A super-capacitor, also named as ultra-capacitor, has a high capacity and higher capacitance compared to conventional capacitors. It is capable of storing 10 to 100 times more energy per unit volume than electrolytic capacitor. This supercapacitor acts as a bridge between capacitors and rechargeable batteries, to fill the gap between them. Super-capacitors can be used for power regulation in batteries. Super-capacitors are able to receive and discharge charge much faster as compared to a battery. It has low impedance, due to which it has high and low temperature charge and discharge capacity. Owing to this property, super-capacitor are suitable for application where faster charging and discharging is required, rather than energy storage for long period of time. These applications includes cars, trains, buses, and elevators, where it can be utilized for regenerative braking and storage of energy for short period of time.
Other major applications include wind turbines. In wind turbine application, supercapacitors responsible for smoothing out the discontinuous power supplied by the wind.
Growth in consumer electronics sector is expected to be a major factor for growth in the global super-capacitor market. This is owing to increasing adoption of smart, sustainable, and convenient devices. For example, in smartphones and laptops, there is a requirement for longer electric power backup, and super-capacitor fulfills this requirement. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, as of 2016, around 350 units of mobile devices were sold globally, which accounted for an increase of over 3.7% from 2015. Revenue generated by smartphone devices alone, accounted for over 70% sales of the global mobile devices in 2016.
However, high cost of materials is expected to restrain growth of the global super-capacitor market. For instance, graphene is most commonly used in supercapacitors as electrolytes, which is more expensive than activated carbon. Its initial high cost exceeds the cost of lithium ion batteries.
