Discrete Capacitor Market: Applications and Global Markets

Press Release   •   Jan 05, 2018 05:38 EST

A discrete capacitor is a small rechargeable battery with the capacity to store energy in the form of electric charge and thus create a potential difference across its plates. It has become an indispensable part of various electronic devices and is used extensively in their manufacturing. The global discrete capacitor market is anticipated to experience a stable growth rate during the forecast period owing to its increasing adoption across various sectors in order to satisfy the rising demand for energy-efficient devices.

The rising demand for internet of thing (IoT) is an important factor predicted to fuel the demand for discrete capacitors in the next few years. The growing popularity of IoT devices along with increased use of sensors & capacitors are expected to augment the usage of sophisticated discrete capacitors with high capacitance. In addition, the rising trend of miniaturizing consumer electronic devices is also projected to boost the demand for these smaller and technologically advanced capacitors.
