A filter capacitor is an electronic component connected in parallel to a power supply or signal source which is used in electrical circuits to filter out unwanted fluctuations in voltage or current. The types of filter capacitors include electrolytic capacitors, tantalum capacitors, film capacitors, and ceramic capacitors which find applicability in the power & energy and electrical & electronics sectors to ensure stable and clean power supply for efficient operation of devices and systems. The surge in electronic device production and the rise in demand for electricity will bolster the demand for filter capacitors, ensuring their market growth.

The increased production of electronic devices propels the filter capacitors market growth

Filter capacitors play a vital role in consumer electronic devices like laptops, smartphones, televisions, and other home appliances by ensuring a stable and reliable power supply, minimizing electrical noise, and protecting sensitive electronic components. They are commonly used in power supplies, voltage regulators, and DC-DC converters within these devices to smooth out the incoming power, reducing voltage ripples and noise that could potentially disrupt or damage the circuitry. The increase in the production of electrical & electronic devices due to a surge in consumer demand coupled with the launches of smart home devices is expected to accelerate the demand for filter capacitors. According to the National Investment Promotion & Facilitation Agency in 2022, the domestic production of electronic items in India had increased from 3,17,331 crore (USD 49 billion) in 2016-17 to 6,40,810 crore (USD 87.1 billion) in 2021-22. In 2022, Eve company launched a security camera for smart homes called "Eve Outdoor Cam" which was designed for "Apple HomeKit Secure Video", which had features like 1080p video, a 157-degree field of view, infrared night vision, and infrared motion detection covering 100 degrees at distances of up to 30 feet.

The rise in electricity demand across various sectors is expected to accelerate the market growth.

The electricity demand is increasing across various sectors like construction, industrial, etc and to meet this growing demand, power generation, and distribution systems need to operate efficiently and reliably. Filter capacitors play a crucial role in power generation plants, substations, and electrical grids by reducing electrical noise, smoothing out voltage fluctuations, and improving power quality. They help to maintain a stable and consistent power supply, ensuring uninterrupted operations and preventing damage to sensitive equipment. Furthermore, the increasing deployment of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, adds complexity to the power generation mix. These energy sources often generate power with variable and intermittent characteristics. Filter capacitors are used in power conversion and conditioning systems to smooth out fluctuations and ensure a steady supply of electricity. The increase in demand for electricity by end-users coupled with investments to improve and develop power grids will boost the demand for filter capacitors. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) report in 2022, the global electricity demand is expected to grow from 5 900 terawatt-hours (TWh) in 2021 to over 7 000 TWh in 2030. In 2022, Biden-Harris Administration announced an investment of $10.5 billion to enhance the resilience and reliability of America’s electric grid.

During the forecast period, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to hold a significant market share.

The Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to hold a major share due to the large consumer base of consumer electronics, the rapidly growing energy sector, and the region being a hub for electronics manufacturing. In 2022, the State Grid Corporation of China announced that it would invest over CNY150bn ($22bn) in the second half of 2022 for executing a new batch of ultra-high voltage (UHV) power transmission projects across China. In 2021, in the second round of the production-linked incentives (PLI) scheme for electronics manufacturing by the Indian government, it was mentioned that the companies would get incentives up to 3-5% based on sales of electronics manufacturing in India, and was expected to generate a total production of up to INR 12,432 crore. These positive developments will propel the demand for filter capacitors, thereby increasing their regional market growth.
