Global HVDC Capacitor (Plastic Film, Aluminum Electrolyte, Ceramic, Tantalum Wet, Reconstituted Mica, Glass) Market - Trends & Forecast 2013-2020

Dublin, Dec. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "HVDC Capacitor Market by Type, Technology, Installation, Application & Geography - Global Trends & Forecast 2013-2020" report to their offering.

The global HVDC capacitor market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 16.02% to reach $3,890.00 million by 2020. HVDC capacitors aim at optimizing safety, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. HVDC capacitors assure safety and reliability by identifying flaws and defects in products without disrupting operations or delaying processes.

Key applications of high voltage capacitors included in the report are commercial, industrial, energy and power sector, and defense sectors. Among all the applications, the energy and power sector is expected to be the largest contributor to the overall HVDC capacitor market, which held -50% share. While smaller application sectors, such as defense and others (medical, electronics, and so on), which accounted for about 17% of high voltage capacitors market in 2013, are also expected to generate more demand over the coming years.

The report discusses two of the HVDC capacitor technologies - Line Commutated Converter and Voltage Source Converter. It also covers the market for geographic regions comprising North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). In 2013, Europe was the largest geography in terms of market size for the HVDC capacitor market. APAC, Europe, and RoW are also considered as promising markets, along with China, Japan, India, Germany, and the Middle East, which provide impetus to the growth. It is expected that the high investments made by governments in the development of existing power infrastructure and other supportive government regulations to promote the use of renewable energy sources will help in the adoption of HVDC in the Americas.

The report discusses the future of the global market with road-map, upcoming technologies, markets, and applications with respect to HVDC capacitors. The HVDC capacitor market is rapidly growing in the renewable energy sector, which represents potential end-users for this market. Key players in this industry include ABB Ltd. (Switzerland), Epcos AG (Germany), Siemens (Germany), Alstom SA (France), and others.
