Supercapacitors - Introducing the Energy Storage Solution

News provided by Zhar Research on Monday 29th Jan 2024

Create a $1 billion supercapacitor business. Supercapacitors are made in 22 countries by over 100 manufacturers but the data-based analysis in a new, commercially-oriented Zhar Research report shows that a shakeout and regrowth are ahead. The market will reach $17 billion but not through today’s dominant sector of on-road vehicles. The 486-page report, “Supercapacitor, Pseudocapacitor, CSH and BSH Hybrid Market Forecasts in 26 Lines, 110 Manufacturers Appraised, Deep Technology Analysis, Roadmaps, Next Successes 2024-2044” is much more thorough and up-to-date than anything previously available. It even closely examines the capacitor-supercapacitor hybrids essential for new radar, the new hydrogen-supercapacitor and supercapacitor-only trains and many off-road vehicles newly adopting battery-supercapacitor hybrids. No other report takes 100 close-packed pages to analyse 110 manufacturers with comment, pie charts and strategies. Your potential acquisitions and partners are appraised.

Dr Peter Harrop, CEO of Zhar Research says, 

“Here come less-intermittent, zero-emission electricity sources such as wave-power and open-ocean tidal power plus microgrids and unmanned mining. Expect laser guns, electromagnetic and electrodynamic weapons, thermonuclear fusion power, widespread robotics. They all need supercapacitors and their variants for fit-and-forget and handling massive pulses and currents even when very cold.”

With a flood of new research on supercapacitors in 2023 and 2024, it is time for a new report that is both up-to-date and forward-looking, with clarity and expert insight including scope for mergers, potential winners and losers and how research needs redirecting to optimise benefits 2024-2044. The needs of 6G Communications in 2030? It is all here with opportunities for value added materials companies highlighted.

There is a glossary at the start and terms are explained throughout. See hundreds of latest research reports discussed and Zhar Research drill down reports also available. Who benefits from the strong move to non-flammable, less toxic, large versions? Why the rush into battery-supercapacitor hybrids, with orders to prove it? Only lithium-ion capacitors or do the two new options have potential? Why the strong research on metal oxide framework MOF and MXene electrodes in the last year but graphene triumphant so far?

The report, “Supercapacitor, Pseudocapacitor, CSH and BSH Hybrid Market Forecasts in 26 Lines, 110 Manufacturers Appraised, Deep Technology Analysis, Roadmaps, Next Successes 2024-2044” is essential reading for those seeking success in providing the research, funding, added value materials, devices and applications.

This uniquely-useful, commercially-oriented report starts with 54 pages of Executive Summary and Conclusions sufficient for those in a hurry. See 16 new infograms, 6 SWOT appraisals, technology and market roadmap 2024-2044, 30 key conclusions. For example, Europe has fewer manufacturers than China or the USA and is a net importer. Time to wake up. See 26 supercapacitor forecast lines plus 20 forecast lines 2024-2044 for equipment fitting them.

The 30-page introduction is mainly new infograms, summaries and comparisons succinctly giving the latest context. Notably that means electrification and the need for storage, how going electric will dwarf the hydrogen economy but both need electrical storage. See how energy harvesting creates markets for storage, the beyond-grid opportunity, examples of needs for delayed electricity. Then see the energy storage toolkit and operating parameter comparisons. For instance, on one page, 34 parameters for Li-ion battery, supercapacitor and LIC variant are compared. Next come the design and chemistry of capacitors including supercapacitors and chapter ends by explaining how supercapacitors are more than energy storage and how, in the real world, there is lively competition between all capacitor and battery technologies with many examples. There follow four chapters on next technologies and five chapters on the applications that will make the money 2024-2044 then a large final chapter comparing the companies.

Chapter 3 is “Future design principles, materials, research pipeline for supercapacitors including 2024”. These 54 pages particularly appraise the latest situation with electrolyte chemistries and their matched active electrode morphologies plus membranes all identifying your best opportunities to supply value added materials in future and to create and sell the most successful devices. For example, there is much detail on the many ways graphene assists and a warning that the feeble research on reducing self-leakage does not reflect the strong market need for improvement in this parameter.

Chapter 4 “Future design of pseudocapacitors, CSH and BSH hybrid supercapacitors” (28 pages) looks closer at these improving technologies, including aspects capable of making BSH the largest value market. Understand the relative commercial potential of supercapacitor variants 2024-2044. That includes mechanisms of pseudocapacitance and its influence on CSH and BSH and potential as a separate product. What about sodium-ion capacitors as a form of battery supercapacitor hybrid BSH and other BSH proposals in the flood of 2023 and 2024 research? Capacitor-supercapacitor hybrid design is at the end of the chapter, important as several markets move towards them. Aluminium versions anyone?

The 28 pages of Chapter 5 cover “Flexible, stretchable, fabric, micro and structural supercapacitors including paper, wire and cable. See assessment of whether all that research, even including transparent, solid state and biodegradable versions and even ones within integrated circuits can lead to commercial success and why.

Chapter 6 takes 19 pages to cover “Structural supercapacitors” with research now pivoting from car bodywork to aircraft and to smart casing for electronics for better chance of commercial success. Why do aerogels pop up here?

Now come the markets that will earn the big money 2024-2044. Chapter 7 introduces them with “Emerging markets : basic trends and best prospects compared between energy, vehicles, aerospace, military, electronics, other”. It takes only 11 pages because it consists mainly of new infograms, tables and pie charts covering such things as “Market analysis for the six most important applicational sectors” in 6 columns, 5 lines and “Market propositions of the most-promising supercapacitor families 2024-2044” in 6 columns, 3 lines. Another describes largest lithium-ion capacitors offered by 7 manufacturers with 4 parameters and comment.

The market detail then starts with Chapter 8. “Energy sector emerging markets for supercapacitors and their variants” (49 pages), starting with “Overview: poor, modest and strong prospects 2024-2044” and mostly detailing the opportunities in “thermonuclear power”, “less-intermittent grid electricity generation: wave, tidal stream, elevated wind”, beyond-grid power and fast chargers for electric vehicles land and air because all read to the strengths of supercapacitors. See both examples and intentions.

Chapter 9 is 48 pages on “Emerging land vehicle and marine applications: automotive, bus, truck train, off-road construction, agriculture, mining, forestry, material handling, boats, ships”. Chapter 10 at 29 pages is “Emerging applications in 6G Communications, electronics and small electrics” again with compact comparisons and infograms. Chapter 11, “Emerging military and aerospace applications” in 19 pages analysing and comparing key aspects of this rapidly emerging sector demanding all three – CSH, supercapacitor and BSH. For example, electrodynamic and electromagnetic weapons including force field all use supercapacitors and also military hybrid and diesel vehicles because they are not replaced by battery electric as seen on-road because their duty cycles are too demanding. Chapter 12 is 100 pages comparing 110 companies in detail in ten columns plus colour coding and pie charts.

That is why we suggest that the report, “Supercapacitor, Pseudocapacitor, CSH and BSH Hybrid Market Forecasts in 26 Lines, 110 Manufacturers Appraised, Deep Technology Analysis, Roadmaps, Next Successes 2024-2044” is essential reading for investors, value-added materials suppliers, device manufacturers, product and system integrators with much to interest legislators, researchers, users and other interested parties as well.
