Such investments are expected to bring new opportunities to the supercapacitor market.
Key Market Trends
Increasing Demand for Renewable Energy Solutions is Expected to Drive the Market Growth
The use of supercapacitors for renewable energy applications has grown over the years. Hence, increasing focus on renewable energy sources is a huge opportunity for supercapacitor manufacturers. Currently, the Asia-Pacific is leading renewable energy consumption, its variants, and other potential materials, which is driving the supercapacitor market. The supercapacitor is a new energy storage device that can provide more power density than batteries and more energy density than ordinary capacitors.
Due to their advantages, such as very high efficiency, high charge/discharge current capability, and wide temperature range, supercapacitors are being employed in an expanding variety of applications, including renewable energy power production, transportation, power systems, and many more. Furthermore, a hybrid energy storage system consisting of battery and supercapacitor (SC) is proposed for use in wind farms to achieve power dispatchability. In the designed scheme, the battery’s charging/discharging powers are controlled, while the faster wind power transients are diverted to the supercapacitor. This enhances the lifetime of the battery.
Also, several government initiatives are likely to drive supercapacitors in the market studied. For instance, in July 2021, According to the state planner, China announced to add more than 30 gigawatts of energy storage capacity by 2025 to enhance renewable energy usage while keeping the electric system stable. Furthermore, electricity storage techniques that use electrochemical, compressed air, flywheel, and supercapacitor systems are referred to as new energy storage, as opposed to pumped hydro, which uses water held behind dams to create electricity as needed. According to the China Energy Storage Alliance, China has a total energy storage capacity of around 35 GW by 2020, with just 3.3 GW being new energy storage.
Storage is one of the biggest obstacles preventing the widespread use of renewable energy sources, like wind and solar power. The US energy grid system is used for distributing energy and allows little flexibility for the storage of excess on short notice. Conventional supercapacitors have a high-power output with minimal degradation in performance for as many as 1,000,000 charge-discharge cycles. There are upgrades to power generation from renewable resources to reduce the rapid depletion of natural resources, which is expected to drive the market for supercapacitors in the coming years. Moreover, there is an increasing demand for renewable energy generation, observed in countries across Europe, Asia, and the United States, which would further fuel the growth of the market studied.
Furthermore, in November 2021, Researchers from the Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) at the University of Surrey and the University of So Paulo have devised an innovative analysis technique that will aid scientists in developing better supercapacitors for renewable energy storage. Researchers may now explore the complicated interconnected behavior of supercapacitor electrodes formed from layers of different materials using the team’s innovative approach.
Also, energy storage improvements are essential if governments meet carbon reduction commitments. Because solar and wind energy are inherently unpredictable, adequate storage is essential to assure supply constancy, and to cater supercapacitors are seen as a crucial part of the solution. Supercapacitors may also hold the key to charging electric vehicles far more quickly than lithium-ion batteries allow. However, more research into supercapacitors is required to ensure that they can successfully store enough electricity. Governments and enterprises across the world have announced their commitment to adding around 826GW of new non-hydro renewable power capacity by 2030. Such investments are driving increased opportunities in the market.
Asia Pacific Expected to be the Fastest-growing Region
In China, the demand for supercapacitors is expected to grow by one of the highest growth rates in the world for a long time to meet the carbon neutrality targets by 2060. Benefiting from the increased demand in downstream markets, such as electric vehicles, the overall market share of the supercapacitors in China would continue to rise. With policy support from the government, many new players have positioned themselves in the market. There are large market players such as the state-owned CRRC (China Railroad Rolling Stock Corporation), Nantong Jianghai, Shanghai Aowei, and Jinzhou Kaimei. There are new players in supercapacitor manufacturing, such as Beihai Sence Carbon Materials Technology, Jiangsu Zhongtian Technology Group, and Tianjin Plannano Energy Technologies. Research institutions and universities, including Donghua University, Jiangsu University, South Central University, and Tsinghua University, have been involved in innovation in the supercapacitors sector through patent filing, among other things.
The automotive industry is growing rapidly in China, and the country is playing an increasingly important role in the global automotive market. The government views the automotive industry, including the auto parts sector, as one of its country’s pillar industries. The Central Government of China estimates that China’s automobile output shall reach 35 million units by 2025 that caters to supercapacitors’ demand. Electric vehicles are becoming more popular, and China is considered one of the leading adopters. For developments in China’s transportation industry, the 13th Five-Year Plan encourages the development of green mobility alternatives such as hybrid and electric vehicles.
Further, in May 2020, researchers at Penn State and two universities in China announced a new supercapacitor based on manganese oxide that could combine batteries’ storage capacity with the high power and fast charging of other supercapacitors. The group compared their supercapacitor to others with higher energy density and power. They believe that their material can be used in electric vehicles by scaling up lateral dimensions and thickness.
Additionally, transportation is one of the important infrastructures that has supported the Japanese economy and has evolved along with other industries’ growth. Additionally, Japan is on the road toward electric vehicles. The biggest motor vehicle company in the country, Toyota, partnered with another player, Mazda, to develop electric vehicle technologies for electric cars, including mini-vehicles, passenger cars, SUVs, and light trucks. This caters to the demand of supercapacitors.
The Japanese government has aimed to have all new cars sold in Japan be electric or hybrid vehicles by 2050. The country plans to offer subsidies to accelerate the private-sector development of batteries and motors for an electricity-powered vehicle. Furthermore, Japanese bus and truck makers are focusing more on electric vehicles production, as the government is pushing for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles. For instance, Hino Motors Ltd launched its first model of a diesel-electric hybrid truck.
Utility companies in Japan are adopting smart electricity meters. The Japanese government has moved its focus to demand-side management, with a greater emphasis on energy security and resiliency via smart grid and energy-saving technologies. Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO), Japan’s largest power utility, expects to have 29 million smart meters installed in 2020. The country estimates to have about 80 million units to be deployed by 2024, a target that was brought forward for eight years from the original plan. Hence, the growing applications of supercapacitors in such areas are expected to drive the market.
Japan also employs large supercapacitors as the 4 MW systems are installed in commercial buildings to reduce grid consumption at peak demand times and ease loading. Other applications start backup generators during power outages and provide power until the switch-over is stabilized. However, According to International Energy Agency (IEA), the sales volume of battery electric vehicles in Japan amounted to 14.6 thousand units in 2020, displaying a strong decrease over from 2018. All the above trends are expected to restraint the market’s growth of BEV for some period.
