The new market research study analyzes the global markets for both AC plastic film and DC plastic film capacitors.  In the fragmented, fast growing AC film capacitor segment, the study focuses on the global market for polypropylene dielectric plastic film capacitors, including both dry and liquid-filled designs for use in electrical systems (power transmission and distribution capacitors; motor run capacitors, industrial drive capacitors; renewable energy capacitors; power film capacitors; microwave oven capacitors, magnetic ballast capacitors, and specialty power film capacitors (i.e. DC Link, furnace, traction, welding, other). The second part of the study focuses on DC film capacitors for printed circuit board applications in power supply, lighting ballast, consumer AV and specialty/defense applications, and includes value and volume of demand for 5 mm pitch PET film capacitors; AC & Pulse film capacitors, interference suppression film capacitors and PPS, PEN and PET film chip capacitors; as well as specialty PTFE and polyimide film capacitors for consumption in high temperature electronics. The study also includes a detailed analysis of the global market for AC and DC film capacitors by customer base, end-use market segment, channel of distribution; circuit application and world region; and also includes a review of the supply chain for plastic dielectric materials consumed as capacitor dielectric materials, including polypropylene (OPP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) and polyethylene naphthalate (PEN), and other exotic dielectric films (Teflon®, Kapton®). The study includes a detailed analysis of market shares by capacitor type and sub-category. Also, the study forecasts global demand for both AC and DC plastic film capacitors by type, sub-category, end-use market segment and world region to 2020. 152 companies actively participating in the plastic film capacitor markets worldwide are discussed and identified in this report.
