The study begins with a complete technology analysis of capacitor dielectrics by type, configuration and performance characteristic; and then offers a complete assessment of the current market environment, including positive and negative influences impacting the market for FY 2016, including currency valuations, emerging technologies, government inquiries and legislation; and merger and acquisition activity, and makes detailed forecasts for upcoming quarters and for FY 2017 and FY 2018, with complete long-term forecasts to 2021. The study then analyzes the global market for capacitors by type including historical and forecasted value and volume of global consumption of capacitors by type; as well as historical, current and future average unit selling prices by type (2003-2016; 2017 to 2021 forecasts). The study also discusses the global market for capacitors by type and consumption by world region and key country of consumption with near term forecasts for FY 2016 and long-term forecasts to 2021. The study also addresses the global capacitor market by type and end-use market segment with detailed near term and long term forecasts for capacitor consumption in the telecommunications, computer, consumer AV, automotive, power & industrial and specialty end-use market segments (i.e. defense, medical, oil & gas, commercial aerospace, instrumentation and other). The study also offers detailed market share data by vendor in each capacitor type and sub-category; and offers value, volume and pricing forecasts by capacitor type to 2019. Key producer profiles are offered including annual and quarterly revenue forecasts for FY 2015 including AVX, KEMET, Murata, Nichicon, Nippon Chemi-Con, Panasonic, Rubycon, Samsung EMCO, Taiyo Yuden, TDK, Vishay, Walsin and Yageo.
