Capacitors: Costs To Produce: TOC 2013

Quick Overview

This is the update to the popular market research and competitive analysis report of the same title published three years ago.  The report addresses the global cost of goods sold and industry wide operating profit for the worldwide capacitor industry as a whole and each individual type of capacitor- ceramic, aluminum, tantalum and plastic film. The study addresses fixed and variable costs associated with the production of capacitors, with emphasis upon variable raw material costs, variable labor charges, variable overhead and manufacturing costs and the trend that is occurring with respect to both the cost of goods sold and the overall operating profit for capacitors over time.  The new and expanded version of this study goes down to the granular level studying variable costs and focuses in on variable raw materials costs and breaks down each capacitor type and the associated raw materials costs to produce (dielectric, electrode, termination/lead, packaging) and details the intricate supply chains associated with each type of capacitor.  The study also contains a global market overview for each type of capacitor and a trend analysis regarding specific shifts in demand by key parameter (i.e. region, end-use market segment), and offers a detailed analysis of the top producers of capacitors in the world, including the trend analysis with respect to cost of goods sold and operating profit for AVX Corporation, KEMET Electronics, Murata Manufacturing, Nichicon Corporation, Nippon Chemi-Con Corporation, Panasonic Industrial, Samsung Electro-Mechanical, Taiyo Yuden Company, TDK Corporation, Vishay Intertechnology, Walsin Technology Corporation and Yageo Corporation.  Published July 2013, 164 Pages, 108 Tables, $2,750.00 USD, ISBN #1-893211-00-2 (2013).
