Quick Overview

This new report from Paumanok Publications, Inc. addresses the global cost of goods sold and industry wide operating profit for the worldwide capacitor industry by type, including 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 (With detailed data for each year since 2007 as to the profit and cost of goods sold of the top 12 capacitor manufacturers). 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 all the granular costs associated with each subset and the unique qualities of each capacitor dielectric) and details the intricate costs associated with the production of each type of capacitor. The study compares key parameters of change since the 2010 and 2013 versions of this report and compares them between each manufacturer. The study also addresses the changes that have occurred in 2014, 2015 and 2016 as a result of lower raw material costs, yen depreciation and shifting end-use market segments. The study also 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 April 2016, 218 Pages, 116 Tables, $2,750.00 USD, ISBN #1-893211-00-2 (2016).
