Table of Contents: Raw Material Usage and Supply In The Global Capacitor Industry:

Quick Overview

This newly released 290 page report details the global market for primary raw materials consumed in the global capacitor industry. The study includes a granular analysis of the global markets for ceramic, aluminum, film and tantalum raw materials, including ceramic dielectric materials, etched anode and cathode aluminum foils; metalized plastic films and capacitor grade tantalum powder and wire. The study is broken into five chapters- an executive summary that compares and contrasts the various values, volumes and pricing for engineered capacitor materials; the competitive environment in each segment; and the outlook and comparative forecasts for consumption for each capacitor material. The study then offers four detailed chapters, each covering the supply chain for each capacitor material; and includes ceramic dielectric materials; including barium titanate, formulations and additives for the global ceramic capacitor market; thin aluminum foils and etched anode and cathode foils for the global aluminum electrolytic capacitor market; metallized PP. PET, PEN, PPS and other exotic films for the AC and DC film capacitor industry; and the supply chain for tantalum ore, powder and wire. The study offers the reader complete visibility on the primary electronic materials consumed in the production of capacitors, including the complete competitive landscape; sales by world region; tons consumed; value of consumption and pricing trends and directions. The study also forecasts capacitor materials consumption until 2018. ISBN: 1-893211-75-4 (2013A) 290 pages; 110 Tables; Published September 2013; $3,750.00 USD.
