Value-Added & Application Specific Ceramic Capacitors: World Markets, Technologies & Opportunities: 2012-2017 157 Pages $2750 USD ISBN # 1-893211-90-8 (2012) FOCUS OF THE REPORT: This market, technologies & opportunities report from Paumanok Publications, Inc. is an update to the popular 2005 title. This study provides an in-depth analysis of value-added and application specific ceramic capacitor world markets, including high voltage ceramic capacitors >500 Vdc,, high frequency ceramic capacitors > 1 Ghz, high temperature ceramic capacitors >200 Degrees C; Ceramic feed thru capacitors; Ceramic safety capacitors (X&Y) and automotive under-the-hood ceramic capacitors for applications between 125 degrees C and 175 degrees C for applications in specialty segments of the power conversion, telecom infrastructure, medical test & scan, medical implant, defense, lighting and automotive market segments. REASON FOR THE REPORT: As mass produced ceramic capacitor products move to low-cost manufacturing regions, ceramic capacitor manufacturers in Japan, the United States and Western Europe must re-evaluate their existing production facilities in high-cost regions, and reposition their product portfolios to address markets that will most probably stay localized. The majority of these markets require value-added and application-specific ceramic capacitors that address high voltage, high frequency and/or high temperature and harsh environment requirements. This market study sheds light on the fragmented, low volume, high value, highly profitable portion of the global ceramic capacitor industry. BENEFITS OF THE REPORT: This report gives detailed intelligence data on the specialty segment of the global ceramic capacitor market, where operating margins are the highest and where price is secondary to component quality and performance. As the low picofarad MLCC markets become inundated with suppliers, companies with smaller economies of scale must refocus all or part of their product portfolio. This new focus should include application specific ceramic capacitors to increase profit margins and delay the continued price erosion in their overall ceramic capacitor product offering. This analysis sheds light on the fragmented, diverse, but highly profitable segment of the global ceramic capacitor industry. PRODUCT FOCUS OF THE REPORT: • High voltage ceramic capacitors- >500 VDC • High frequency ceramic capacitors > 1GHz • High temperature ceramic capacitors> 200 Degrees C • Ceramic feedthru ceramic capacitors • Ceramic safety capacitors (X&Y) • Automotive Under-The-Hood Capacitors 125 to 175 Degrees C END-MARKET AND CUSTOMER SEGMENT ANALYSIS: • Power Supplies • Defense Electronics • Medical Test & Scan • Medical Implants • Wireless Base Stations • Defense Communications • Semiconductor Mfg. Equipment • Oilwell & Mining Electronics • Lab Test & Measurement Equipment • Undersea Cable Repeaters • Automotive Under-The Hood • Lighting Ballasts
