Global and China Supercapacitor Industry Report, 2016-2020

NEW YORK, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Supercapacitor, an electrochemical energy storage device between conventional capacitor and secondary battery, is characterized by short charging/discharging time, long service life, good temperature property, energy saving, and environmental friendliness, and can partly replace traditional chemical battery.

Global supercapacitor industry has grownslower than lithium battery industry in recent years, largely due to lukewarm capital support for supercapacitor from governments and investors. Global supercapacitor market size reached about RMB28.36 billion in 2015 and is predicted to maintain a growth rate of around 20% over the next five years.
