Global Tantalum Capacitors Market: Introduction
Tantalum capacitors are sub-segment type of electrolytic capacitors. These capacitors are made of tantalum metal which acts as an anode, covered by an oxide layer which acts as the dielectric, surrounded by the conductive cathode. These capacitors are polarized capacitors with superior frequency and stability characteristics. These capacitors have relatively high permittivity dielectric layer which is very thin, and that distinguishes from other conventional and electrolytic capacitors in having lower weight and high capacitance per volume. Because of the advances in technology the tantalum capacitors are used in a wide variety of circuits, electronic gadgets, automotive industry, cell phones and others, most often in the form of Surface Mounted Devices (SMD). Very less space is claimed by this surface mount tantalum capacitors on the printed circuit board and allow for greater packing densities. With the help of these features tantalum capacitors market is expected to grow significantly.
Global Tantalum Capacitors Market: Dynamics
The growing importance and demand for electronic gadgets such as smartphones, tablets and other equipment is the major factor driving the growth of the Tantalum Capacitor Market. Tantalum capacitors have numerous applications because of their long term stability, high capacity, reliability and low leakage current. Hence they are used in sample and hold circuits, medical devices, audio amplifiers and they are also used for power supply filtering on motherboards of electronic gadgets like laptops and cell phones. Due to their wider application the demand of tantalum capacitors is increasing, fueling the growth of the market. Moreover these capacitors are also used extensively in the aviation and land based gas turbine, because of which the growth in aviation and aerospace industries of Tantalum Capacitors is going to rise at a good pace.
However majority of the Tantalum ores are located in Africa and there is a ban on mining in the African continent, hence this ban will lead to a demand and supply gap in the near future which in turn will rise the price of the capacitors. So the price rise of the capacitors is expected to badly impact the growth of the Tantalum Capacitors market.
