The Global Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor (MLCC) Market was valued at USD 5,624.2 million in 2018; it is expected to reach USD 8,067.2 million by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of 6.38%.


Market Synopsis

The Global Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor (MLCC) Market was valued at USD 5,624.2 million in 2018; it is expected to reach USD 8,067.2 million by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of 6.38%.

Multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) Market is an important component in electrical and electronic devices including mobile devices, automobiles, and household appliances. Capacitors enable temporary storage of electric charges in electronic circuits; they are also used for noise suppression to eliminate unnecessary signals. The demand for MLCCs has increased drastically in the last two years owing to increasing demand for automotive components, the emergence of 5G, and rapid adoption of IoT. High capacitance MLCCs are in demand for IoT devices due to high reliability and long service life offered by them. Also, the need for high-performance electronics and electrical devices is creating the need for capacitors in high-end products. MLCC has several advantages including wide capacitance and voltage range, highly reliable performance, compactness, and stable temperature dependence. Multilayer ceramic capacitors are of two types: Class I and Class II. Class I ceramic capacitors have superior stability and linear characteristics. Class II capacitors perform better than Class I ceramic capacitor, however, they offer low accuracy. However, there has been a shortage of supply of MLCCs due to increasing demand in automotive electronics and IoT devices.
