Market Definition:

The High-voltage Capacitor Market was valued at USD 12.36 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 28.74 by 2030 with a CAGR of 10.1% from 2022 to 2030.

A high-voltage capacitor (HVC) is a dual-terminalelectrical component utilized to store energy in an electric field.  These terminals are set apart by an insulating material called dielectric material. Capacitors are also referred to as the Big Three Passive Components that includeCoil, Capacitor, and Resistance,which are the basics of electronic circuits.

The capacitors are one of the most important electric components used in almost every electric device and equipment such as fans, cameras, and AC &DC converters among others. It hasa power capacity ranging from 25 volts for household electronics to 1000 volts for specialized industrial equipment. It offers power flow control and reliability as well as power system segmentation to enhance theflexibility of the grid.
