According to Stratistics MRC, the Global HVDC Capacitor Market is accounted for $6.05 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $17.52 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 16.4% during the forecast period. High voltage direct current (HVDC) capacitors are made for use in DC power supply and other common electronic equipment applications. The safety, dependability, and cost-effectiveness of the gearbox system are optimised by the HVDC capacitor. By finding faults and defects in goods without interfering with business operations or slowing down procedures, it ensures safety and dependability. In addition due to growing awareness of the negative effects that fossil fuels have on the environment, increased power generation from renewable sources of energy is anticipated to see exponential development, further driving the market's expansion.

According to the US-based National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) study, the cost-optimal amount of solar installations by 2038 would change if long-distance HVDC transmission was added across the United States.

Market Dynamics:


The need for HVDC capacitors raises as a result of HVDC transmission systems

The key component of the HVDC transmission system is an HVDC capacitor is essential for converting AC to DC, moving power between converter stations, and converting DC to AC again so that it may be supplied into the power grid. They aid in preserving voltage stability, enhancing the calibre of the power, and promptly controlling power flow. By quickly controlling the power flow in the transmission lines, they also lessen the chance of short-circuiting current. At the receiving converter station at the end of the HVDC connection, capacitor banks also safeguard and guarantee that the AC output voltage is constant and prepared to be supplied into the electrical grid. As a result, the market is growing due to the rising demand for HVDC transmission systems.


Risks associated with release of toxic products from HVDC capacitors

Even after the equipment has been de-energized, HV capacitors may continue to store harmful energy and develop an unsafe residual charge on their own. Some capacitors' liquid dielectric or its combustion by products may be harmful. When dielectric or metal connectivity failures take place in HV capacitors, an arc fault is produced. Within oil-filled units, the dielectric fluid vaporises, causing case bulge and breakage. In addition, even while in regular operation, HV vacuum capacitors can emit mild X-rays. These elements pose risks to both people and the environment.


A rise in interest in electric cars

An HVDC capacitor is primarily used in electric vehicles to increase DC bus voltage stability and prevent ripple currents from returning to the power source. When electric vehicles utilise batteries to supply energy, they are also employed to safeguard semiconductor components and for decoupling purposes. DC link capacitors help electric vehicle applications' inverters, motor controllers, and battery systems balance the effects of inductance. By serving as filters (EMI), they also protect EV subsystems from voltage surges, spikes, and electromagnetic interference.


Tragic explosion

It is difficult to pinpoint the precise reason for the failure of capacitor banks, and the capacitor banks have the potential to burst catastrophically while in service. In the capacitor bank, the capacitor units and inductors are linked in series. Due to insufficient voltage rating, the capacitor bank fails catastrophically when the voltage across the capacitor units exceeds the design values. Fuse blowing may occur as a result of a short circuit in the capacitor unit brought on by excessive current and voltage. Fuse failure might be brought on by inappropriate capacitor unit application, fatigue, or branch protection issues. Failure brought on by stress both inside and outside. Hence all the above factors hinder the growth of market.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 epidemic has had a substantial negative impact on the market for high voltage direct current (HVDC) capacitors worldwide. Due to the global downturn and lack of labour, production facilities for electronics and semiconductors have been put on hold. Travel restrictions and facility closures caused by the COVID-19 epidemic kept workers away from their workplaces, which resulted in a major and prolonged decline in factory utilisation.

The ceramic capacitor segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The ceramic capacitor segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to its great stability and capacitance and their capacity to counteract the effects of temperature, ceramic capacitors can function at high temperatures. As a result, they are frequently utilised as a resonant circuit for non-contact charging equipment as well as a smoothing snubber for electric car and hybrid electric vehicle motor drive inverters. A reliable operation of electronic circuits is also ensured by MLCCs, which are crucial electronic components. As a result, they are frequently found in consumer electronics like smart phones, laptops, and tablets.

The pole-mounted capacitor Banks segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The pole-mounted capacitor segment is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the capacity to be repaired or automated in a single step. These banks provide a number of advantages, including better voltage management and power factor, a straightforward design, affordable equipment, and a smaller installation footprint. As a result, they are used in applications for large industrial loads, induction furnaces, distribution transformers, and agricultural loads. By adopting a pole-mount framework, these capacitor banks may be mounted at great heights above the ground to transfer electricity over great distances. The pole-mounted sector is anticipated to see the greatest CAGR throughout the projection period as a result.

Region with largest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the best option for reducing power loss and increasing efficiency during long-distance point-to-point power transmission in the area, additionally, the market is expanding as a result of the region's increasing industrial change. Further, the region is investing significantly in the HVDC transmission lines in recent years, which have attracted foreign vendors and has also boosted the local manufacturer's growth.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to their rapid adoption of HVDC transmission systems; the area is among the top investors and adopters in the industry under study. For instance, to increase the transmission capacity and network stability, residential, commercial, and industrial users in the United States continue to promote the adoption of HVDC capacitors. Additionally, The rising trend of real-time monitoring of energy consumption, coupled with high automation level in smart factories across the region, have permitted real-time monitoring of energy-consuming equipment, including HVAC, which is anticipated to aid the market growth over the forecast period.
