Shunt Capacitor Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Need for Distribution Energy The increased urbanization along with industrialization has prompted the rise in consumption of electricity for varied processes. Also, the high demand from end-use industries is expected to increase the production of electricity and energy which, in turn, is projected to expand the market size of shunt capacitor. In 2021, the U.S. primary energy consumption by energy sources used 36% petroleum, 8% nuclear electric power, 11% coal, 12% renewable energy, and 325 natural gas which adds to a total of 97.33 quadrillion Btu (British Thermal Units).

  • Rapid Adoption of Electricity in Rural Areas - The worldwide population with access to electricity increased from 87.7% of the population in 2016 to 90.5 % of the population in 2020.

  • Increasing Demand for Telecommunication - The Federal Communications Commission and Department of Education working together to promote remote learning with the use of USD 16 billion funds from the CARES Act’s Education Stabilization Fund.

  • Rise of Industries and Manufacturing Units - U.S Manufacturing contributed USD 2269.2 to U.S GDP in 2020 which is 10.8% of total GDP. Also, in 2019, the U.S. manufacturing imported value of intermediate goods and services is 14.7% leading to 10.7% output from foreign origin.

  • Increase in Power Generation and Supply - As per Electricity Market Report, coal-fired electricity generation is targeted to increase by 5% in 2021 and 3% in 2022 to reach a new high record. With current policy settings and economic trends, the world electricity generation is set to track 8% electricity demand in 2021 and higher than 6% in 2022.


  • Unfavorable Production During COVID-19 Pandemic - As per the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean more than 2.7 million companies were expected to close down of which 2.6 million microenterprises and 8.5 million jobs were at stake during the pandemic in 2020. Since, the company was shut down the production capacity was also reduced. However even though the market tried to boost after the pandemic still the growth is relatively slower as compared to that of before pandemic.

Shunt Capacitor Segmentation

Application (Utilities, Industries)

The global shunt capacitor market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into utilities, industries, and others. Out of these, the industries segment is anticipated to hold the largest market size by the end of 2035 in the global shunt capacitor market. The growth of the market segment is on account of rapid growth in the economy and population that led to increasing telecommunication such as fiber net and broadband. As per the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, in 2021 the number of fixed subscriptions raised by 18.6%, and fixed broadband subscriptions increased by 32.4% in 2022. Additionally, there has been exponential growth in residential and commercial construction sector. Owing to the growing population and rise in shift of people from rural to urban region the demand for construction activities is growing which is further boosting the growth of the construction sector.

Type (Low, Medium, High Voltage)

The global shunt capacitor market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by voltage type into low, medium, and high. Amongst which, the high segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to growing launch of satellites which requires coil guns. A multi-stage coil with a coil arrangement acting as a launcher is charged by a high voltage capacitor system that is energy intensive to operate. Unfortunately, big currents and the high voltage necessary are extremely limited. Hence, other methods of energy storage include high voltage capacitor banks is used. Additionally, the growing demand for grid infrastructure in order to stratify the need for increasing electricity accessibility is also estimated to boost the segment growth.
