Purchasing power in the couPurchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%. On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.                                                         Request Insights

Global Shunt Capacitor Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2022 - 2031


The global shunt capacitor market is estimated to garner significant revenue by the end of 2031 by growing at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Further, the market generated significant revenue in the year 2021. Shunt capacitors help in power factor correction to support the voltage of the transmission systems. A shunt capacitor generates a low resistance path for the high voltage current flow. A shunt capacitor helps to improve power quality and reduce power breakage and voltage imbalance. The shunt capacitor is used in the power system to support the electric cables. The growth of the market can be attributed to increasing in power generation plants and transmission cables. The Global Power Plant Database covers about 30,000 power plants from around 164 countries involving thermal plants and renewables.
