Film Capacitor Market Size and Overview 

Globally, the size of film capacitor market is expected to grow at USD 2 Billion by 2023, at a 2 % of CAGR between 2017 and 2023 driven by the growth of the increase in the demand and subsequently the adoption of EVs and HEVs.

Film capacitor are referred to as Film caps made up of two films made up of plastic. These Plastic film capacitor are covered with metallic electrodes and are then wound into a winding in the shape of a cylinder. The effective use of the film chip capacitor includes the application of film capacitor requiring high frequency and high power, including heating.

These capacitors are brought into service in various sectors, which is attributed to their attractive characteristics. These capacitors have the edge over the other capacitors because they are manufactured with high precision. During the manufacturing, it is also sure that it retains the capacitance value for a longer time. They also exhibit longer shelf life and a low rate of failure. These are available in different forms like polyester film, polypropylene film, and polystyrene film.
