As per the report BOPP (Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene) Capacitor Film Market By Thickness ( 3µm, 4~6 µm, 7~9 µm, 10~12 µm, 13~15µm, >15µm ), By Application ( Power Converter Stations, Locomotive, Automotive, Industrial) Industry trends, Estimation & Forecast, 2017 - 2025" In 2016, the power converter station segment garnered the highest market share in the global BOPP capacitor film market. Among major regions, North America was the highest revenue generating market, holding nearly 30% of the market share, in 2016.

Film capacitors are a large family of capacitors that vary depending upon their dielectric properties. More than 50% of the film capacitors are manufactured via biaxially oriented polypropylene films, as it offers high electrostatic capacitance, low dissipation factor, and low self-heating characteristic. BOPP capacitor films have humongous growth opportunities due to their surging applications in various industries such as consumer electronics, energy & power, automotive, locomotive, and several others.

Automotive segment to offer lucrative opportunities and witness an impressive growth rate during the forecast period

In 2016, the power converter station garnered the highest revenue. However, the surging applications of film capacitors in the automotive industry is expected to offer a high growth rate to the sector. The constantly increasing demand for energy saving and alternative energy sources has led to an accelerated emergence of products such as hybrid vehicles and electric vehicles. Film capacitors find a vital role in the manufacturing and functioning of automobiles, due to which this segment is expected to offer lucrative opportunities to the market players and enhance the products efficiency.

Thinner BOPP films to gain traction in the upcoming years due to their peculiar characteristics

The adoption of thin films for capacitor manufacturing is on a rise. As the thickness of BOPP films decreases, the electrostatic capacitance of the capacitors increases. Generally, films having a thickness of less than 7µm are preferred for the manufacturing of capacitors. The 3µm segment is anticipated to grow with the highest CAGR of 5.14% during the forecast period. The advent of thinner BOPP capacitor films is leading to the emergence of nouveu applications of film capacitors in new energy fields and energy vehicles.
