New breakthroughs have been made in supercapacitor technology and large-scale applications will start
Supercapacitors can partly or totally replace traditional chemical batteries because of their high capacity, high power, long life, low cost and environmental friendliness, and have more extensive uses than traditional chemical batteries. With the continuous development of technology, its application scope has been extended from the initial electronic equipment field to the power field and energy storage field.
All along, China has been actively promoting the development of supercapacitors. In 2006 and 2007, emphasis was placed on the development of supercapacitors. After that, the policy of subsidizing the application of supercapacitors was introduced. In May 2017, China issued the first industry standard for basic standards and materials of supercapacitors. Although China's supercapacitor market started late, in recent years, China's supercapacitor industry has developed rapidly. In 2014, the domestic supercapacitor market was 4.84 billion yuan, an increase of 56.1% over 2013. In 2015, the domestic supercapacitor market reached 6.65 billion yuan, and the demand for supercapacitors in China reached 12.1% of the global market. The Research Institute predicts that the market size of China's supercapacitor industry will increase to 7.1 billion yuan by 2018 and 11 billion yuan by 2020. On the other hand, supercapacitors are not only listed in the national special support key projects, but also selected as "key products of strategic emerging industries".
Supercapacitors are widely used and can effectively achieve the goal of energy saving and environmental protection. With the increase of national policy support and the continuous upgrading of technology, large-scale applications will start rapidly and the plate imagination space is huge.
