Plastic Dielectric Film Consumption Growing: October 2007

Global consumption of plastic dielectric films for the capacitor industry has grown substantially since 2003 according to a new study from Paumanok Publications, Inc. entitled “Plastic Dielectric Films For The Capacitor Industry: 2007-2014 Market Outlook” Demand for polypropylene film which accounts for 55% of 2007 FY dielectric film revenueshas grown in accordance with demand from power factor correction and pulse discharge capacitor manufacturers globally. Additional growth for ultra-thin films (<2.0 microns) manufactured from PPS and PEN film for the rapidly growing film chip capacitor markets is also growing for applications in automotive electronics and . Forecasts to 2014 are robust, especially for polypropylene, due to its use as the preferred dielectric for the DC link capacitor in the Toyota Prius® and in multiple new hybrid electric powertrains for passenger cars and Class 7 and 8 off-road trucks and tractors.
