By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor (MLCC) Market in China 2015-2019” report to their offering.

MLCCs are the important building blocks in modern electronics and comprise of approximately 30% of the total elements in a typical hybrid circuit module. MLCC consists of a uniform ceramic block with comb-like sintered electrodes.

This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the MLCC market in China during the period 2015-2019. For ascertaining the market size and vendor share, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of MLCC products in China.

The MLCC market in China is witnessing increased investment in R&D by many major companies. The increase in R&D investment is mainly aimed at developing a technological edge over other players in the competitive yet profitable market. For Instance, the Yasu Division of Murata Corporation has functioned as a major R&D center for the development of materials, production, technologies, devices, and manufacturing processes. In the wake of the rapid growth rate of the MLCC market in China, the major players aim to increase their future market share by developing new technologies and safeguarding them through patents. Hence, increased R&D investment is expected to contribute toward the market growth positively during the forecast period.

According to the report, the huge acceptance of MLCC capacitors in comparison to alternate technologies is primarily a result of their excellent reliability record and low cost. The other most opted capacitors are tantalum, polymer, and aluminum electrolyte. MLCCs are usually more effective and robust in their performance involving coupling and decoupling.

Substantial development has been made in the growth of enhanced termination systems to improve MLCC functioning in the electronics equipment segment. FlexiTermTM systems that are polymer-based provide reliability and improved system performance by restricting stresses transferred to MLCCs. The outcome is greater than 2x standard board deflection capability with improved termination technology devices and gives an added advantage in comparison to other capacitors.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges in the market is concern for raw materials.
