Supercapacitors will be a large market. It will interest suppliers of a wide range of specialty chemicals and added value feedstock. The report, "Supercapacitor Materials and Technology Roadmap 2019-2039" uniquely appraises these and identifies gaps in the market for device variants and new material capabilities. The report notes that lithium-ion batteries were a cottage industry but as they became a large market added value materials companies prospered from making key materials that the device makers could not address. That is ahead for supercapacitors now.
The growth of the supercapacitor business is being be accelerated by new priorities driven by a wider range of potentially large applications and optimisation of new matched materials. That stretches from structural supercapacitors to ones maximising pseudocapacitance for battery-like functions and others replacing general purpose electrolytic capacitors. Many transition metal oxides and other compounds from liquids to ceramics are now in focus.
"Supercapacitor Materials and Technology Roadmap 2019-2039" is a drill down report from the IDTechEx report, "Supercapacitor Markets and Technology 2018-2028". It is part of the acclaimed IDTechEx series on energy storage and on battery elimination.
The new virtuosity is astounding. Some experimental supercapacitors now work from minus 110C to 300C. Power supply versions at 120 Hz are demonstrated. On the other hand, load-bearing supercapacitors are sometimes achieving lighter weight than the dumb structure they replace. Batteries make things heavier but supercapacitors make them lighter - "negative mass" energy storage? Supercapacitor materials just got exciting.
The 180 page IDTechEx report, "Supercapacitor Materials and Technology Roadmap 2019-2039" involves over 60 organisations through the value chain. It has a comprehensive Executive Summary and Conclusions for those with limited time. The many parameters affecting latest competition between capacitors, supercapacitors and batteries are clearly grasped in new spider diagrams and charts. New infograms give the wider applications being targeted, the methods, the materials parameters being optimised and the most promising routes, including much news for 2018 and potential for the future.
There is a materials market forecast and technology timeline. Learn gaps in the market and prioritisation of parameter improvement now needed. The Introduction comprehensively explains the phenomena being optimised and the different structures emerging for supercapacitors and their variants. Learn why pseudocapacitance is becoming better understood and used as a tool in device tailoring. Why are both hierarchical electrode morphologies and the newer exohedral options needed at the different electrodes required for different potential applications? There is no one size fits all. Indeed, electrode-electrolyte matching is essential with aqueous and ionic electrolytes in focus and solid state considered. See detailed charts comparing parameters achieved.
Chapter 3 explores electrolytes as they change radically to new organic and inorganic, liquid and solid forms, with present and planned commercial versions and the new active electrodes they leverage. Why are aqueous and ionic forms gaining market share?
Chapter 4 covers the changing priorities in transition metal oxides and introduces metal organic frameworks. Chapter 5 covers the new approach to 2D materials with graphene very important but only a part of the story, which now embraces MXenes and much more.
Chapter 6 specifically addresses applied versions of graphene, carbon nanotubes and carbon aerogels, the aerogels even enabling impressive load-bearing components. Chapter 7 appraises the important work on structural supercapacitors - load bearing shapes, smart skin, textiles and even paper structures. Learn about stretchable and flexible forms and more. The report closes with a chapter on how poisons will be avoided in future supercapacitors. Throughout, the text is brought alive with commercial and promised device examples and slides from the latest relevant conferences. They reveal how other global experts see progress, mechanisms and future possibilities.
