About the Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitor (MLCC) Market
An MLCC is a monolithic device with laminated layers of ceramic dielectric materials, scattered with the metal electrode system. The layers are exposed to high temperature to make a sintered and efficient capacitance device. A conducive barrier system is integrated with the exposed ends of the chip to complete the linking.
MLCCs are categorized on the following bases:
- Rated voltage: The rated voltage can be between 4 volts and 10 kilovolts, with the most common being 16-volt, 25-volt, 50-volt, or 100-volt capacitors.
- Capacitance: The most common values for capacitance are 10 nanofarads, 100 nanofarads, and 1 microfarad.
- Case size or dimension
- Packaging type
Technavio's analysts forecast the global MLCC market to grow at a CAGR of 2.79% during the period 2016-2020.
