Power capacitors form a small part of the electrical equipment industry in India. Their use is indispensable in the energy efficient systems as it is helps to reduce the overall power factor (PF) of the system. It is a cheaper product as compared to the other electrical equipments and with growing energy efficiency needs, its use and demand is rising rapidly. A cumulative growth in the Indian power sector is providing a fillip to the market. Growth in industrial sector is giving rise to demand for capacitors especially low tension capacitors. The application of capacitors is increasing across industries to save energy. Majority of it is supplies to the state electricity boards, DISCOMS and utilities in India. In order to meet the growing power generation capacities in India, power capacitors are likely to register a rapid growth in the future. Exports of the same are increasing rapidly to countries like China, Germany, Turkey and Spain.
