1. Introduction


Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitors (MLCCs) are small size ceramic capacitors that are
mainly used to filter ripple voltages. These electronic components have low impedance and
are highly reliable. These MLCC components are composed of alternating layers of dielectric
material and inner electrodes, while the terminal electrodes form the main body of the
capacitor.




Ceramic Capacitors do not have any polarity, and the dielectric medium is made of materials
such as titanium acid barium. When a potential difference is applied between the two
electrodes in a ceramic capacitor, it gets charged. However, once fully charged, it blocks the
flow of current. Thus, capacitors are used as filters to block DC (Direct Current) and allow
the passage of AC (Alternating Current) through them. A Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor
(MLCC) is composed of alternating layers of dielectric material (ceramic in case of MLCC)
present between two sets of internal electrodes (placed alternately in the capacitor body)
and the terminal electrodes. These MLCC units are relatively small in size, have good
temperature and frequency characteristics, and are used to bypass high frequency
components to the ground. Thus, these capacitors find their application in digital circuits
(which use square wave signals) in computers, telecommunication devices, data processors
and instrumentation devices. With increasing market for Smart Phones, Notebooks, and
other consumer electronic devices, the demand for MLCC components is rising rapidly.



The APAC region occupies more than 70 percent of the Global MLCC market, with China
being one of the leaders. However, the market of MLCC is also facing some challenges due
to the existing labor issues in the Chinese market. Chinese labors (coming from inland
China), who lost their jobs in the 2008-09 recession, are now refusing to join back the
electronic component factories which are situated at the coastal regions. This has created
a huge supply crunch in the Global MLCC market and the prices of many MLCC components
have increased considera
