The EMI shielding Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.29% to reach US$13.078 billion by 2026, from US$7.022 billion in 2019.

EMI Shielding in electronic equipment and devices has been the overall use of different production materials and techniques, intending to protect signals from being disrupted by various types of external electromagnetic signals. EMI shielding has a large implication as the causes of electromagnetic interference are numerous and include both man-made and natural sources which result in temporary disturbances and data losses to system failure and even loss of life. The EMI shield usually absorbs transmitted signals before reaching sensitive circuits on a user’s device. It also keeps clean the protected signal. EMI shielding materials consist of one of three types of metal but come in a variety of forms which are Pre-Tin plated steel, copper alloy 770 / nickel silver, copper, aluminum, EMI shielding gaskets, EMI shielding silicon, and EMI shielding film and foil.

Driving Factors

The primary driver of the industry is the increasing demand of EMI Shielding for consumer electronics which was also the largest share of the market in 2019 owing to the increase in sensor density and automotive industry which has led to the growth of the industry in the forecast period. The rapidly growing IT and Telecom, Healthcare, Aerospace, and defense, Automotive is in turn expected to increase the demand for EMI Shielding materials, which are some of the factors leading to the growth in the industry. The health hazards of electromagnetic radiation are a rising concern, so many governments of different countries have demanded the use of EMI Shielding in different sectors of the industry. In addition, increasing the focus of domestic as well as international players on the development of innovative products, having a wide range of applications are other factors expected to support the growth of the target market over the forecast period. EMI shielding market for conductive coatings & paints has accounted for the largest shares in the market owing to the high demand for EIM shielding as silver, nickel, graphite, silver-coated copper are used as the fillers in conductive coatings and paint. Also, Physical vapor deposition is one of the prime conductive coating applications. One of the prime market shares is held by the radiation method owing to the extensive use of EMI metal shielding to protect the device from EMI radiation.  

Growth Factors

Increasing demand for EMI shielding against EMI radiations and various industries. EMI shielding is commonly used to protect devices from EMI radiations, where metal shielding provides an EMI shielding range of up to 100 dB radiation. It has a wide variety of applications which include devices in hospitals to protect sensitive devices from electromagnetic radiations. Also, it is used in consumer electronics such as mobile phones to protect major chips and PCBs from harmful radiation. The shielding has major application in the field of IT and telecom as servers, base transceiver stations (BTS), routers, Ethernet switches, fax machines, photocopiers, blade servers, and other information technology equipment (ITE) are prone to electromagnetic interference so to protect valuable data EMI shielding are used.


EMI Shielding without EMI Filtering

Most types of high-frequency shielding disruptions and problems are usually caused by various openings in the shield material, and not by failure of the given material. While shielding is a primary option for most EMI-related issues, the issues associated with penetrations through the shielded enclosure, and the Inputs and outputs of the electrical systems. This has been the most and major vulnerable point in a shielded system. A hole in the shielding system at any point can easily lead to catastrophic failure. As the inputs and outputs are known as the weakest points associated with the shielded enclosures, these are known to be the major vulnerable areas and locations.

Impact of COVID-19 on the EMI Shielding Market

COVID-19 pandemic has had a big impact on the industries, although a few industries will register a drop in demand, numerous others will continue to remain unaffected and show promising growth opportunities. The impact is varied but the COVID-19 impact on the EIM Shielding market has been vast from challenges such as supply chain disruption, demand fluctuations, other pressing concerns during 2020, but the industry has been looking forward to their long-term strategies to emerge stronger in the post-COVID pandemic scenario. Various companies have been revising and changing their strategies through the modification of the composition of product portfolios, R&D strategies, investment in various expenditures, and other related growth areas. The year 2020 has been a bit tough on the industry from low demand than the previous years but the post covid 19 recovery shows big growth in the EMI Shielding market. EMI Shielding companies will have to formulate long-term plans, evaluate potential scenarios, and re-orient both strategies and operations to emerging market trends through constant monitoring of industry shifts and geopolitical responses.
