Market Dynamics

The EMI shielding material market is growing across the globe due to stringent regulations on EMI emissions by regulatory bodies such as The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) via its International Special Committee on Radio Interference. In addition to this, the growing use of electronic systems in automobiles and healthcare industries, development of 4G/LTE infrastructure, and the increasing demand for next generation integrated electronic circuits are other key factors that are accelerating the market growth.

In the telecommunications industry, EMI shielding materials are primarily being used in communication towers and associated wires and cables, and in server rooms and related instrumentation. EMI shielding materials also help in protecting electronic devices during extreme environmental conditions such as strong winds. The demand for EMI shielding materials is witnessing growth due to the increasing technological development such as smartphones and Internet. A rise in the use of these technologies is further expected to increase the emission of electromagnetic signals. Therefore, it is important that signals do not interfere with each other, which can be ensured by the use of EMI shielding materials.

However, the high cost associated with EMI shielding increases the overall cost of devices. Hence, the selection of right materials plays a very crucial role in the pricing of any electronic/electrical device. EMI shielding materials must be both cost-effective and should comply with emission standards laid down by the European Union under initiatives like Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHs) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). Finally, they should be capable of being safely disposed of or recycled at the end of the product life.
