Report Description

The global EMI Shielding market was stood around $6 billion in 2020 and is expected to demonstrate the growth of ~5% during the forecast period (2021-2027).
EMI shielding has become an important part of many industries with the increasing penetration of equipment’s which emits radio wave radiation. Radio wave and microwave radiation is emitted by all electronic devices, particularly those that operate in the radio wave and microwave range of frequencies. Since, the radiation interferes with electronics, due to the interaction of the electrons in the metal conductors with the electric field in the radiation. The interference can cause the electronics to malfunction. Therefore, as adoption of devices which involves radio wave and microwave are increasingly abundant, shielding materials are increasingly needed for both radiation sources and electronics. For instance, the worldwide sales of smartphone rose to 1,541 million units in 2019 from 297 million units in 2010. This rapid growth in smartphone market has increased the demand for EMI shielding materials.

However, 2020 was a negative year for the industry due to COVID-19 because of the stringent measures taken by the governments across the globe such as implementation of subsequent lockdown in order to curtail the spread of disease which has resulted in the shutdown of industries. Furthermore, change in consumer sentiment is also affected the market. People are spending income mainly on essential things resulted in the drop in consumer electronics sales. In addition, shortage of semiconductor across the globe in 2021 has affected the industrial production activities. Several companies including automotive announced the reduction in automobiles production. All these factors had a negative impact on the market.
