Electromagnetic interference shielding or EMI shielding is commonly applied to prevent electromagnetic interference from affecting sensitive electronic devices, systems, and equipment that are used for critical applications. The causes of EMI can range from temporary disturbance and system failure to data losses and even loss of life. EMI shields are mechanical devices including flexible metal screens, metal foams, and metal wires, which are generally put around the electronic devices to prevent interference. Other materials such as conductive polymers, conductive coatings & paints, and tapes & laminates are also used in various demanding applications of EMI shielding.
Global EMI shielding market is estimated to be valued at more than US$ 6 billion in 2019, and the growth is likely to be driven by rapid expansion of electronics market and rise in the deployment of electronic systems in numerous industries, especially in automotive sector. Growing need for EMI shielding in these electronic systems to reduce the coupling of radio waves and magnetic waves as well as reduce the unwanted transfer of energy will continue to influence the market growth.
