EMI & RFI Shielding Materials Market Trends




  • Increased demand for consumer electronics is driving the market growth




The market for EMI & RFI shielding materials is anticipated to develop in the future due to the rising demand for consumer electronics. Any electronic device intended for end users, or consumers, to buy and use for daily, non-commercial, or professional purposes is considered a consumer electronic. EMI & RFI shielding is the use of manufacturing procedures and materials to protect signals from external electromagnetic signals and generated signals interfering with surrounding components in electronic devices and equipment. Flat-screen displays, desktop, laptop, server computers, and portable electronic devices like GPS receivers and cell phones employ EMI & RFI shielding in consumer electronics. For instance, the US consumer electronics industry's sales are anticipated to reach a record $505 billion in 2022, according to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), a US-based standard-setting and trading organization. According to the projections, sales will climb by 2.8% in 2021 compared to the remarkable 9.6% growth over 2020. In addition, high-tech products accounted for 18% of all exports and 19% of all imports into the EU in 2021, according to Eurostat, a directorate general of the European Commission based in the UK. The sale of high-tech products also increased from €258 billion ($274 billion) in 2011 to €368 billion ($293 billion) in 2021. As a result, the market CAGR for EMI & RFI shielding materials is expanding due to the rising demand for consumer electronics.


Furthermore, the market for EMI & RFI shielding materials is seeing a rise in the importance of product innovation. Major EMI & RFI shielding materials industry players are concentrating on creating cutting-edge solutions to improve their competitiveness. For instance, in March 2021, V Technical Textiles, Inc. (VTT), a US manufacturer of RF/EMI shielding and conductive textile products, and Seaman Corporation, a US plastic fabrication company that produces fabrics and membrane products, jointly launched Shelter-Rite RF. This novel new product offers technologically superior safety and security in situations that call for a more robust and durable RF shielded material. These lightweight RF shielding materials can now be used in settings where they were previously unworkable thanks to this high-performance PVC-coated textile. Thus, driving the EMI & RFI shielding materials market revenue.


EMI & RFI Shielding Materials Market Segment Insights
