EMI and RFI Shielding Materials and Technologies
The global market for EMI and RFI Shielding Materials and Technologies is forecast to reach US$9 billion by 2024, driven by the rise in electromagnetic pollution caused by the explosive growth of mobile wireless communications and the resulting need to protect digital equipment from unwanted radio-frequency interference.

Also driving growth in the market include:
  • popularity of complex stacked chip package structures and multi-chip packages that increase sensitivity of next-generation electronic systems to EMI;
  • growing demand for fail-proof and reliable electronics in the current digital era;
  • cutting edge developments in shielding materials such as polymer matrix nanocomposites, carbon nanotubes, graphene and intrinsically conducting polymers;
  • emerging new uses in electronic displays and photovoltaics (PV) in the form of EMI shielding conductive coatings;
  • growing demand for next-generation integrated electronic circuits;
  • increased burden of compliance with EMC regulations;
  • and lower tolerance to equipment failures in the era of Internet of Things (IoT).
