Report Highlights

Global demand for EMI/RFI shielding options is estimated at about $4.5 billion in 2011 and is expected to increase to $5.2 billion by 2016, a projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.8%.

Published - Jun-2007| Analyst - Melvin Schlechter| Code - PLS005H

Report Highlights

  • Demand for EMI/RFI shielding options is estimated to have been about $725 million in 2006 and is expected to marginally increase to only $745 million by 2012. This forecasted low growth is due primarily to ever increasing activity offshore, especially China.
  • Major shielding options include metal cabinets, conductive coatings, conductive plastics/elastomers, laminates/tapes, and a widely diverse "miscellaneous" category.
  • Metal cabinets will show the strongest growth of 5.6%/year due to several factors led by increased use of higher frequencies. They should reach a value of $182 million by 2012. Many of the other EMI/RFI shielding types are undergoing modest growth.

Published - Jul-2003| Analyst - Melvin Schlechter| Code - PLS005G

Report Highlights

  • Demand in the U.S. for EMI/RFI shielding options was estimated at more than $500 million in 2002 and, rising at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 3.2%, is expected to exceed $600 million by 2008.
  • Conductive coatings represent the largest market segment, but will grow at an AAGR of only 2.2% to $267 million in 2008.
  • Metal cabinets are the second largest segment, and will grow at an AAGR of 4.8% through the period to $267 million.
  • The $15 million laminate tape market also will rise at a 4.8% AAGR.
  • Conductive plastics and tapes will not see significant growth through 2008.
