EMI/RFI: Materials and Technologies
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%.
SCOPE AND FORMAT
The size and the growth of the global market for EMI/RFI shielding products is a function of several factors. Shielding not only closely follows the demand for electronic devices and components but also is a valuable resource to assist manufacturers in complying with ever-changing safety and performance regulations. Consequently, the study summarizes the somewhat muddled global regulatory environment.
The overview identifies the nature of the EMI/RFI problem, noting how shielding and electronics redesign can, in some instances, overcome these problems. Technologies and materials specific to EMI/RFI shielding are identified and analyzed for their impact on plastics and other materials within a context of trends in components and devices used in the electronics and other industries such as medical, automotive, and consumer products.
The report begins with an understanding of the issues involved, current state of the electronics and other industries, market for plastics-based shielding options, key participants, shielding technologies, patents, materials, shielding components, a “time line” of global developments, and worldwide regulatory and standards environment for electronic shielding.
Compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) are provided by square feet and 2011 dollars. An analysis based on volume is not feasible because of the many disparate shielding products.

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.
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.
