EMI-RFI Materials and Technologies

December 13, 2012


Wellesley, Mass. – According to a new technical market research report, EMI/RFI MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGIES (PLS005K), from BCC Research (www.bccresearch.com), the global market for EMI/RFI shielding is expect to reach nearly $5.1 billion in 2012 and $5.2 billion in 2013. Total market valued is expected to reach nearly $6 billion in 2018 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.9%.

The global EMI/RFI shielding market can be broken down into several methods, including: conductive coating, metal cabinets, conductive plastics, laminates/tapes/foils, and miscellaneous methods.

The segment made up of conductive coatings methods is expected to have a value of $1.9 billion in 2013 and $2.1 billion in 2018, a CAGR of 2%.

The metal cabinets’ method should be valued at $776 million in 2013 and $906 million in 2018, a CAGR of 3.1%.

The method using conductive plastics is expected to reach $520 million in 2013 and $609 million in 2018, a CAGR of 3.2%.

As a segment, laminates, tapes and foils should reach a value of $228 million in 2013 and $275 million in 2018, a CAGR of 3.8%.


Growth rates, best measured by overall coverage in square feet, are fairly uniform and are slightly above 3% per year, with the exception of conductive coatings due to several factors led by increased use of higher frequencies. There are some environmental and cost issues due to the use of electroless plating and vacuum metallization along with conductive paints, which are components of the conductive coatings segment.

There are thousands of companies involved in the EMI/RFI shielding business, many of which specialize in very specific areas such as gaskets, metal cabinets, conductive paints, electroless plating, vacuum metallization, etc.

Some of the more prominent firms in the overall electromagnetic compliance business  include Chomerics North America, Coilcraft, Cybershield, Enthrone-OMI, ETS-Lindgren, Ferronics, Laird Technologies, Majr Products, The MuShield Co., Panashield,  Schlegel Systems, Shieldex Trading, Tech-Etch, and Tecknit.
