EMI Shielding Market

Analyst Perspective:

Electronic devices are becoming increasingly compact, with greater functionality contained in smaller volumes. Researchers are focusing on mounting integrated circuits (ICs) and other components, such as antennas, closer together, even within the same semiconductor package. Such proximity renders conventional board-level shielding of electromagnetic interference (EMI) with metal enclosures inadequate. Hence, they are being replaced with package-level shielding, with metallic coatings applied directly to semiconductor packages. Conformal package-level shielding is necessitated for consumer devices, including smartphones, smartwatches, and augmented reality (AR)/ virtual reality (VR) headsets. At present, sputtering is the most favored method of creating conformal shields in the EMI shielding market. The deposition process involves firing ions at a metallic 'sputtering target' in a vacuum chamber to produce nanoscale metal particles. These particles coat the package surface and act as a barrier to EMI. While the capital equipment is expensive, the metallic sputtering targets are cost-effective, with many providers having existing systems installed. Up to 120 dB is deemed to be an exceptional protection rating, and 60-90 dB is considered high protection. In comparison, anything below 30 dB is considered the lowest effective rating for EMI or RFI shielding. Attenuation levels for the EMI shield can also be determined, although the testing procedure is complex.

Emerging methods such as spray coating and printing are gaining traction and have been covered in the EMI shielding market analysis. These methods offer much lower equipment costs as no vacuum chamber is required. They additionally offer extra benefits such as reduced variation in package top and side coating thickness and fewer process steps. Hence, researchers are focusing on developing EMI-shielded composites using the above-discussed emerging methods. EMI-shielded composites are required in a host of applications, including battery enclosures for automotive and aerospace, wherein EMI could interfere with the operation of the aircraft, device, or vehicle, eventually compromising security and control. Innovative, conductive, nonwoven materials that provide a solution to such challenges are being designed. They possess a combination of properties that make them highly flexible, infusible, lightweight, and an effective EMI shield. Such a combination provides them an advantage over traditional substrates such as films, foils, and paints since it allows them to overcome challenges in both application and process. The EMI shielding market forecast accounts for all such upcoming methods and applications.

EMI Shielding Market


EMI is the disruption of signal from one source by another source's signal. Interference over radio frequencies is the most prevalent type in the electromagnetic spectrum. Energy radiated by circuits, lamps, lighting, power lines, and even engines and motors causes this interference. EMI can be classified into broadband EMI and narrow-band EMI. Broadband EMI appears over a broader spectrum as it uses a large part of the electromagnetic spectrum and can be observed when a device with a digital link is used. Narrow-band EMI is prevalent in mobile phones, radios, and TV stations because it occurs over a discrete frequency. The proliferation of communication systems and electronic devices has led to an extraordinary rise in electromagnetic radiation. While such advancement has revolutionized various industries and enabled seamless connectivity, it has also led to heightened concerns pertaining to potential health risks and interference with sensitive electronic equipment. Electromagnetic shielding is thus a critical technology to safeguard against unwanted EMI.
