BCC Research Issues EMI/RFI Study

WELLESLEY, MA | BCC Research is offering a new report entitled EMI/RFI: Materials and Technologies. The objective is to review and analyze electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) problems that are encountered in the operation of electronic equipment and the key implications for plastics and competitive materials and technologies used to suppress that interference.

The company says the report can be used to analyze electronics and other key industries with regard to EMI shielding; trace significant developments, forecast important trends, and quantify the various
market sectors and profiles companies active in EMI/RFI shielding; evaluate EMI suppliers, trade associations, and editors of trade magazines; and discuss the current state of electronics and other related industries, the market for plastics-based shielding options, key participants, shielding technologies, patents, materials, shielding components, global developments, and examples of global regulatory standards and environmental issues confronting the electronic shielding business.

According to the report, the global market for EMI/RFI shielding has grown to nearly $6 billion in 2016 from $5.6 billion in 2015. The market is expected to grow at a 5-yr compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% from 2016 to 2021, increasing to more than $7.8 billion in 2021.

This study provides the following:

  • An overview of the global market for products which deal with EMI and RFI problems that are encountered in the operation of electronic equipment, and implications for those plastics and competitive materials and technologies used to suppress that interference.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2015, estimates for 2016, and projections of CAGRs through 2021.
  • Examinations of issues surrounding the ever-increasing frequencies being encountered along with the proliferation of wireless devices that may result in the shifting of shielding options; in addition, the impact of other technologies, such as Bluetooth, absorptive EMI, fiber optics, and others will be assessed.
  • Analysis of trends in components and devices used in electronics and other industries, such as medical, automotive, and consumer products.
  • Identification of the current state of the electronics and other industries, the market for plastics-based shielding options, key participants, shielding technologies, patents, materials, shielding components, and a “time line” of global developments.
  • Profiles of major players in the industry.

This study is an updated version of the previous EMI/RFI: Materials and Technology report. The report says there are several important differences between the current shielding compared with that of the past, led by the increased number and quality of devices and components requiring shielding. The proliferation of portable electronic devices has also given the industry significant additional challenges.

Report identifies the nature of the EMI/RFI problem, noting the ways that the redesigning of shielding and electronics can overcome these problems. Technologies and materials specific to EMI/RFI shielding are also identified and analyzed for their impact on plastics and other materials within a context of trends in components and devices used in the electronics medical, automotive and consumer products industries.

The study also discusses the current state of the electronics and other related industries, the market for plastics-based shielding options, key participants, shielding technologies, patents, materials, shielding components, global developments, and examples of global regulatory standards and environmental issues confronting the electronic shielding business.

BCC says this report should be of interest to resin manufacturers, plastics compounders, and plastics processors that impact the electronics industry, especially those whose products are neat and/or filled resins.
