Electromagnetic And Radio Frequency Interference Coating Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Application, By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2021 To 2028

The global electromagnetic and radio frequency interference coating market growth is attributable to the challenges associated with electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) in electronic and related devices, which affect their performance.

The existing environment is prone to EMI/RFI as cellphone, WIFI transmitters, and radios infuse space with different types of signals. Additionally, there are many sources of radio noise including electrical processes in the atmosphere such lightening, thermal noise made by receiver circuits and manmade RFI. As devices become smaller, they are more vulnerable to EMI/RFI because distance between circuits reduces. This creates a challenging environment for engineers; thus, it has become very important to regulate and prevent the EMI/RFI.

Electronic devices emits both magnetic and electrical energy by means of radiation and conduction, but there are some forms of energy or waves which can create critical impact on the functionality of devices. This effect is known as electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI). EMI/RFI causes malfunctioning of electronic devices, specifically creates suppression of signals internally within devices.

Challenges associated with EMI/RFI includes distortion of video and audio signals, overheating & fires, difficulty in establishing wireless connections, interference with control & monitoring equipment and devices, and general technological difficulties and malfunctions. Thus, it is very important to use EMI shielding to avoid such malfunctioning devices.

Electromagnetic and radio frequency interference coating market is projected to grow on account of increasing demand for EMI shielding, which protects the device from outgoing and incoming radiations. Various types of coatings or inks are sprayed on plastic enclosures surrounding the device, which needs to be protected in order to absorb harmful EMI/RFI.

EMI enclosures found applications in mobile phone housing, central processing units, circuit board housings, and many other electronic and telecommunication devices. Some of the devices which are vulnerable to EMI includes medical devices, computers, GPS systems, Wi-Fi routers, smartphones, walkie-talkies, baby monitors, broadcast television and AM & FM radio.

Metal inks and coatings containing silver, chromium, copper and nickel, etc. can be sprayed on any housing or material to create effect of EMI shielding. Increasing R&D on different ink materials and coatings is projected to provide numerous opportunities for market vendors. For instance, in September 2017, Henkel launched 2 metal inks for EMI shielding applications. These inks can provide shielding effectiveness as pure metals and can be used for in semiconductor packaging applications.

On the basis of application, The market is categorized into electronics, telecommunications, medical, aerospace & defense, automotive and others. Electronics is projected to remain the fastest growing segment on the account of rising penetration of internet and proliferation of smartphones, tablets and laptops.

North America is projected to remain one of the largest regional electromagnetic and radio frequency interference coating market over the coming years. The demand in the region is projected to rise on the account of expansion of semiconductor and related industries, rapid development of electric vehicle sector, increasing expenditure in aerospace & defense sector and R&D investments by EMI/RFI coating players.

Global market for electromagnetic and radio frequency interference coating is projected to witness increasing competition over the coming years. The players in the market are investing in R&D in order to expand and commercialize their product portfolio. For instance, in June 2019, PPG Industries, Inc. launched EMI/RFI material known as PPG TESLIN EMI/RF for EMI shielding applications.

The PPG shielding material is coated with PPG produced conductive inks and can be customized on the basis of client requirements. The material can be used for applications such as electronic passports, cell phones, circuit boards, credit cards, antennas, actuated chips, grounding tapes and electronic toll passes.

In October 2020, Nanotech Energy Inc. introduced a new product line for EMI shielding applications. The company launched six products based on graphene material, wherein all products provide EMI shielding and protect the malfunctioning devices. Out of six one product is Elite Armour Paint, a conductive paint made using copper and silver for thin coating applications.

Some of the vendors in global market include MG Chemicals, PARKER HANNIFIN CORP, OPTICA, Nanotech Energy Inc., PPG Industries, Inc., Henkel AG, Electroninks, Sono-Tek Corporation, ANP Materials, AFT FLUOROTEC LIMITED and MASTERBOND among others.
