Electromagnetic shielding is typically applied to enclosures to isolate electrical devices from their surroundings space by blocking the field with barriers made of conductive or magnetic materials. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can disrupt electronic devices, equipment, and systems that are used in critical applications like healthcare, military, aerospace etc. Silicone based electromagnetic shielding are gaining major traction due to elastomeric nature which provide ease of fabrication in gasket form, resistant to sunlight & water and wide range of operating temperature.

Market Dynamics:-

Major drivers to silicone electromagnetic shielding market is acceleration in the deployment of 4G/LTE infrastructure and growth in the sale of consumer electronics like mobile, tablets etc. As per India Brand Equity Foundation report 2018, current India’s mobile subscriber stand at 560 million in 2018 and expected to reach 1.42 billion by 2024 in which 1 billion would be smartphone users and about 80% among them is expected to use 4G/LTE network.

Growing applications of electronics component in automobile is also the major growth factor of the silicone electromagnetic shielding material market. Electric Vehicles are also gaining major traction over petrol & diesel operated due to raising concern for global warming and climate change. Silicone electromagnetic shielding of electronic components of vehicle become necessary to prevent them from damage and malfunctioning due to external radiation interference. As per International Energy Agency 2018 report, the global electric vehicle sale stood at 1.1 million in 2017 and expected to reach 220 million by 2030.

Major restraint to silicone electromagnetic shielding material market is the high cost associated with it.

Market Outlook:-

The EMI shielding market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2018 to 2026 owing to the factors such as the escalating demand for consumer electronic products such as smartphones, tablets, and home appliances and development of advanced cellular infrastructure. As per GSM Association Intelligence 2018, smartphone subscribers in Asia Pacific region stood at 1.4 billion in 2017 which is expected to reach 3.9 billion by 2025.
