Inflation and Looming Recession to Haunt Businesses:

In 2022 & 2023, market players expected to sail in rough waters; might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain. Further, U.S. economy is expected to grow merely by 3% in 2022. Purchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%.
On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.

Global Automotive Shielding Market Definition

The method of protecting automotive components with the help of heat-insulating materials is known as automotive shielding. Heat shields are used to protect the vehicle body against excessive heat generated by the engine and exhaust systems. It keeps an automobile’s 400-degree muffler from setting fire and from setting fire to the contents of the trunk. The muffler may be pretty close to the underside of the trunk, shielding wraps around the muffler and, depending on the car. Automotive shielding is applied to vehicle enclosures and cables.

Global Automotive Shielding Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand for Electric Vehicles – where electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing inevitably requires installing electronic systems in confined spaces and also needs to refrain the electromagnetic energy generated from these systems from “crosstalking” and causing malfunctions and failures. As EMI shielding is important for EVs, the surge in the demand for EVs is expected to boost the automotive shielding market in the forecasted period. It was found that the global sales of EVs were over 3 million units in 2020 which was more than 4% of global vehicle sales.

  • Increasing Sales of Battery Charger – for instance, the battery charger sales value worldwide reached around USD 21 billion in 2018.

  • Growing Penetration of Automotive Radars - which will reach nearly 65% in Europe by 2030.

  • Rising Trend of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technologyit was found that there were more than 25000 such vehicles registered worldwide in 2020.

  • Surge in the Demand for Automotive Electronicsas it is projected that by 2030, electronics will make up approximately 50% of a cost of a new car.


  • Design Complexity – designing a shield that meets the needs of modern vehicles can become costly manufacturer if the task is delayed. The major challenge in engineering an EMI shield is knowing when the shield is needed—EMI signals, which always need to be prioritized at the beginning of the design process, as working retroactively to create a suitable solution may be expensive.

  • Risk of Product Failure

  • Unsatisfactory Sound Absorption Performance by the Conventional Panel

The global automotive shielding market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by vehicle type segment into passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles. Amongst these segments, the passenger cars segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2033, backed by the growing demand for cars worldwide and the rising demand for heat shields to protect the vehicle body against excessive heat. It was found that the auto industry in United States sold more than 3 million cars in 2021.

Global Automotive Shielding Market Regional Synopsis

The Asia Pacific automotive shielding market, amongst the market in all the other regions, is projected to hold the largest market share by the end of 2033, backed by a growing number of installed bases of global navigation satellite system (GNSS) devices and rising awareness amongst the automobile manufacturers for electromagnetic interference (EMI) sourced by the navigation system. It was found that Asia Pacific region leads the way in the usage of the navigation system, as it accounted for ~900 million GNSS devices in 2021.
