Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Automotive Shielding Market size is anticipated to cross USD 32 Billion by the end of 2033, witnessing around 4% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of automotive shielding was USD 21 Billion. The growth of the market can primarily be attributed to the growing demand for vehicles worldwide with the rising need to prevent vehicles from damage and malfunction. Also, the increased production rate of vehicles and rising focus on manufacturing fuel-efficient vehicles are anticipated to impetus significant revenue generation. It was found that there were about 80 million motor vehicles produced worldwide in 2021, with a rise of 3% from 2020.

Automotive shielding reduces the coupling of radio waves (RF shielding) and blocks electromagnetic and electrostatic fields from interfering with other electronic systems and devices. Rapid industrialization and the rising number of automobiles globally along with high prioritization for engine-efficient, light-weighting vehicles for abiding by the standards of fuel efficiency worldwide are estimated to propel the global automotive shielding market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the escalation in preference for electronic systems inside a vehicle and the adoption of technologically advanced systems increases the risk of creating strong electromagnetic fields which affect human health and cause inference and cross-connection of systems causing malfunctions. This trend is anticipated to bring in the need for the automotive shield which in turn, thus, helps in market expansion. In addition to the aforementioned factors, as a result of the surge in stringent emission control regulations by the government, automotive OEMs are compelled to reduce engine size, apply protective shields, and install high-efficient systems to enhance the driving experience and lower fuel consumption. This factor is projected to create a positive outlook for market growth in the forecast period.

Automotive Shielding Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand for Electric Vehicles – 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 “cross talking” 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 Production and Sales of Vehicles – The International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), released global sales of vehicle statistics which revealed that it rose to 56 million in 2021 from 53 million in 2020. Whereas, the global production of vehicles was calculated to be 57 million in 2021.

  • Growing Penetration of Automotive Radars – It is estimated that the utilization rate of automotive radars is anticipated to reach nearly 65% in Europe and 50% in the United States by 2030.

  • Rising Trend of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology – Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) are powered by hydrogen and manufactured using the latest technology. Thus, the integration of advanced systems is generating the need for automotive shields to protect the vehicle from malfunctions. It was found that there were more than 25,000 hydrogen fuel cell road vehicles registered worldwide in 2020.

  • The Surge in the Demand for Automotive Electronics – With the rising spending capacity, individuals are propelled towards adopting technologically advanced electronic systems in vehicles. As these electrical components control various electrical and mechanical functions in a vehicle, sometimes interference and cross-connections happen between the systems leading to malfunctions. Thus, to handle complex electronic circuitry, automotive shields are required. Thus, the higher integration of electronics in vehicles is estimated to bring lucrative growth opportunities for market growth.          For instance, it is projected that by 2030, electronics will make up approximately 50% of a cost of a new car worldwide.


  • High Cost of Maintaining Automotive Shields – Generally, automotive shielding is manufactured through metals and other composite materials. High-quality metals and alloys are used in producing automotive shields to increase the shelf life and durability of automotive shielding. However, owing to constant exposure to heating and harsh environments, the efficiency of automotive shields reduces in a short period of time. This brings the need for frequent repair and maintenance of automotive shields which subsequently increases the cost.
  • Risk of Product Failure
  • Rising Concerns Related to the Complexity of Development of Automotive Shielding Components
