 Global EMI Shielding Market Definition 

Electromagnetic interface (EMI) shielding is a process that is used for absorption of the electromagnetic radiation by being positioned in the middle of electromagnetic fields. This technique of creating a barrier that prevents leakage of a strong electromagnetic field interferes with sensitive devices and signals and helps in increasing the durability of most electronics along with enhancing the performance of the circuit. Using conductive or magnetic barriers also minimizes corrosion and oxidation and prevents the electromagnetic field inside a physical field. It entails screening through conductive coatings, metals, and laminates consisting of copper, aluminum, and stainless steel to capture EMI that is carried through the air.

The transmission of signals from one system to another is known as electromagnetic interference (EMI). An EMI is comprised of three parts- the source, the path, and the receiver. The source and receiver are the two systems. The source is usually the external circuit or phenomenon that generates the interruption, which might be natural consisting of lightning, auroras, cosmic microwave background, and solar radiation. The interruption can be man-made comprising cellular networks, radio waves, power transmission lines, measurement, and control devices.

There are mainly two types of EMI shielding referred to as broadband EMI and narrowband EMI. Narrowband EMI happens within a specific frequency range or even a single frequency. This EMI is generated by radios, television stations, and cell phones. It might happen on an intermittent or constant basis. This sort of EMI, while disruptive, does not damage equipment, whereas broadband EMI, which arises over a larger range and can affect electronic devices. Broadband EMI can be triggered by a vehicle, an automobile ignition, faulty fluorescent lights, malfunctioning power lines, or a jet engine. EMI shielding has a wider scope in various industries. In the healthcare sector, EMI shielding is utilized in various kinds of medical devices to avoid equipment failure or anomalies resulting from electrical, magnetic, or radiofrequency signal interference, enhancing patient safety and lowering healthcare expenses.
