Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing measures the ability of equipment or systems to function satisfactorily in their electromagnetic environment without introducing intolerable electromagnetic disturbance to anything in that environment.
COVID-19 scenario analysis:
COVID-19 has impacted almost all industries across the world by disrupting the supply chain and hindering various industrial operations. Most companies have halted their manufacturing activities or have reduced it to the bare minimum.
COVID-19-responsive measures undertaken by governments, such as lockdown and social distancing, led to the closure of manufacturing plants in the initial stage of the pandemic. With very few industrial operations allowed, consumer electronics and automotive industries are experiencing a decline in demand for products. The aforementioned factors have affected the market for EMC test equipment as very few new EMC shielding solutions as well as test equipment are expected to be used by these industries during the ongoing crisis.
Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis
Computers, smartphones, tablets, and laptops are some of the electronic
appliances that are widely used by common people for different purposes,
including communication, entertainment, and official work. Factors such as
voice-assisted personal infotainment systems, rising adoption of electronic
appliances in vehicles, an increasing number of smartphones, the influence
of artificial intelligence, and the upcoming deployment of 5G cellular
networks largely support the growth of consumer electronics worldwide.
Consumer electronic devices create EMI. With the proliferation of electronic
devices such as computers, mobile phones, and navigation systems across
the world, EMC is becoming an increasingly important concern. The need for
EMC is further fuelled by factors such as the high potential for emissions
due to fluctuating supply voltages, increasing clock frequencies, faster slew
rates, and increasing packaging density as well as high demand for smaller,
lighter, cheaper, and low-power devices. This has resulted in the emergence
of several directives and regulations in favour of EMC solutions and their
providers. Reliable EMI protection contributes significantly toward assuring
machine reliability, thereby providing a useful selling proposition for the
manufacturers of electric systems and machines.
However, due to its heavyweight and high cost as well as susceptibility
toward environmental degradation, it is not preferred as an EMC shielding
agent in current electronic devices. While polymeric composite materials are
lighter in weight and cheaper to manufacture, they lack inherent EMC
The cost of EMC solutions generally includes the cost of testing the
compliance according to the defined standards of several processes such as
cleaning, loading and unloading, and masking. This additional cost
increases the overall cost of the end product. Many electronic product
manufacturers take EMC into consideration at the design stage and then
manufacture products that will comply with the requirements of the target
market. If manufacturers could not achieve the desired EMC solution, they
need to go for different solutions to make their product compliant with the
target market without affecting the product design. This will further increase
the final cost of the product and extend its time to market. Thus, the
exorbitant costs of electromagnetic compatibility hinder its market growth.
Electric vehicles are of three main types, battery electric vehicles (BEVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).
Against the backdrop of growing environmental concerns and government
support, electric two-wheelers, three-wheelers, and buses are witnessing
huge traction these days.
Power converters, electric motors, shielded and unshielded cables, wireless
chargers, and batteries are the key components of a typical electric drive
system and are subject to EMI and electromagnetic radiation. Wireless
charging for electric vehicles has become increasingly popular in the recent
past. Unlike internal combustion engine-based vehicles, some electric
vehicles emit more electromagnetic waves in the charging mode than in the
driving mode. The power required by the electric drive system is much
higher than the power required for the whole electric system in conventional
cars. Other attributes such as weight, size, and the emitted noise of an
electric vehicle requires specialized EMI materials. Thus, the growth of the
electric vehicle market is expected to create an avenue for the growth of the
electromagnetic compatibility market.
