Market Overview

EMC, i.e. electromagnetic compatibility is the characteristics that do not only prevents electronic devices from releasing electromagnetic noises (radio interference) but also enhances durability of the devices by avoiding malfunctions and performance deterioration stemming from the noises. In Japan, ever since a series of malfunctions occurred and gathered attention as a serious environmental problem in 1980s, tighter regulations have been imposed. In recent years, as development of electronic devices that use higher frequency microwaves and millimeter waves than conventional ones (i.e. 5G-compliant products, millimeter-wave radars, and IoT products) in addition to that of higher-density digital circuits accompanying lower-voltage power sources for ICs and higher operation speed have been accelerated, EMC and noise-suppression solutions have been increasingly needed.

Global market size of EMC and noise suppression, which is the total 5 markets consisting of 16 products based on the shipment value at manufacturers, attained 3,759,900 million yen in 2019. The market kept its stable growth, though the growth rate was not so far as remarkable. The breakdown of the market for 2019 was as follows: Major capacitors market occupied the largest share at 55.6%, followed by the EMC/noise filters market (22.4%). The market used to associate with the number of electronic devices produced, but as smartphones that had once boasted overwhelming production volume started declining, emerge of 5G-related devices became the strong application to drive the market.

Increased installation into 5G-related applications has been prominent within the near-field solutions market. The following new demands have been rising, though not yet large at this point: High-performance electromagnetic shielding for packaged semiconductors/modules, and liquid materials for magnetic shielding that are said to require highly advanced technology.

Due to Increasing Demand for Small Anechoic Chambers for Automotive Devices, Far-Field Solutions Market Expected to Grow

The highest growth rate expected among the five markets of EMC and noise suppression solutions from 2019 to 2023 is far-field solutions, with 147.8% of the size of 2019 expected in 2023. In the far-field solutions market, anechoic chambers, especially those for automotive devices, are increasingly in demand.

As domestic production of consumer electronic appliances such as mobile terminals and liquid crystal TVs rapidly decreased since 2010, the domestic anechoic chambers market, a part of the far-field solutions market, had been in a diminishing tendency. On the other hand, sudden expansion in the development and production of electronic devices in China and other Asian countries brought about a steep upturn in demand for anechoic chambers. In particular, the market in China expanded extremely, as high-value anechoic chambers for OTA (Over the Air) testing drove the entire market which was associated with permeation of LTE smartphones, while the demand for OTA-test chambers was limited in Japan. As a result, the Chinese anechoic chamber market has come to occupy more than 50% of the global market. This allowed major American makers that preceded the Chinese market with their OTA-test chambers, to increase their sales, together with French and German counterparts.

Future Outlook

The global market size of EMC and noise suppression solutions for 2023, based on shipment values at makers, is likely to generate 4,364,500 million yen, 116.1% of the size of 2019, continuing the steady growth. The growth factors for all five markets can be acceleration in the development of the solutions for 5G-compliant products, IoT devices and also automotive components that have been more and more digitized. Especially, new demand in electronic devices using microwave- or millimeter-wave ranges is expected to rise.
