Automotive EMI: Introduction

  • The automotive industry is witnessing technological advancements. The swift adoption of autonomous vehicle systems is driving the need for a more intricate electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) system design. With the advent of new technologies, vehicle platforms have become complex requiring reliable electronic devices that function without impacting the vehicle’s security and components. There are several tests to detect electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) generated by electrical equipment and devices used in ADAS, drive assist system, and parking assist system.
  • Technologies, such as ADAS, driver assist systems, and parking assist systems operate at high bit-rate and bandwidth, hence requiring high frequencies for better performances. Each of these systems witness EMI emission, which, under unprotected state, interferes with other electronic systems in the vehicle. Thus, electronic devices used in ADAS, drive assist systems, and parking assist systems must comply with electromagnetic compatibility standards (EMC) and environmental policies to control these EMI. For instance, in order to reduce EMI in vehicles, devices or equipment are coated with conductive coating or EMI shielding are used.

Global Automotive EMI Market: Dynamics

  • Continuous advancements in technology and improvements in lifestyle have generated the demand for faster and efficient vehicles. Connected vehicles offer navigation, anti-theft, distance monitoring, parking assist, and other systems for increasing safety and catering to customer needs. Such systems make use of high bandwidth and frequencies, which emit EMI. In order to control EMI and comply with EMC standards, devices emitting EMI are required to have resistive coating or shielding. This need to comply with EMC regulations is driving the launch of better electronic devices with lesser EMI emissions.
  • The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CRDH), part of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has identified electromagnetic interference i.e. radiation by electronic devices as a public health and safety concern. For instance, EMI with cardiac pacemakers has been a concern since late 1960. The compliance of electronic devices with EMC standards can be considered as a restraining factor for the market. Manufacturers catering to special purpose vehicles in healthcare and defense & aerospace sectors must comply with EMC standards.

Passenger Vehicle Segment to Lead Global Automotive EMI Market

  • Government organizations and regulatory bodies across the world have started implementing policies pertaining to safety. For instance, the European Union has mandated incorporation of AEB, LDW, and traction control systems in passenger vehicles. These systems use various electronic components, which exhibit electromagnetic interference compromising other electronic systems and equipment. In order to reduce EMI caused by electronic components, EMI resisting coatings and EMI shielding are used. These factors are likely to lead to high growth of the passenger vehicle segment.

Asia Pacific to Hold Major Share of Automotive EMI Market

  • Asia Pacific is a leading manufacturer and consumer of automobiles in the world. Increase in demand for automotive EMI in the region can be attributed to continued urbanization, increased vehicle production, growing automotive safety concerns, and high demand for luxury vehicles in China, Japan, India, and South Korea. Furthermore, in order to comply with EMC norms, automakers have to use EMI shielding, EMI coatings, and EMI filters to reduce electromagnetic interference caused by electronic systems in vehicles. Thus, Asia Pacific is a significant market for automotive EMI.
