Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing - Global Market Outlook (2021 - 2028)
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing Market is accounted for $2.29 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $3.87 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing is a testing process done to ensure that an electronic or electrical device does not emit a large amount of electromagnetic interference and that the device continues to function as required in the presence of several electromagnetic phenomena. EMC needs to be considered to install electrical equipment, such as television sets, computers, washing machines, vehicles, aircraft, ships, or large industrial machines. The proliferation of electrical and electronic devices at a large scale is forcing governments to invest heavily in EMC testing. Benefits of EMC Testing include increased product reliability, reduced servicing costs, and improved brand loyalty.
Effective interoperability of connected devices and networks
There is an increasing demand to check the interconnectivity of smart objects with the internet infrastructure to create a global network called the Internet of Things (IoT). Interoperability issues can lead to vendor lock-in, impossibility to develop IoT applications exposing cross-platform, difficulty in plugging non-interoperable IoT devices into different platforms, and prevention of emergence of technology at a large-scale. Hence, electromagnetic compatibility testing is required to enable seamless resources shared between different IoT vendors, allowing them to work together.
High costs of EMC testing
The electromagnetic interference (EMI)/electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) compliance tests can be expensive as various factors need to be considered, which include the type of product, the number of countries it will be certified in, design and debug time, the number of boards to be tested, and certification test cost. Not all manufacturers are able to afford the expenses, which is severely hampering the market growth.
Increasing inclination for pre-compliance EMC testing of products
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) pre-compliance testing includes a Spectrum analyzer with the quasi-peak detector, preamplifier, and antenna with non-metallic stand for radiated emissions, line impedance stabilization network (LISN), and power limiter for the conducted test. EMC pre-compliance testing is desirable as it saves time, money, and effort. The full EMC compliance testing can be expensive, with costs ranging from USD 1,000 to USD 20,000 per submission, depending on the device and product penetration. In addition to this, a failure in EMC compliance at this late stage of product development can result in expensive re-designing. Therefore, it is highly recommended to perform pre-compliance testing of products.
Presence of standards and regulations
Several organizations, both national and international, work to promote international co-operation on standardization (harmonization), including publishing various EMC standards. Where possible, a standard developed by one organization may be adopted with little or no change by others. Electromagnetic compatibility standards define the frequency range and limit of unnecessary electromagnetic radiation emitted by electrical and electronic devices to prevent telecommunication and broadcasting devices from being interrupted, causing interference or other problems. The electromagnetic emissions are measured for the radiated field strength, along with cables and wiring. Hence, adhering to domestic and international EMC standards and regulations is a major threat for the market growth.
The services segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The services segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. Services segment will witness significant growth during the forecast period, followed by hardware and software segments. There is an increasing demand for EMC testing services to ensure that the products adhere to quality, technical safety, and performance regulatory standards. These services are required by the manufacturers to carry out testing activities in laboratories, and other facilitates in order to improve the marketability of their products. EMC testing services help to reduce the manufacturing costs in the pre-production phase. A growing trend in such requests from manufacturers is anticipated to bolster segment growth. Also, there is a demand for inspection services for examining traded goods from manufacturers to end-users.
The consumer appliances and electronics segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The consumer appliances and electronics segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. The high proliferation of consumer appliances and electronics and a rise in wireless technologies, such as cellular, bluetooth, near-field communications (NFC), and Wi-Fi, is boosting the growth of EMC testing applications in the consumer appliance and electronics segment. An electronic device is an interconnection of different systems and components. EMC necessities for consumer appliances are a cross-reference to radiofrequency requirements with embedded wireless functionality. With the advent of IoT, these devices are dependent on these components for better performance.
Region with highest share:
Europe is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to stringent government regulations to maintain product quality and brand trust. The government is enforcing several regulations to improve environmental health and product lifecycle and infrastructure. The electrical or electronic equipment should achieve the 'Conformité Européenne' and carry the CE mark of certification, as advised in the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC for free trade across the European Union. In the energy sector, regular inspection of nuclear power plants is a prime source for the adoption of EMC test services. The U.K. has more than 14 nuclear power plants with reactors of an average age of 33.33 years, which is expected to increase demand in the near future.
Region with highest CAGR:
Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to its rising IT infrastructure and burgeoning electronics manufacturing industry. Moreover, the region held the largest market size for the industrial end-use application due to the presence of many industries that require the use of high-performance and efficient equipment working in tandem with each other. EMC testing is necessary as it helps to ensure the operation of multiple equipments without exceeding the acceptable limits of electromagnetic radiation, thereby, not affecting the performance and thereby growing at a rapid phase in the region.
