The future of EMF shielding and RF Protection

 The Future of EMF Shielding: What You Need to Know

EMF shielding is here – and it’s likely not going anywhere. In fact, EMF Shielding and RF Protection are only likely to advance and improve with time.

According to a study by Markets & Markets, the EMF shielding market was valued at about $7 billion in 2023.  It is likely to reach about $9.4 billion by 2028, representing a compound annual growth rate of nearly 6 percent.

At Signals Defense, our EMF shielding products largely consist of window films, foils, paints and products that help safeguard businesses from digital spying.  Business are at risk of digital spying when RF or IR signals from electronic devices emit beyond the walls of a building or office. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at what the future holds for EMF shielding:

The Future of EMF Shielding

As we said earlier, EMF shielding largely consists of products that can help safeguard a building or an office (i.e., SCIF) from digital spying and potential data theft. These products offer RF protection and IR protection to keep the radio frequency signals emitted by electronics like phones, computers, servers, routers, recorders, Bluetooth devices and more from carrying beyond their intended reach. Such products also prevent other outside signals from interfering with your electronics.

So, what are some other potential uses for EMF shielding technology? Here’s a look at what the future could look like:


It’s estimated that the average car contains some 1,500 semiconductor chips. However, it’s not uncommon for some cars to pack as many as 3,000 semiconductor chips into their body and assembly. Yes, today’s vehicles are loaded with electronics – from built-in GPS to satellite radio and more. With more than 283 million registered vehicles in the United States, technology-packed cars are all over the road today. EMF shielding applications can simply help vehicles’ electronics work more effectively and efficiently by preventing their signals from interfering with other signals.


Airplanes aren’t just an avenue for getting from one place to another quickly – they’re also a venue where passengers expect to be entertained and where they can even catch up on work. The next time you’re on a plane, look around you and count how many people are on their iPad, laptop, video game consoles and other electronics. We’d bet it’s many of the passengers. Throw in the fact that the cockpit of planes is packed with controls and electronics to help pilots safely fly planes, and EMF shielding should become an even more important part of air travel in the future.


From the electric grid to renewable energy solutions like wind farms and solar farms, these crucial locations need to be free from electromagnetic interference if they’re going to provide their core service of delivering power to the communities they serve. RF shielding paints, for example, hold the potential for wind turbines and solar panels. In addition to these paints helping prevent electromagnetic interference, they may also help prevent overheating.
