Radio frequency transmitter encapsulants are thermosetting elastomers that provide protection against electromagnetic interference for sensitive electronic modules and circuits. They are primarily used as conformal coatings on printed circuit boards or assemblies to protect components and wiring from moisture, chemicals, dust, sand and electromagnetic interference. These encapsulants help extend product life and performance in harsh operating environments like aerospace, military, industrial equipment and medical devices.
The global Radio Frequency Transmitter Encapsulant Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.92 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.3% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
According to the report, radio frequency transmitter encapsulants are increasingly being used as conformal coatings for printed circuit boards and assemblies in sectors like telecommunication, automotive, industrial electronics and medical devices where there is a need to protect electronic circuits from moisture, dust, chemicals and electromagnetic radiation. Growing demand for technologically advanced products across these end use industries is fueling the need for reliable encapsulation solutions.
The global radio frequency transmitter encapsulant market is segmented into type, application, and end-use. Based on type, the epoxy resin segment accounts for over 50% market share in 2021 and is expected to continue dominating the market during the forecast period. This dominance is attributed to high chemical resistance, adhesion, and mechanical strength properties offered by epoxy resins.
