Research and Markets: The European Electromagnetic Compatibility Testing Equipment and Test Services Market

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3n6cf9/the_european) has announced the addition of the "The European Electromagnetic Compatibility Testing Equipment and Test Services Market" report to their offering.

Electromagnetic interference is caused by the unintentional generation of electrical signals by electronic equipment. This interference can be very harmful to human beings and can cause equipment to malfunction based upon its strength. Therefore, it is important to keep equipment electromagnetically compatible with its environment and other equipment to mitigate pollution caused by electromagnetic interference.

To gain access to the European market, manufacturers of electronic equipment need to comply with the European electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) directives and ensure that their products are CE or "Conformité Européenne" compliant. Only equipment bearing the CE mark can be sold in Europe.

Depending upon the level of risk, manufacturers can self-declare their products as CE. However, most manufacturers prefer to have their products certified by an authorised third-party service provider with a global feel of the market. This would ensure that the manufacturer's product is completely certified, ensuring minimal product recalls and penalties, which can be costly.

The total EMC industry is very fragmented and comprises participants from different technological fields and backgrounds. In general, the total European EMC business can be categorised into the following groups of companies:

  • Manufacturers of EMC conductive and absorbent materials
  • Manufacturers of EMC conductive parts
  • Manufacturers of EMC electronic components
  • Manufacturers of shielded assemblies
  • Manufacturers of shielded construction
  • Manufacturers of EMC test and measurement equipment
  • EMC testing service providers

The EMC industry is influenced by a number of industries. These include the following:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace & defence
  • Communication
  • Consumer electronics
  • Industrial electronics
  • Medical equipment
