The global anechoic test chambers market was valued at USD 1.1 Bn in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 1.4 Bn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 2.7% during the forecast period. An anechoic chamber prevents sound, radio signals, and electromagnetic waves from echoing in a room. Anechoic chambers often test antennas, measure the direction of sound, or record music.
The anechoic chambers are called electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) chambers. They are silent, as they absorb sound. Anechoic chambers are used in several universities for conducting several experiments. It is specifically designed to absorb electromagnetic waves or sound. Surfaces of space are formed in pyramid structures of radar-absorbing substance, and any radiation generated inside the room is absorbed by its walls.
Anechoic chambers are used to measure radar cross-section measurements and radiation patterns of antennas. It can be of any size, ranging from a small box to an aircraft hangar. It contains a variety of absorbing materials that line the inside of the box. Several radiofrequency (RF) chambers use foam pyramids containing conductive carbon black. Pyramidal structures are sized according to the wavelength.
The report finds that the COVID-19 pandemic hampered the overall revenue market due to the sharp decline in manufacturing automotive products worldwide. As a part of preventive measures imposed by governments across countries to curb the virus spread, the prolonged shutdown of factories across industries had plummeted the overall product demand. However, the pandemic opened up growth opportunities that helped moderate revenue generation for the global market.
