The rapid advancement in wireless technology has become both a boon and a curse for mankind. With the development of sophisticated electronics that serve to ease our day-to-day work, the emergence of electromagnetic waves from individual components interfere with each other and harm our physical as well as mental well-being. In this scenario, epoxy-based composites are emerging to be a state-of-the-art electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding alternative to conventional materials such as metals. Their lightweight structure and improved mechanical properties render epoxy composites extremely efficient for structural applications. Reinforcements in the form of particles/fabrics are widely used in this regard. The present review deals with the various advancements in the field of modifications of epoxy composites to develop EMI shielding materials. Primary focus has been given on the development of lightweight epoxy modified composites through carbonaceous reinforcements either in the form of particles or fiber mats. Synthesis of hybrid nanoparticles in an epoxy matrix to account for both reflection and absorption losses has also been detailed in this review. Subsequently, we present an outlook on which the direction of future research work can be carried out.
