“The global hardware encryption market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 29.3%”
The market is expected to reach USD 413.85 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 29.3% between 2016 and 2022. Increasing concern for data security issue and privacy of data is one of the major factors fueling the growth of this market. In addition, growing requirement of regulatory compliances, expansion of digital content, and significant advantage over software encryption technology are expected to generate demand for hardware encryption. The key restraining factor for the growth of the hardware encryption market is the high capital investment. The total installation cost of hardware encryption technology includes licensing cost, annual maintenance cost, OPAL fees, pre-provisioning cost, staging cost, technical cost for password reset, user idle time cost for encryption, user excess operating cost, technical cost for the assistance of expert administration to encrypted drives.
“The hardware encryption market for advanced encryption standard (AES) is expected to grow at a highest rate during the forecast period”
The market for advanced encryption standard is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022. Advanced encryption standard is a symmetric-key algorithm, which implies that the same key is used for both the encryption and decryption processes. The fastest growth of this segment can be attributed to the wide acceptance of AES as a highly secure and fast algorithm for encryption.
“External hard disk drives is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period”
External hard disk drive is expected to hold the largest share of the hardware encryption market during the forecast period. The external hard disk drives are used as the add-ons to the existing internal storage present in computing systems. External hard disks have all the features of an internal hard disk drive with additional features such as portable, reliable, and easy to install. The large market share of external hard disk drive based on product segment in hardware encryption market can be attributed mainly to the increasing demand for the portable self-encrypting drive (SED) market.
“The America to hold the largest market and APAC to grow at the highest rate for hardware encryption”
The Americas is expected to hold the largest share of the hardware encryption market during the forecast period. This region is home to many established hardware encryption manufacturing companies. The hardware encryption market in APAC is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period. The primary reason behind this market growth is the expansion of IT and telecommunication network in China, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, India, and other developing countries in APAC. APAC is home to various large number of consumer electronics companies, smartphone manufacturers, and advanced ICT technologies. The enterprises and SMBs in the APAC countries are adopting hardware encryption technique for data security. This is expected to boost the growth of the market for hardware encryption in APAC.
