The major difference between hardware encryption and software encryption is that in hardware based encryption, encryption and decryption processes are done by a dedicated processor on the hardware encrypted device. In software encryption, the resources of the device on which the software is installed, are used for the encrypting and decrypting the data. This makes hardware encryption much faster. Another advantage to hardware encryption is that the cryptographic key is stored in a separate inaccessible portion of memory storage, thus making it more secure than software encryption.
The global hardware encryption market revenue is expected to reach $14.86 billion by end of 2013 is expected to grow to $166.67 billion in 2018 at a CAGR of 62.17%. Similarly, volumes are estimated to grow from roughly 59.76 million units to 691.79 million units in 2018 at a CAGR of 63.20%. This growth is heralded by the growing consumer electronics applications market for hardware encryption products. The hardware encryption applications in the Military Defense and Aerospace (MDA) applications sector is also expected to grow rapidly in the coming five years.
