Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallet Market Research, 2031

The global cryptocurrency hardware wallet market size was valued at $442.6 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $3.6 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 23.7% from 2022 to 2031.

Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallet Market Insights

A hardware wallet is a cryptocurrency wallet that stores the user’s private keys (critical pieces of information used to authorize ongoing transactions on the blockchain network) in a secure hardware device. The main principle behind the hardware wallet is to provide complete isolation between the private keys and easy-to-hack computer or smartphone applications. Moreover, the asset owner, with the help of a protected hardware wallet, can access the private key to buy and sell crypto assets from any place. Most hardware wallets let users manage several accounts; some even permit users to connect to their Facebook or Google accounts. Hardware wallets are often stored in a protected microcontroller and cannot be transferred out of the wallet, making them highly secure.

Increased use of NFC in cryptocurrency wallets and technological advances to enhance the security of cryptocurrency hardware wallets are driving the growth of the market. In addition, the rise in demand for high transparency of distributed ledger technology across the commercial sector helps to propel the growth of the market. However high cost of installing cryptocurrency hardware wallet is a major factor hampering the growth of cryptocurrency hardware wallet market.

Therefore, rise in need for transparency in the payment system one of the major driving factor of the cryptocurrency hardware wallet market.

Lack of Awareness about Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallet Among People

Lack of awareness about cryptocurrency hardware wallet among various emerging countries restricts growth of the market across the globe. The global economy sector is moving toward a digital eco-system, which includes lending services, money transfer, and investment services. The newest and most promising digital payment system, which is cryptocurrency, is emerging across the globe. Blockchain is a currency exchange platform that allows people to use cryptocurrency for tracking transactions and enables the transfer of information and value. Distributed ledger technology has spread from cryptocurrency to a wide number of applications in the financial and government industry. However, numerous people and financial & government industries across developing nations such as India, Africa, and Australia are less aware regarding transactions made using cryptocurrency and blockchain, which hampers growth of the cryptocurrency hardware wallet market outlook across the globe.  

Untapped Potential on Emerging Economies

Developing economies offer significant opportunities for crypto hardware wallet to expand their business by offering easier access to capital and financial services. Bitcoin, the most famous of these cryptocurrencies, has already permitted many people and companies to develop and flourish, as their source of income. The economy is slowly shifting to adapt to these needs and cryptocurrencies have a great potential in satisfying them. Evolving demographics, rise in consumerism and openness toward new technologies such as IoT, Blockchain, and others provide lucrative opportunities for cryptocurrency across developing nations. According to Oxford Business Group, Nigeria is the leading country for Bitcoin and crypto hardware wallet adoption due to use it as a means of sending remittances. Furthermore, rise in smartphone penetration in Latin America and Africa enables mobile payment service providers to offer sophisticated services on mobile phones. This is considered as an important opportunity for the cryptocurrency hardware wallet market growth.
