Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).
Top Impacting Factors
The deployment of integrated circuits to address high bandwidth requirements in the telecommunications sector is expected to generate significant demand. For the protection of their clients, FPGA manufacturers are shielding their designs from suppliers and blocking reverse engineering approaches. Manufacturers may benefit from a focus on data integrity, authentication, and confidentiality of internal FPGA hardware.
Furthermore, including encryption into FPGA designs can provide clients with peace of mind. Customizing processors by adding more logic gates to the architecture can help to protect against security flaws. Another factor which is helping the FPGA security market to grow is the efficiency of FPGA. The market growth may be hampered by remote side channel attacks. There are a few security concerns with FPGA, which can limit the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Rapid Growth in Data Centers and Cloud Computing
The rise of data centers and cloud computing has necessitated the need for data security solutions. Existing storage solutions can benefit from the addition of programmable logic solutions in the form of hardware. With the use of bitstream authentication solutions, cloud security architects may increase data center authentication. In industries, data transmission endpoints must be protected from harmful data.
FPGAs can provide industrial controls with better security that is superior to routinely updated antivirus software databases. Cyberattacks frequently target diverse network topologies with limited encryption and protective standards. Reprogrammed algorithms and cryptographic protocols can be incorporated in FPGAs to speed up loop execution and parallelization. FPGA security solutions may be beckoned by the advent of Industry 4.0 and its plethora of applications.
Increase in Demand For FPGA Security Due to Telecommunication Industry
The telecommunications industry is one of the most promising, with high demand for FPGAs. The global telecom business is rising due to increased investments and developments in communication infrastructure in both developed and developing countries. IoT, AI, and edge computing technologies are driving a paradigm shift in customer needs and preferences, and they are presenting both opportunities and difficulties for telecoms firms.
Due to the complex operations involved in the telecommunications sector and expanding customer demand, the operating needs of equipment/hardware utilized in the sector, as well as demand for secure communications, are rapidly increasing. FPGAs are widely employed in this industry for a variety of purposes, including packet processing and data packet switching. In the next years, advantages such as easy configurability, flexibility, low latency operations, effective hardware acceleration, and low costs are likely to propel the FPGA security market size for the telecommunications sector forward.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis
The worldwide quarantine imposed in response to the COVID-19 outbreak resulted in an economic catastrophe that has thrown practically every business into disarray. The epidemic is wreaking havoc on a variety of industries, and the FPGA security market is no exception. Following the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak, businesses were forced to make difficult financial and cost-cutting decisions to ensure the continued flow of goods.
The COVID-19 pandemic has a significant impact on semiconductor and processor manufacture. Manufacturers' deadlines and targets were impacted by the lockdown restrictions imposed on manufacturing operations. The COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown have resulted in the closure of activities, as well as e-commerce and retail stores, putting supply chains at risk and widening the gap between demand and supply.
In response of COVID-19's long-term implications, governments are attempting to address the problem by enacting beneficial initiatives and policies such as financial packages, lower interest rates, and tax exemptions. However, the simplicity with which limits can be imposed and the expansion of LTE networks, together with the use of smart and connected devices, may drive the demand for FPGA security. Customers' discretionary income levels are rising, and their preference for devices is increasing, which is good news for the global industry.
