Market Overview
Global FPGA Security Market stood at USD 1,670.3 Million in 2017 and can touch an approximate valuation of USD 3,700 Million by 2025, continually growing at 10.87% CAGR during the forecast period. 
FPGA security refers to preventing data theft attacks leading to IP theft, damages to FPGA-based systems, and substantial data loss. There are different security features depending upon the type of attacks, such as cloning & overbuilding, reverse engineering, spoofing, tampering, and others. 
The FPGA security market is growing rapidly due to the rising FPGA applications, including digital communication, industrial control systems, databases, and high-performance signal processing that process large volumes of sensitive data. Therefore, FPGA security becomes crucial to protect these applications.
COVID-19 Analysis
COVID-19 couldn't do much damage to the global FPGA security industry. There were minor challenges in Q2 & Q3 2020, mainly due to slow down in various FPGA end-user verticals. The global telecom industry has reportedly faced major delays in launching the fifth-generation mobile service following the coronavirus outbreak worldwide. However, only 33% of IT budgets shrunk, and most budgets aligned spending on mobile access and security enhancements.
Computational storage would demonstrate useful applications, and storage security will be a big focus to secure valuable institutional data. Rise in computational storage using ASICs/FPGA domain-specific processors (or accelerators) would increase the need for storage security to address ransomware and other cybersecurity attacks. 
A major emphasis on developing more comprehensive storage system security is expected to be seen. In 2021, regulatory bodies would enact stricter data privacy laws for consumer protection, and companies would make FPGA security their topmost priority and invest in confidential computing, the virtual private Cloud, and other secure infrastructure.
