Hardware Wallet Market Overview

The Hardware Wallet Market Size was valued at USD 245.3 million in 2021. The Hardware Wallet market industry is projected to grow from USD 285.1 million in 2022 to USD 1,449.2 million by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.5% during the forecast period (2022 - 2030).

Hardware wallets may be considered of as very simplified computers that exist simply to do a few simple but important activities, sometimes with only one or two buttons and occasionally a tiny screen. Hardware wallets have no method of connecting to the internet on their own, making it nearly difficult for hackers to access their contents. When a user spends cryptocurrency, swaps assets, or otherwise sends and receives assets to/from a wallet, the transaction must be "signed" using their private key. Transactions with a hardware wallet are signed within the device itself through a crypto bridge, which is a basic piece of software that allows a hardware wallet to connect to the blockchain.

The crypto bridge delivers unsigned transaction data to the device when a user connects their hardware wallet to a PC. The hardware wallet then uses the private key to sign the transactions and uploads them back to the bridge, which broadcasts them to the rest of the blockchain network as complete. A user's private key is never removed from the hardware wallet during this operation.

Covid-19 Analysis

With the rise of the cryptocurrency industry in December 2017, many new people learned about blockchain and cryptocurrencies and began to investigate them. As a result, the number of blockchain and cryptocurrency wallet users has increased significantly. According to a 2021 poll, there are more than 68.42 million blockchain wallet users. The rapidly increasing demand for cryptocurrencies throughout the epidemic has affected the hardware wallet business positively. Cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, are rapidly transitioning from risky investment assets to payment mechanisms. As the COVID-19 epidemic has prompted increased requests for payment dematerialization, there is a rising focus on payment patterns and the financial life cycle.

Post-pandemic scenario

Consumer and businesses now have adopted the use of hardware wallets as a better option than software wallets in order to protect private keys from the hackers. Post-pandemic is expected to start a new era of hardware wallets in most economies.
