Homomorphic Encryption Market is estimated to reach a valuation of USD 268.92 Million by 2027, growing at 8.58% CAGR during the assessment period (2019 to 2027).
The homomorphic encryption (HE) market is very dynamic. The market is driven by the rising demand for secured data transmission, growing investment in cloud-based industries, and growing e-governance initiatives. Furthermore, the high implementation of homomorphic encryption in the banking, finance, and insurance sectors boost the market growth.
COVID-19 has brought up the debate on balancing privacy and public interest to the fore, and homomorphic encryption could help strike the right balance. Coronavirus crises have brought up concerns over public interest and the basic human right to privacy. In order to manage the global epidemic, it becomes important to manage contact tracing and statistical data analysis activities and tools to help identify patterns that could lead to cures or prevention measures.
As expected, this has led to mixed emotions of relief and worry, relief from experts being able to collect and process data to control the virus, and worry that the apps could be used for surveillance or sensitive personal data getting revealed. Homomorphic encryption technology is proving to be useful in developing apps that can offer an acceptable data protection level. Recent initiatives led to fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) becoming 1000 times faster than before.
Homomorphic Encryption Solves Data Protection Vulnerability
Homomorphic encryption solves vulnerability inherent in all other approaches to data protection. The HE technology helps to protect the integrity of data at rest and data in transit. The homomorphic encryption technology is primarily used to secure data stored in the cloud and enable data analytics in regulated industries. Rapid growth in banking and finance, and insurance sectors that need to handle a lot of personally identifiable information (PII) and financial data information that needs to be encrypted drives the market growth.
The homomorphic encryption market size is also boosted by the expanding healthcare, government, and manufacturing industries. These industries benefit from the rise in disposable income, surging healthcare spending, and government initiatives to protect the data.
PE technology would Improve Election Security and Transparency
The proliferation of hybrid cloud is likely to bolster sensitive data required to be stored, shared, and analyzed across systems and parties, exposing it to varying security controls and risks. Current encryption techniques provide data protected during storage and in-transit; however, the data needs to be decrypted before being processed or analyzed. This increases the chances of data getting more vulnerable to theft or exposure, creating a window of opportunity to increase the homomorphic encryption market demand.
There are several researches going on to see how homomorphic encryption technology can be used to improve democratic elections' security and transparency. For example, the partial encryption scheme allows users to add up various values in an unbiased way while keeping their values private can be used for voting-related applications. This technology would protect data from manipulation and allow it to be independently verified by authorized third parties.
Lack of Upgrade of Technology to Restrain Market Growth
Despite the positive growth prospect, the market growth is hindered by factors such as lack of up-gradation and complexity.
Technical Complexities to Challenge Players
The complexity of the encryption method could be a major challenge for the players.
