Global Hardware Security Modules Market Forecast to 2028: Increasing Deployment of Connected Devices and IoT Technology in Smart Cities Creates Market Opportunities

DUBLIN, Jan. 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The “Global Hardware Security Modules Market by Deployment Type (Cloud, On-premise), Type (LAN Based /Network Attached, PCI Based/Embedded Plugins, USB Based/Portable, Smart Cards), Application, Vertical and Region – Forecast to 2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global hardware security modules market is projected to grow from USD 1.2 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 2.3 billion by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.5% from 2023 to 2028.

The growth of the hardware security modules market is driven by increasing data breaches and cyberattacks, need to follow stringent data security compliances, and emergence of digital transactions, electronic payments leading to rise in the need for protecting sensitive financial data. However, high ownership costs associated with hardware security modules is limiting the growth of the hardware security modules market.

USB-based/portable HSMs to witness highest growth during the forecast period

The USB-based/portable hardware security modules segment is expected to witness the highest growth in the hardware security modules during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the rising demand for USB based HSMs among users due to its lower cost, compact size and portability features. The USB based modules are small and portable, therefore can be deployed for various functions including coding and signing, digital signatures, and secure key storage. It is capable of encryption and key protection and is ideally suited for off-line key generation for certificate authorities as well as development and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments. These modules are preferred by all the industries as they offer superior security, cost-efficiency, and ease of deployment. Hence, HSMs with USBs are widely used by governments and financial institutions to secure data, applications, and identities to reduce the chances of risk, and ensure regulatory compliance. Furthermore, USB connectivity makes such modules suitable for use with laptops, desktops and workstations. With the use of an integrated reader, these modules become ideal for situations with limited space or where they must be frequently used.

Cloud deployment expected to exhibit higher growth compared to the on-premise segment during the forecast period

The cloud deployment segment is expected to exhibit higher growth compared to the on-premise segment during the forecast period. This mode has the ability to perform cryptographic operations and render absolute control over keys to customers through separation of duties. Moreover, the cloud-based HSMs allow users quick scalability by adding and removing hardware security module capacity on-demand, with no up-front costs. These HSMs are capable of generating their own encryption keys on the cloud. Cloud HSMs also provide flexibility to integrate with applications such as APIs, Java Cryptographic Extension and so on.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) application segment to exhibit highest growth for the hardware security modules market during forecast period

The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) application segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of (15.7%) during the forecast period. HSMs are designed to create a secure boundary for cryptographic operations and communications. So, this feature is very useful in Secure On-board communication where communication between different components within an embedded system takes place (e.g., communication between sensors/actuators and Microprocessor). Majorly used Secure Communication Protocols: Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS), Internet Protocol Security (IPsec), Secure Shell (SSH), Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME), Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WAP3). HSMs store and manage cryptographic keys used in SSL/TLS protocols. This includes private keys used for server authentication and digital signatures. The keys never leave the HSM, ensuring they are protected from unauthorized access. HSMs are designed to accelerate cryptographic operations, including the SSL/TLS handshake process. This can improve the overall performance of SSL/TLS connections.

Asia Pacific to witness significant growth for the hardware security modules market during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit significant growth for the hardware security modules market during the forecast period. The presence of three of the top 10 largest economies in the world – China, India, and Japan, offers a high potential for market growth. There is an increasing demand for hardware security modules on account of rise in the number of manufacturers that have diversified business units. The countries in this region are notably contributing toward the growth of the market, as there is rapid adoption of hardware security modules by enterprises in the region. Thus, technology vendors across the region are coming up with HSM solutions for stopping card skimming and stealing identity activities. The continuously growing customer base of organizations in the region is fueling the growth of the Asia Pacific hardware security modules market. Countries in Asia Pacific are considerably contributing toward the growth of the market, owing to the rapid adoption of hardware security modules by enterprises in the region.
