Global Embedded Security Market to reach US$ 9.8 billion by 2026

Global Embedded Security Market to grow from its 2019 valuation of US$ 5.8 billion & reach a staggering figure of US$ 9.8 billion by 2026

In the modern digitally-intertwined era, cybercriminals often try innovative methods to conduct malicious activities. Among these, the occurrence of side-channel attacks has increased by leaps and bounds. Side-channel attacks utilize processed data from a system or a chip and use it to steal sensitive data such as cryptographic keys and confidential communication. Side-channel analysis is carried out by security teams where an embedded security system uses several types of security to discover areas of concern. Besides identifying potential embedded security threats, it also has security features for enhanced system engineering that stops hackers from using the software. Moreover, embedded security solutions are also capable of handling end-to-end threat analysis, security design and testing, real-time computing data, and securing programs. Such utilities are paving the way for the expansion of the global embedded security market.

In the 2021-2026 forecast period, the global embedded security market is poised to grow from its 2019 valuation of US$ 5.8 billion and reach a staggering figure of US$ 9.8 billion by 2026. Verily, the CAGR during this period will be 8.1%.
