In terms of revenue, the global data diode security productsmarket was valued at US$ 339.0 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 430.5 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2020 to 2027.
At present, the business environment across all the technologically potential countries has become progressively digital, making an easy entry for cyber-attacks. Thus, the security and safety of physical assets, such as premises and hardware from physical threats, is essential. By overlooking, cyber threats can lead to severe damages to businesses and users. The critical infrastructure of any organization needs various security products in order to ensure physical protection. Numerous systems that drive critical infrastructure runs on outdated hardware or software systems. To prevent increasing threats, the infrastructures should shift from traditional security measures to advanced solutions. Critical infrastructures across several premises incorporate data diode security products, as it offers high protection for critical systems. Moreover, with data diodes security products, legacy systems can be protected without maintaining the whole operational system. Therefore, this significant advantage of this product is compelling the global market growth.
Several machines used in a variety of industries with different functions and extensive communication capabilities can be prone to misconfiguration and vulnerabilities; therefore, the significance of data diodes is surging among businesses to provide additional security measures. For instance, Siemens AG, a German-based multinational and also a prominent player in transport infrastructure solutions, is highly focused on investing in R&D of security products. Thus, the company builds a compact and effective data diode, which delivers wide range of controlled monitoring and connectivity for security-relevant networks. Its Data Capture Unit (DCU), a one-way data gateway, offers high security and delivers controlled access to the critical system.
Owl Cyber Defense, one of the prominent market players, is highly involved in offering data diode technology. It designed a robust server-based, two-card solution, and a compact DIN rail mountable solution for use in critical infrastructure. Thus, the adoption of data diodes to prevent vulnerabilities from threats and focus of vendors on designing efficient data diode security products for various end user industries are the major factors driving the global market.
Businesses across all the regions are facing severe economic difficulties as they either had to suspend their operations or reduce their activities in a substantial manner. Due to business lockdowns, travel bans, and supply chain disruptions, all the regions are anticipated to experience economic slowdown in 2020 and most likely in 2021.
The entire globe has implemented drastic measures and travel restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19 among the population. Several countries such as the US, China, and the UK represent a major market for data diode security products adoption and growth owing to the rising government regulations to protect critical infrastructure from cyber-attacks. However, due to COVID-19, the manufacturing of various electronics components has seen a sharp decline in these countries and is expected to be under stress in 2020 and it will require time to stabilize. Additionally, the disruptions in raw materials and electronic component supply from China will further aggravate the manufacturing industries. All these factors are expected to have a direct impact on data diode security products market growth.
