FPGA Accelerators Market Projected to Reach ~US$ 9 Bn by 2021
FPGA accelerators sales is projected to reach ~US$ 9 Bn by 2021 and is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 10% - 12% during 2021-2031. Over the past decade, FPGA accelerators have emerged as a preferred option in data centers, due to their flexible and adaptable architecture and the ability to straddle multiple domains. They are accelerators, giving a boost to the CPU server engine. FPGA accelerators have already set to expand beyond the data centers. When it comes to large scale operations, an FPGA is a better accelerator choice for battery-operated devices, and in cloud services hosted on massive servers with reduced power consumption and minimal costs.
What is Driving Demand for FPGA Accelerators?
Demanding applications such as machine learning, database acceleration and high-speed network processing are driving a need for customized accelerators to off-load work from general-purpose processors. FPGA accelerators meet these needs by combining dedicated hardware acceleration with flexible, software-like adaptability, which is in turn, estimated to drive the FPGA accelerators demand.
Advancements in FPGA accelerator hardware technology have made it easier for designers to customize functions specific to the application. Standard components like clock generators, floating-point units, DRAM controllers, PCI (peripheral component interconnect) express controllers, and even whole multicore microprocessors, are now part of the hardware. FPGA accelerators are deployed into several datacenter hardware such as networking equipment, and storage & server racks among others. Such devices help datacenters to improvise computing & storage applications and reduce network latency. Rising investments by datacenter providers to establishing new data centers will further add opportunities for the FPGA accelerators market expansion. Moreover, need for high data processing across datacenters and swelling network traffic are forming profitable growth prospects for the FPGA accelerators.
Rising Demand for Energy-Efficient FPGA-Based Processing
The application and problem scale is rising significantly every year resulting in an enormous amount of data to be processed. This translates to major consumption of power and energy. Therefore, the ability to integrate the applications in an energy efficient way is one of the key problems being addressed in research and industry. Hence, energy efficiency has become an important metric of performance in recent years. Efficient power consumption and parallelism are the basic features of FPGA accelerators which provides incentive for big data analytics.
Furthermore, FPGA configurability offers a flexibility that makes them even superior to GPU for certain application domains. An important element of FPGA accelerators that can be very much suitable for data processing applications is its parallelism through a hierarchical style architecture. Through hardware programmability, most of the widely used typical data operations could be integrated on FPGA accelerators, thereby fueling the growth of FPGA accelerators market.
Mexico & Middle East Demand Outlook for FPGA Accelerators
The FPGA accelerators demand in Mexico is projected to observe noteworthy growth owing to its thriving automobile industry. Moreover, in November 2018, the semiconductor industry association (SIA), announced the signing of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which ensures that American made tech products like semiconductors are shipped to clients across the globe, by encouraging free trade. These type of contracts are estimated to fuel the demand growth over the coming years.
Additionally, major tech companies have been escalating their data center capabilities to potential regions such as Middle East & Africa, which is likely to result in creating lucrative opportunities for the regional FPGA accelerators production. For instance, in the recent past, Amazon launched three availability zones in Bahrain and Microsoft Corporation initiated data centers in the UAE. Thus, development of data centers in this region is anticipated to considerably boost the sales.
Asia Pacific FPGA Accelerators Outlook
Asia Pacific is estimated to hold the largest share of the global FPGA industry. The presence of main semiconductor foundries such as United Microelectronics Corporation, Samsung Foundries, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company in the region is projected to augment the demand for FPGA accelerators. As these foundries offers services to FPGA companies, they hold significant stakes in those firms. The dependency of industries on data centers and cloud-based computing technology has contributed significantly to the product sales.
Moreover, with growing urbanization in the Asian countries, the FPGA accelerators sales is expected to enhance as different sectors integrates FPGA accelerators to provide highly efficient services to their customers. Also, the initiatives undertaken by countries to implement 5G networking services in Asia Pacific are likely to fuel the demand for FPGA accelerators through 2031.
