The rising penetration of AI and machine learning technologies globally is fueling the market growth as demand for high-performance computing increases. In October 2020, the Ministry of Science and ICT, Government of South Korea, set an ambitious goal to develop 50 prototypes of AI-focused semiconductor systems by 2030. The government has announced to spend USD 890 million to become AI-leader by 2029, which will increase the adoption of FPGA in AI-based systems. Field Programmable Gate Array is a semiconductor device, which can be configured and reprogramed according to desired functionality and application requirement after manufacturing. These features make it flexible than its counterpart technologies such as Application-Specific Standard Products (ASSPs) and Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs). FPGA devices offer several benefits such as high-performance, cost efficiency, and energy efficiency, growing their acceptance in AI workstations, edge AI devices, and High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications.

Increasing network traffic and the need for high data processing across datacenters are creating high growth opportunities for the FPGA market. FPGA devices are integrated into various datacenter hardware such as storage & server racks, and networking equipment, among others. These devices help datacenter hardware to reduce network latency and improvise storage & computing applications. Increasing investments by datacenter providers to establishing new data centers will further add opportunities for the market expansion.

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has severely impacted the supply chain of raw materials and components for the market. Major players operating in the industry have manufacturing bases located in China and other South-East Asian countries. Stringent lockdowns by the local governments in China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore have disrupted semiconductor manufacturing activities. Companies are therefore focusing on reestablishing their manufacturing facilities at new locations to mitigate the risk associated with supply-chain disruption during crises.

Rising adoption of SRAM FPGA in military and aerospace applications will boost the market value

The SRAM architecture segment dominated around 55% of the market share in 2020 and is projected to witness growth rate of around 17% through 2027. SRAM architecture-based field programmable gate arrays are developed on the CMOS fabrication process that offers improved power efficiency and higher logic density compared to other architectures spurring the market revenue. These field programmable gate arrays offer re-programmability and higher integration along with high flexibility and performance, augmenting demand across the military and aerospace applications such as radar, electronic warfare systems, and secure wireless communications. However, SRAM-based field programmable gate arrays are highly volatile and cannot store data without a dedicated power source. To overcome this challenge, industry leaders are focusing on developing advanced SRAM memory solutions to optimize FPGA-based devices in the market.
