Segmental Analysis

The globalfield programmable gate array (FPGA) market is segmented by configuration, technology, node size, and end-user industry.

Based on configuration, the global market is bifurcated into low-end FPGA, mid-end FPGA, and high-end FPGA.

The mid-range FPGA segment dominates the global market and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.6% over the forecast period. In the high-end FPGA market, Xilinx (now AMD) and Intel are prominent players, capturing a significant share of use cases. Many other FPGA companies focus on the mid-range and low-end with a lower cost of entry to start competing. Until recently, the small and medium companies did not have the momentum to tackle these giants in the high-end FPGA segment (AMD and Intel). However, the high-end FPGA market represents the largest segment of the FPGA business. Currently, some companies also introduce their products in the high-end FPGA segment. High-end FPGAs of Xilinx and Intel are targeted for their application in 5G infrastructure, AI/ML, automotive, computational storage, compute acceleration, networking, defense and hardware assurance, and testing and measurement.

Based on technology, the global market is bifurcated into SRAM-based FPGA, anti-fuse-based FPGA, and flash-based FPGA, and others.

The SRAM-based FPGA is the most significant contributor to the market share and is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 8.3% over the forecast period. Designing low-power SRAM cells is necessary for today's FPGAs, as SRAM is an essential component of FPGA design and consumes most of the total power. SRAM is used in a computer's cache memory and as part of a video card's random-access memory digital-to-analog converter. In addition, SRAM-based FPGAs are created using the CMOS fabrication method, which allows higher power efficiency and logic density than previous technologies, propelling the market forward. The widespread use of SRAM-based FPGAs in military and aerospace applications, telecommunications and wireless communication systems, and consumer goods further fuels segment expansion.

An anti-fuse-based FPGA is the most secure programmable device available. The anti-fuse in these FPGAs can be burned to conduct current. The anti-fuse cannot be changed once it has been ignited. Hence, these FPGA boards can only be programmed once and are not reusable. For instance, Actel's Anti fuse is like fuse technology as it is one-time programmable (OTP). The opposite part of anti-fuse comes from its programming method. Instead of disconnecting the metal connection by passing an electric current, it grows and connects the link.

Based on the end-user industry, the global market is segmented into IT and telecommunication, consumer electronics, automotive, industrial, military and aerospace, telecom, healthcare, and others. 

The military and aerospace segment owns the highest market share and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period. Field programmable gate arrays have become common in signal processing boards for defense applications such as radar and sonar. These devices promise even higher performance, especially in communication technologies like software-defined radio. Domestically and abroad, the aerospace and space sectors extensively use FPGAs, particularly in commercial satellites. According to data, FPGAs are used in 60 deep space exploration projects, research and commercial satellites in the US and abroad, and many military satellite programs.

FPGAs can replace older ASIC technologies for industrial applications to provide more cost-effective solutions. As a communication coprocessor, FPGAs are responsible for connecting to Ethernet, and flexible solutions can support different protocols over a single hardware platform. In addition, the FPGA controls the motor. This is easily achieved with an embedded processor, real-time characteristics, and a digital encoder. Further, Industry 4.0 relies on connection and autonomous operation to construct robust industrial IoT applications. Industrial system designers can use FPGA industrial automation solutions to drastically cut costs and time to market for factory automation system designs.
