  • Lack of supply of semiconductors.


The COVID-19 epidemic has led to the growth of a Embedded security market. The epidemic has had an impact on the market due to remote operations due to land closures around the world. Remote operation has led to an increase in cyber-attacks which necessitates the use of security equipment to protect resources from attack. This has boosted the market for embedded security devices. Key players focus on saving and generating revenue that has led to an increase in the number of developments in the embedded security market by 2021. However, the impact of the epidemic is expected to decline gradually over the forecast period.

Increasing attacks on embedded systems increase the market demand for embedded security solutions. Although, industrial automation has increased the need for Internet of Things (IoT), which has created opportunities for the adoption of loT security solutions. The demand for security solutions is growing across banks, transportation, and wearables that add to market growth. Embedded safety solutions are widely accepted in the automotive industry to prevent car theft, protect car locks, ignition, and much more. Advanced smartphones, tablets, payment cards, etc., have a large amount of shipping using a secure embedded sim and solution that is expected to further market demand.

North America is expected to show the highest growth in the embedded security market. North America has developed a large number of loT and smart projects that increase the need for loT security on a large scale. However, growing software attacks should be a major concern at the global level, which increases the need for security solutions. Connected devices such as smartphones, PCs, wearables, etc. officially use embedded security solutions, to protect themselves from such attacks.

Asia Pacific (APAC) represents the largest share of this market. China and Japan are at the forefront of this market due to the presence of a number of key players around the world. The increasing number of attacks on all connected mobile devices has authorized the adoption of such security solutions. In addition, the increase in the number of mobile subscriptions in the region is also driving market growth. The ongoing practice of digital production under government regulations in all developing countries increases the need for secure loT and embedded device infrastructure. As such, APAC expects to continue the growing need for embedded security.

14. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
