The global Network Processing Unit (NPU) market is set to grow at a CAGR of 12.5% during the forecast period, with an estimated value of USD 1.7 billion by 2028. The demand for NPU in the consumer electronics segment is projected to reach USD 571 million by 2028 from USD 329 million in 2018 and will be the fastest-growing segment in terms of revenue generation over the forecast period.
Network Processing Unit (NPU) is a hardware component that enables network-based services and applications. NPUs are also used for processing tasks such as device discovery, routing, input/output control, and security checks on data packets. The most distinguishing feature of an NPU is its capability to perform complex operations without the intervention of any other processor or microprocessor in the system. These processors can work independently from each other to handle concurrent flows at high speeds with minimal latency by exploiting their parallel structure.
On the basis of type, the global Network Processing Unit (NPU) market is segmented into wired Network Processing Unit (NPU) and wireless network processing unit.
It is a Network Processing Unit (NPU) that is connected to the network by using wires. NPUs operate at high speeds and are capable of transferring data in gigabits per second.
wireless Network Processing Unit (NPU) is a computer processor which operates primarily over radio waves. Wireless NPU can provide more flexibility in deploying computing resources by wirelessly connecting them to other devices without the need for physical cables and connections. These processors are broadly used in applications such as RFID, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, and many others. They have been designed with reduced power consumption features for mobile phone battery life management and data transfers that support remote sensors or IoT connectivity requirements.
On the basis of application, the global Network Processing Unit (NPU) market is segmented into consumer electronics, communications and IT, military and government applications, and others.
The use of NPU in the consumer electronics industry has increased with time due to the need for compact devices that offer high processing power at a low cost. There are various types available on the market including Wi-Fi chipsets which help reduce manufacturing costs since they can be combined with other components such as Bluetooth or ZigBee radios. Furthermore, these processors provide flexibility by wirelessly connecting them together without cables thus reducing cabling challenges when scaling up an infrastructure system. This type of processor offers support features like reduced power consumption for mobile phone battery life management and data transfers which can be done wirelessly.
Wireless Network Processing Unit (NPU) is used in consumer electronics, communications, and IT applications. They have been designed with reduced power consumption features for mobile phone battery life management and data transfers that support remote sensors or IoT connectivity requirements.
Wired NPUs on the other hand are broadly used in communication networks such as telephone lines, cable TV systems, satellite links, etc., for signal processing of voice and video signals at various speeds like 384 kbps to 155 Mbps. This type also offers a large bandwidth density which can be beneficial when transferring audio/video content over long distances without adding additional infrastructure costs. Wired networking is less prone to interference from external sources than wireless connection because it doesn’t suffer from exposure to radiofrequency emissions.
The military sector will see significant growth due to the increasing adoption of these processors in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). These processors are used as a sensor fusion node for surveillance tasks such as target detection and reconnaissance. They can process imagery from infrared thermal cameras and produce accurate representations of an area without incurring any physical risks associated with manned operations. Other use cases include intelligence gathering, signal processing, speech recognition software development, decryption algorithms research & design, etc., which require high levels of computational performance coupled with high levels of parallelism.
The government sector is a major consumer of Network Processing Unit (NPU) and the uses are diverse. Some of them include: * Data Center Management – This application monitors power, cooling systems, and other critical aspects in data centers to ensure proper operations by monitoring temperature, humidity levels as well as environmental conditions such as air pressure and water flow.
On the basis of region, the global Network Processing Unit (NPU) market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American region is expected to dominate the global Network Processing Unit (NPU) market by 2020 owing to the presence of high-end infrastructure in this region such as data centers which will contribute significantly towards higher demand for NPUs.
Latin America is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to increased investments in grid modernization, power transmission, and distribution. The region will also witness a rise in demand for NPUs from other applications such as communication & IT, consumer electronics, and military & government sectors.
The Middle East and Africa are witnessing high growth rates due to the healthy economic outlook of countries such as Saudi Arabia, South Africa which can augment the market size through 2020. Emerging economies like India have a huge potential for network processing units (NPU) with its growing e-commerce sector that offers numerous opportunities for manufacturers in this segment; hence it will be among one of the fastest-growing markets globally over an expected time frame.
The Network Processing Unit (NPU) market has grown at a significant pace over the past decade. A surge in consumer demand for smartphones, tablets, and other devices is one of the key factors driving growth as these products are equipped with NPUs which helps them perform complex graphics-based tasks such as processing images or video content.
In addition, increased investments from telecom companies into fiber-optic networks and next-generation wireless technologies have stimulated network equipment spending especially when it comes to radios, nodes & access points to extend networks.
