The Europe FPGA market will exhibit high growth rate owing to emerging 5G technology, which will create a lucrative demand for infrastructure development in the telecommunication sector. To implement 5G, telecom operators in the region are projected to deploy FPGA-based devices such as advanced antenna systems, modulators, telecom servers and other base station equipment. The new 5G infrastructure will increase the penetration of FPGA devices in Europe. According to European 5G Observatory, as of March 2020, 10 countries in European Union have successfully commercialized 5G services in the region. The faster adoption of 5G services in the region will support the market growth.
The anti-fuse architecture segment held a market share of 2% in 2019 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5% from 2020 to 2026. The growth is attributed to exceptional features offered by anti-fuse compared to SRAM and flash-based architecture such as secured programming, smaller footprint, ultra-low power consumption, and high-resistance to temperature.
The automotive application segment is showcasing a significant growth opportunity in the market and will grow at a CAGR of 12% over the forecast timeline. The growth is attributed to increasing adoption of electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles (EVs/BEVs) in the region. According to the International Energy Agency, Europe witnessed 50% increase in sales of electric vehicles in 2019. In electric vehicles (EVs), FPGAs are integrated into power control units, battery management systems, and electronic control unit (ECU) for improving the performance, functional safety, and product life.
Germany is expected to hold the major market share in the market over the forecast timeline. The growth is attributed to extensive production of aircraft in the German aviation industry. For instance, according to the GTAI (Germany Trade and Invest) report 2018, around 300 aircraft are produced in the German Aerospace Industry every year, i.e., 17% of the total global production.
The market players are extensively focusing on continuous research & development activities to provide technically advanced products than their competitors. For instance, in March 2020, Cologne Chip AG launched small and medium-sized FPGA based on 28nm CMOS process technology. The new product has applications in IoT, industrial, automotive, security, and communication. Some of the players operating in the market are ByteSnap Design, Enclustra GmbH, EnSilica, Cologne Chip AG, Cobham PLC, among others.
