The global data diode solution market size was valued at USD 437.1 million in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 488.4 million in 2023 to USD 1,116.2 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 12.5% during the forecast period.

Cyber-attacks, malware, ransomware, and phishing attacks have increased substantially in recent years, necessitating the implementation of comprehensive cyber security architecture to safeguard mission-critical assets. Thus, rising trends and challenges involving critical infrastructure, cybersecurity, and industrial assets are accelerating the demand for data diode solutions.

According to research by Infosecurity Magazine, a prominent part of Infosecurity Group, a business unit owned and operated by Reed Exhibitions UK Ltd., ransomware damages were expected to exceed USD 30 billion globally in 2023. Furthermore, according to the Acronis’ report, 600 malicious email drives were launched in the first six months of 2022, 28% of which contained malware and 58% were phishing emails. In the near future, the development of Operational Technology (OT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) is projected to fuel the market expansion.

The market is inclusive of various data diode solutions such as X.D. Prism MPP by Owl Cyber Defense, WF-500 by Waterfall Security Solutions Ltd., 1G (TX to R.X.) by VADO Security Technologies Ltd., BLDPR469EN0918 Hirschmann Rail Data Diode by Belden Inc., among others.


Increasing Number of Cyber-attacks on Oil & Gas and Manufacturing Industries amid COVID-19 to Surge the Product Demand

The coronavirus pandemic created significant challenges as businesses shifted their working models. Businesses are accelerating their digital transitions, and cybersecurity has emerged as a top priority. The pandemic hampered the overall performance of the market, with several market players witnessing financial downturns.

Industries, such as oil & gas and manufacturing, heavily invested in strengthening enterprise cybersecurity solutions amid the rising cases of cyber-attacks during COVID-19. Attributable to recent cyber-attacks on the oil and gas industry, large oil and gas corporations have been forced to implement complete data diode solutions that allow for efficient data flow while maintaining security.

In May 2021, one of the major U.S. fuel pipeline operating companies, Colonial Pipeline, blocked its entire network after a cyber-attack caused by ransomware. The shutdown raised fear of a price spike ahead of the busy driving season and the susceptibility of the U.S. energy infrastructure vulnerable to hackers.

With the rise of digital transformation and the large volume of data processed and produced, as well as the growing demand for remote access and online services, cyber threats have become more prevalent. Over the forecast period, the long-term growth of the global market will be driven by the upfront growth of the manufacturing and oil & gas industries. Moreover, government agencies, critical infrastructure, aerospace, and defense companies are increasingly relying on data diode technology to protect their data and safeguard important assets. This, as in result, is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

Growing Trend of IIoT will Contribute to Market Growth

The IIoT has ushered in a digital revolution in industrial technologies. As the internet becomes more widely accessible, the cost of connectivity drops and more devices with built-in Wi-Fi and sensors become available; the industry may benefit from linking industrial devices to construct smart equipment, machines, processes, service vehicles, and more. The IIoT integrates traditional industrial infrastructure with cutting-edge technologies such as edge computing, machine learning, cloud computing, and mobility. The IIoT aids organizations in improving industrial operations to increase output and efficiency. As industries and manufacturing plants become more connected with the growth of IIoT technologies, the possibilities of data theft and cyber-attacks remain the same.

The data diode provides enhanced security for critical infrastructures that rely on sending business data over the internet, such as the chemical industry, manufacturing, oil and gas, and other industries. Employees and security teams may monitor data flow in production systems without exposing the main network to assaults.

Furthermore, electronics manufacturing companies are realizing the importance of protecting mission-critical data. Thus, the expansion of IIoT across sectors is projected to provide market participants with opportunities to improve their solution offerings and embrace a customer-centric business strategy.


Rising Prevalence of Major Cyber-attacks on the Oil & Gas Industry to Drive Market Growth

The digitization and penetration of advanced technology in the oil & gas sector have exposed it to various cyber-attacks, including phishing, data breaches, DDoS, and ransomware. Connecting the oil and gas business to more technologically sophisticated solutions such as IIoT has enhanced output and reduced costs. Still, it has also exposed the industry to fatal cyber-attacks. These malicious intrusions can halt a company's operations, resulting in huge financial, reputational, and, in some cases, human life losses, as well as environmental disasters. For instance;

  • In February 2023, Encino Energy, a private oil and natural gas producer in the U.S., reported investigating and remediating a recent cyber-attack.

Such incidents have prompted oil & gas and critical infrastructure companies to strengthen cyber-security measures to safeguard their critical data from potential threats and vulnerability from third-party sources. To offer efficient solutions, key players operating in the market are taking key initiatives to serve companies from data thefts and cyber-attacks better. For instance,

  • In September 2021, Forcepoint, a global cybersecurity and technology company, launched Forcepoint Data Diode, a hardware solution that enables automated and rapid data flow while ensuring security and compliance. Forcepoint Data Diodes provide versatile, easy-to-use, and cost-effective protection for networks, devices, and other digital assets from external cyber-attacks.

Such initiatives by key players are expected to spread awareness about the advantages of data diode in various industries and drive the data diode solution market growth.


Associated High Costs and Budget Constraints for Small & Medium-sized Enterprises to Hinder Market Growth

The industrial control system has grown over time to encompass a varied range of networked devices that help industry employees understand and analyze the operational environment. With the rise of sophisticated threats and smarter attack tools, better cyber-security solutions are necessary to combat cyber-attacks. Implementation of data diode solutions requires significant upfront investments to set up field-level devices and replace aging cyber-security infrastructure. Also, companies planning to integrate these solutions into their security infrastructure need to make sure that servers, applications, and systems are interconnected.

Cybersecurity and management authorities are particularly concerned about high post-deployment operation and maintenance costs. In addition, limited budgets make it difficult for government agencies and SMEs to deploy advanced technologies and solutions. As a result, market development is anticipated to be restrained in the coming years due to the high initial cost of adopting data diodes.


By Type Analysis

Ruggedized Data Diode to Capture Largest Market Share owing to its Effective Operating Capabilities in Challenging Environments

Based on type, the market is classified into regular data diode and ruggedized data diode.

The ruggedized data diode segment captured the largest market share and is expected to maintain its growth rate over the forecast period. The growth of this segment would occur on account of its effective operating capabilities in challenging environments such as high temperatures and humid environments. These data diodes are expected to gain momentum as companies opt for cyber-security solutions that offer redundant power supply and uniform access over data flow.

The regular data diode segment is expected to witness significant demand. The growth of this diode will be driven by increasing demand among major oil & gas and manufacturing companies.
