Market Definition:

The Global USB Blocker Market size is estimated to be USD 2.71 billion in 2019 and is predicted to reach USD 7.89 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 10.2% from 2020-2030.

USB Blockers are used to prevent hackers installing or executing any malicious code to access sensitive data and thereby eliminate the risk of infection in phones or tablets through malwares. There are various types of blockers available in the market, for example, USB data blocker or USB condom, USB port blocker, and even USB lockdown software. All of these have different applications and usage.

USB data blocker, also known as condom is a pen drive like device, which is majorly used by mobile users while charging their phones or tablets in public places such as airports, railway stations, hotels or even inside a cab. USB condoms protect sensitive data such as files, photos, or videos from hackers who may attempt to steal data through USB power plugs. It does so by blocking the data pins in the device while allowing the power pins so that the devices will still charge when directly connected to the USB power charging station.

USB port blockers are majorly used in multiuser laptops and PCs to prevent the users from connecting flash drives, MP3 players and other USB mass storage devices to the system in order to copy data or introduce viruses. It is usually made up of a combined key' and 'block' assembly that plugs into the USB port. Administrators simply need to plug the 'keyblock' into the port and release the latch, so that the block remains in port, blocking it from any external connection. In order to remove, user should plug the key back into the block.

USB blocking software is used by companies to prevent its employees from copying sensitive information from the office systems, for their professional or personal gain. Such software usually has the feature of USB whitelisting, wherein all devices except the ones included in the list are blocked. Additionally, when a new device is connected to the system, it notifies the administrator in order to prevent the data theft. USB blocking software is available for all type of OS, such as windows, MAC & android.

Market Dynamics and Trends

There has been a constant increase in the cybercrime incidents around the world. Institutions and public at large are becoming concerned about their data and privacy more than ever before. Data have become a major factor in the making or breaking of any individual or institution. Therefore, hackers are finding out innovative ways to steal private information. Charging mobiles in public places is one of the ways devices become vulnerable to the hackers. In November 2019, a travel advisory from the Los Angeles’ District Attorney’s Office warned travelers about the threat of juice jacking and about the possible dangers of using USB ports in public places.

Such growing awareness, coupled with increasing security concerns has propelled the use of USB blocking devices and software around the world. On the other hand, high adoption rate of newer technologies such as cloud services, virtual reality & others has also created enormous demand for USB blocking software and USB port blockers at organizational level. In near future the overall USB blocker market is going to flourish with surging demand from various end users.

However, relatively low awareness among common public is likely to impede the market growth in near term. Moreover, growing investments in research & development activities will lead to new product innovations and is likely to create ample opportunities in the USB blocker market.
