End users have become accustomed to both smart card security, and the USB token form factor. It has taken years for the industry to merge them, and to develop secure USB tokens, bringing the security of smart cards in a form factor familiar to PC users.

 

Secure USB tokens are used in a variety of market segments:

  • Secure mass storage brings users high mass storage capacities, along with security,
  • Enterprise security allows IT managers to run a global security policy, by equipping employees with secure USB tokens,
  • Online banking provides security in internet banking, which is now highly required as passwords, and static methods have proved to be easily defeated,
  • eGovernment is a global trend started with ePassports and eIDs, secure USB tokens bring a convenient form factor for remote citizen authentication,
  • Transport is where secure USB tokens bring the convenience on contactless communications with the ability for end users to connect the device on their own PC.

 

In 2010, the total market for secure USB tokens amounts to 48.9 million units, or EUR 444 million. As they were the starting point of the development of secure USB tokens, secure mass storage and online banking combined represent 91% of this total.

 

The next few years will see the emergence of new segments. Enterprise security will take off with the adoption of secure USB tokens being driven by an increasing sensitivity to risk, and a better integration with operating systems. Secure USB tokens in Transport, which are now a pilot stage, will be adopted by several cities before the end of the period, making the segment represent larger volumes. And secure USB tokens will start to be adopted by governments for eGovernment applications to cope with a higher demand for eGovernment services from citizens.

 

As a part of the cost of secure USB tokens comes from memory, we anticipate the ASP (average selling price) will drop over the period.

 

In 2014, secure mass storage and online banking together will only account for 74.2% of sales. In 2014, the total available market for secure USB tokens will be over 150 million units per year, and represent a sales level surpassing EUR 1 billion.  As secure USB tokens have a long life expectancy, the over 400 million tokens installed base will be an essential infrastructure the development of new services.
