Global Bitcoin Mining Hardware Market: Overview
Considering the newly emerging trend of virtual currency, the acceptance of bitcoins is increasing rapidly. People follow a process known as “bitcoin mining” to acquire bitcoins. Bitcoin mining is carried out with the help of bitcoin mining hardware as well as a specially designed bitcoin mining software. The hardware and software are connected to each other and provide miners connection to the blockchain and bitcoin mining pool. Bitcoin mining is a process of mining computers to acquire virtual coins known as bitcoins. Bitcoin mining hardware is manufactured by using the “ASIC,” which stands for Application-Specific Integrated Circuit. The ASIC is specially designed for the process of bitcoin mining. Bitcoin mining is the backbone of the entire bitcoin network. The popularity of bitcoin mining is leading to the rising demand for bitcoin mining hardware. In addition, bitcoin mining hardware manufacturers are focusing on continuous upgradations to attract new customers and boost their market share to the next level. The demand for bitcoin mining hardware is expected to be fuelled as the bitcoin mining process involves the usage of specialised computers with dedicated hardware.

Global Bitcoin Mining Hardware Market: Drivers and Restraints
As the popularity of bitcoins is increasing, the demand for the hardware required for the mining process is also growing rapidly. A major factor driving the bitcoin mining hardware market is the fact that it is an essential tool for minors to mine bitcoins from the network and without it, minors will be unable to acquire bitcoins. Moreover, bitcoin mining hardware ensures security throughout bitcoin mining networks, which makes it difficult for hackers to attack, stop or alter the processes, and this is also boosting the demand for bitcoin mining hardware.
On the other hand, higher prices and lack of awareness regarding bitcoin mining in underdeveloped as well as developing countries are among the most significant factors hampering the growth of the bitcoin mining hardware market over the forecast period.

Global Bitcoin Mining Hardware Market: Evolution
With the rapidly changing requirements from industries as well as enterprises, the demand for more advanced hardware is increasing. Earlier, miners used CPU (Central Processing Unit) for mining, but it was not enough to mine effectively. Later, miners started using the GPU (Graphical Processing Unit) in computer graphic cards. The main advantage of the GPU was that it was able to perform the mining process with data hashing fifty to a hundred times faster. Moreover, GPU consumed less power. After this, miners started to use FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) processors by attaching them to computers through a USB connection. At present, owing to constant developments, miners are using ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) hardware, a modern bitcoin mining hardware that helps perform the mining process at a higher speed as compared to traditional mining processes.
