Confidential computing is a cloud computing solution that isolates sensitive data while processing in a protected CPU enclave. It operates by encrypting sensitive data and storing it in a secured CPU zone that no other computer code can access. Only approved code has access to the content of the protected CPU region, which includes processed data and the code used to process it. As a result, no other software, including the cloud service provider, can access the protected area contents. Confidential computing is accomplished by the use of a hardware-based trusted execution environment, or TEE, which is a secure enclave within a CPU. The inbuilt encryption keys safeguard the TEE; embedded attestation mechanisms ensure that the keys are only accessible to approved application code. If malware or other unauthorized code tries to access the keys, or if the approved code is hacked or otherwise altered, the TEE blocks access to the keys and cancels the computation.

The term "value chain" refers to the various business activities and processes that go into producing a product or providing a service. A value chain includes multiple stages of a product's or service's lifecycle. Value Chain Analysis is a strategic tool for analyzing internal company activities. The value chain of confidential computing includes all of the processes and activities that occur between development of hardware & integration of software and its delivery and support to end users. The value chain of the confidential computing market includes: hardware development, software integration, product manufacturing & testing, deployment & implementation, and customer support.

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic had both positive & negative impact on the global confidential computing market. Since the pandemic began, security and privacy were top priorities. The positive impact included many organizations implementing work-from-home policies and shifting gradually to cloud services. The increased usage of cloud services generated concerns about data security while the data was being processed. However, cloud companies turned to confidential computing to meet regulatory requirements. There were also some negative impacts such as disruptions in global supply chains and an impact on the production and delivery of hardware Component essential for confidential computing solutions. This disruption forced organizations to reevaluate their deployment timeframes, resulting in delays in the adoption of confidential computing technologies.
