Its know issue 

In salesforce classic when creating a new image hyperlink and setting the target to blank this will open the link in a new window. Same behaviour is expected in lightning but instead the new link is opened within the same window.
If you want in new tab .. write the custom code

Hi raj,

Thanks for reply,

This field is in Standard Knowledge Article object, we cannot create buttons and action, to call custom Code (OR) and create vf page and embed in standard page layout,

Any other solution to use custom code in knowledge article object to open hyperlink formula in new tab

Hi All,

If You can Active the Critical Update "Lightning Experience Honors Target Values for Hyperlinks in Formula Fields" yours link will open in new window in Lightning.
