The global hard disk market is estimated to reach USD 93.88 billion by 2026 with a CAGR 6.5% during the forecast period (2018–2026)
Demand for solid-state drives is gaining momentum around the globe. SSDs are much more capable than traditional HDDs. SDDs are faster and have far superior storage capacity. They use flash memory to store data, which in turn provides better performance and reliability in end-use applications. The adoption of SSD has further gained pace due to the introduction of affordable SSDs by key vendors. SSDs are increasingly being used in laptops, notebooks, and smartphones. Also, with the growth in the shipment of smartphones and laptops, the demand for SSDs is further increasing. Due to the growing demand for SSDs, the manufacturers are focusing on their production, in order to effectively meet the demand. For instance, in 2018, Western Digital announced its long-term plan to increase the production of SSDs. The company has planned to expand SSD manufacturing in Penang, Malaysia. Similarly, in 2018, Samsung announced the mass production of the industry’s first 4-bit (QLC, quad-level cell) 4-terabyte (TB) SATA solid-state drive (SSD) for consumers. Due to a considerable shift to SSDs among individual consumers and cloud service providers, manufacturers are increasing the production of SSDs, which in turn is increasing the overall hard disk market.
