A solid state hard drive or SSD refers to a data storage device that relies on an assembly of integrated circuits to store data. Unlike hard disk drives (HDDs), there are no moving components in SSDs. To retain data without power, SSDs use NAND-flash memory chips. As SSDs are faster than HDDs, they are used across iPads, mobile devices, notebook PCs, and others.
The growing demand for SSDs in mobile and handheld devices such as notebooks as primary storage has boosted the growth of the global solid state drive market. The benefits offered by SSDs over HDDs have further supported the market’s growth. As SSD has no moving part and relies on flash memory to store data, it offers better performance compared to HDD. HDD has magnetic platters that are subjected to wear and tear with usage. The introduction of the cloud technology is expected to steer the growth of the SSD market during the forecast period.
However, the high cost of SSD compared to HDD might hamper the growth of the market. Hybrid systems with HDD are anticipated to present new opportunities for the market’s growth in the years to come. The global SSD market is witnessing consolidation within the storage industry with investments across enterprise SSD product development. The market players are focusing on the development of higher capacity SSDs.
In terms of end user, the report segments the global solid state drive market into enterprise SSDs and client SSDs. The client SSD segment dominated the overall market in 2014 and accounted for 88.1% of the overall revenue.
The report studies the global solid state drive market across five key regions: Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. In 2014, Asia Pacific dominated the overall market and held 57.5% of the market. During the forecast horizon, the region is anticipated to register the fastest growth owing to the growing demand from countries such as China, Taiwan, and Japan.
