Solid-state Drive Market worth over $125bn by 2026

  • Published Date: June 8, 2020

Solid-state Drive (SSD) Market size is set to surpass USD 125 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The market growth is attributed to the increasing requirement for storage capacity in computers and improvements in older interface protocols for transferring data. Earlier the data transfer in Hard Disk Drives (HDD) were transferred over network protocols such as Parallel ATA (PATA), Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE), and Small Computer System Interface (SCSI). Today, hard disk drives are being replaced by solid-state drives in almost every market.

The rise in Big Data through enterprise and cloud applications with the growing demand for faster storage has resulted in the increasing development of large-storage SSD at a low cost. Increasing penetration of internet users worldwide, upsurge in e-commerce platform, and rising media volume data transfer are anticipated to stimulate the industry growth. The growing adoption of smartphones and laptops allows users to generate large amount of content and digital data. This will increase the requirement of high storage capacity devices, accelerating the market expansion among consumer applications.
