European Enterprise Infrastructure Storage Forecast, 2021–2026

This IDC Market Forecast provides historical data (2017–2021) and forecast data (2022–2026) for the European external enterprise storage systems markets. The forecast represents an annual view of the quarterly forecasts released in June 2022 in IDC's 1Q22 European Quarterly Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker. Forecast and historical data focus on end-user consumption of three categories of enterprise storage systems: external OEM, internal OEM, and "other," which covers cumulative shipments of systems sold directly to customers by original design manufacturers (ODMs). For each of these categories, IDC has estimated value (end-user spending), terabytes, and price per gigabyte.

"Europe is being affected by much uncertainty due to the Russia-Ukraine War and its broader economic and energy impact — and buyers are rightly being cautious. 2022 will be a challenging year for the ESS market in Europe due to a significant decline in sales in Central and Eastern Europe ," said Luis Fernandes, research manager, European Infrastructure Strategies at IDC. "This caution also presents an opportunity for growth for flexible as-a-service consumption models from vendors, either directly or in partnership with colocation providers as this sales motion typically requires less commitment and initial investment by buyers and could be used as a launch pad for new storage projects."
