This IDC study presents an updated outlook at the SSD market through 2021. The SSD industry dynamics associated with 2017 and the end-device forecast changes are aggregated, analyzed, and applied to IDC's long-term SSD forecast in terms of units, revenue, and petabytes for each consumption category of SSDs (client, enterprise, and commercial).

"SSD industry revenue is projected to increase by 51% YoY in 2017, thanks to strong demand and favorable SSD pricing for the SSD suppliers," said Jeff Janukowicz, research vice president for Solid State Drives and Enabling Technologies. "SSDs are a key technology enabler in the digital transformation across businesses, and accelerating use of SSDs in enterprise and client systems will lead to worldwide SSD revenue growing at a 2016–2021 CAGR of 14.8%."
