Worldwide Hard Disk Drive Forecast, 2018–2022

By: John RydningResearch Vice President, Hard Disk Drives and Semiconductors

Abstract

This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the worldwide hard disk drive market.

"HDD industry revenue will decline at a much slower rate than HDD unit shipments because of the ongoing shift in the mix of HDD shipments, with the enterprise market making up a higher percentage of HDD demand and revenue each year through 2022," according to John Rydning, research vice president for Hard Disk Drives. "Although SSD adoption will continue to impact HDD unit shipments negatively, growing demand for high-capacity and low-cost HDD storage, especially from cloud service provider customers, is helping stabilize the revenue outlook for the HDD industry."
