Worldwide Hard Disk Drive 3Q19 Preliminary Shipment Results

By: Edward BurnsResearch Director, Hard Disk Drive and Storage Technologies, John RydningResearch Vice President, Hard Disk Drives and Semiconductors


This IDC Market Perspective provides a preliminary unit shipment range for worldwide hard disk drive (HDD) units by HDD drive class and estimated supplier market share for 3Q19.

"HDD unit shipments were quite strong in 3Q19, not only because of 14-week fiscal quarters for Seagate and Western Digital but also because of strong HDD demand from enterprise customers," according to John Rydning, research vice president, Worldwide Hard Disk Drives. "Improving HDD demand from enterprise customers is helping to offset weakening demand for client HDDs from PC and CE customers, and this will continue to be the theme for HDD industry participants in 2020."
