Worldwide Hard Disk Drive Component Forecast, 2021–2025


Edward Burns

This IDC study analyzes the hard disk drive component market for 2020-2025.

"HDD suppliers continue to push the limits of mechanical engineering while making progress on areal density using both energy assist and conventional magnetic recording technologies," according to Ed Burns, research director, Hard Disk Drive and Storage Technologies research at IDC. "And while the implementation of the newer energy assist technologies appears to be slower than expected, it will be important to see the introduction of heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) and microwave-assisted magnetic recording (MAMR) into high-volume production, enabling average area density to resume its historical growth trajectory so that the industry can adequately supply the insatiable appetite for petabytes in the cloud."
