Worldwide IDC Global DataSphere Forecast, 2022–2026: Enterprise Organizations Driving Most of the Data Growth
This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the worldwide IDC Global DataSphere. The worldwide IDC Global DataSphere is a measure of how much new data is created, captured, replicated, and consumed each year. It is forecast by several segments including consumer/enterprise, region, data type, location (core, edge, endpoint), and deployment type (cloud/noncloud) of the technology involved in data generation.
"The Global DataSphere is expected to more than double in size from 2022 to 2026," according to John Rydning, research vice president, IDC's Global DataSphere. "The Enterprise DataSphere will grow more than twice as fast as the Consumer DataSphere over the next five years, putting even more pressure on enterprise organizations to manage and protect the world's data while creating opportunities to activate data for business and societal benefits."
