Worldwide Hard Disk Drive Component Forecast, 2022–2026


Edward Burns

This IDC study analyzes the hard disk drive component market for 2021–2026.

"In an environment of very strong enterprise petabyte demand growth, HDD suppliers are working to adapt HDD product mix to meet the needs of their largest customers, with for example new SMR designs and increased shipments of SMR drives, providing economical capacity increases in an environment of slower areal density gains," according to Ed Burns, research director of Hard Disk Drive and Storage Technologies research at IDC. "And while volume production of HAMR again seems to be on the horizon within the next two to three years, this will be a key milestone for HDD suppliers to demonstrate that they can adequately supply the rapidly growing appetite for petabytes in the cloud for years to come."
