Global HDD capacity to be restored to 80% this quarter

Posted on Friday, February 24 2012 @ 18:18:41 CET by

Industry sources revealed to DigiTimes that global HDD production capacity will increase to 140 - 145 million units this quarter, about 80 percent of the level achieved before the Thai floods wreaked havoc on the HDD production chain.
The global HDD production capacity dropped from 175 million units in the third quarter of 2011 to a bottom of 120-125 million units in the fourth quarter due to the flooding and then began to rise along with restoration efforts, the sources said. Global HDD output is expected to increase to 160 million units in the second quarter of 2012 and further to the original level before the flooding in the third quarter, the sources added.

Due to increased costs of components and materials, HDD prices are likely to rise 30-40% from the level before the floods by the end of 2012, the sources indicated.
