WD recaptures top spot in HDD market

Posted on Wednesday, August 29 2012 @ 22:22:05 CEST by

The latest HDD marketshare data from IHS iSuppli shows Western Digital has recaptured the top spot as world's largest HDD manufacturer. WD now has a marketshare of 45 percent, while Seagate has 42 percent and Toshiba a mere 13 percent. Full details at EE Times.
Western Digital Corp. regained the top spot among hard disk drive (HDD) suppliers in the second quarter, six months after falling behind rival Seagate Technology Corp. in the wake of flooding in Thailand that forced several facility closures, market research firm IHS iSuppli said Tuesday (Aug. 28).

Western Digital produced about 71 million HDD units in the second quarter, generating record revenue for the company of about $4.8 billion, according to a market brief from IHS. Western Digital's production for the second quarter includes production from Hitachi GST, which Western Digital acquired earlier this year, IHS said.

Meanwhile, Seagate shipped about 65.9 million HDD units in the second quarter, IHS said. Seagate also generated a company record $4.5 billion in sales, according to IHS.
