SSD sales to grow 7x by 2017

Posted on Wednesday, May 08 2013 @ 11:45:42 CEST by

Research firm iHS iSuppli anticipates sales of solid state disks will rise by a factor of seven by 2017. Sales of SSDs are anticipated to hit 227.1 million units in 2017, up from 31.1 million in 2012, while sales of HDDs are anticipated to decline from 475.4 million units to 409.9 million units in the same time frame.
The divergent outlook for the two products will allow SSDs to climb and claim 36% of the PC storage market in 2017, up from just 6% in 2012, IHS said. At the same time, HDDs will see their long-term dominance in PCs erode, with their share falling to 64% in 2017, down from a commanding 94% in 2012.

For SSDs, the major factors driving growth in 2013 will be ultrabooks and other ultrathin notebook PCs, especially as Intel's upcoming Haswell processors bring about a robust combination of performance and efficiency for the superthin computers, said Fang Zhang, analyst for storage systems at IHS, in a statement. "In the coming years, ultrabooks and ultrathins - combined with appealing touch-screen displays and convertible form factors - are likely to become more compelling as the machines attempt to lure consumers away from smartphones and tablets, boosting demand for SSDs used in these systems," Zhang continued.
