Storage Segment is the largest segment driving the growth of Solid State Drive (SSD) Market




The global Solid State Drive (SSD) Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 47.6 Mn or Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
A solid state drive (SSD) is a data storage device that uses solid-state memory to store persistent data non-volatily. SSDs offer faster read and write speeds, have no moving parts, produce less noise and heat, and consume less power than electromechanical hard disk drives (HDDs). These advantages have increased their adoption for use in applications such as laptops, data centers, and cloud computing.

Market key trends:
One of the key trend in the solid state drive market is increasing demand and adoption of Solid State Drive (SSD) Market in data centers for cloud infrastructure services. The cloud infrastructure services require massive storage and faster data access and processing speeds. SSDs being more durable, reliable and faster than HDDs are increasingly being used in servers and data storage systems in cloud computing environments. Additionally, technology advancements such as 3D NAND and NVMe have increased density and performance of SSDs. This has further boosted their demand from data center operators and cloud service providers for applications demanding high-performance storage.
SWOT Analysis
Strength: SSDs have no moving parts which makes them more shock resistant and durable than traditional hard disk drives. They also provide faster read/write speeds.
Weakness: SSDs still have lower storage capacities than HDDs and higher costs per gigabyte of storage. The data stored can deteriorate over time due to limited number of write/erase cycles of SSD.
Opportunity: Growth of data centers and popularity of cloud computing is driving the demand for high-performance SSD storage solutions. The declining prices of SSDs compared to earlier years also provide an opportunity.
Threats: emergence of other newer and faster non-volatile memory technologies like Intel’s optical storage may threaten SSD market in long run. Price fluctuations in NAND flash memory also act as a threat as it is a major component of SSDs.

Key Takeaways
The global Solid State Drive (SSD) market is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting a CAGR of 16.% over the forecast period, due to increasing data volumes across industries.
Regional analysis: Asia Pacific dominated the global SSD market in 2022 and is expected to maintain its leading position during the forecast period as well. This can be attributed to the presence of manufacturing facilities of major SSD companies and growing demand for data storage in industries such as IT & telecommunications in countries such as China, South Korea and Japan. North America is also expected to offer lucrative opportunities with the rising demand from datacenters and cloud storages.
Key players: Some of the prominent players operating in the SSD market are Teclast Electronics Co. Limited, Intel Corporation, Transcend Information Inc., Samsung Group, Kingston Technology Corporation, Micron Technology Inc., ADATA Technology Co. Ltd., Western Digital Corporation, SK Hynix Inc., and Seagate Technology LLC. Samsung captured the largest market share in 2021 owing to their expertise and strong distribution network. However, other players are also focusing on expanding their product portfolio and global footprint through strategic investments and collaborations
