By Interface- Segment Analysis
During the forecast period theSerial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA)segment is expected to grow at a CAGR7.0%.The wide demand for solid state drive interface SATA is largely due to low-cost interface design. The SATA interface also provides lower cable size and cost, faster data transfer through higher signaling rates and more efficient transmission through an I/O queuing protocol, lower cable size and cost, faster data transfer through higher signaling levels and more effective transmission through an I/O queuing protocol.With SATA SSD, capable of working with any desktop or laptop computer, even if that computer is a decade old,such SATA characteristics are expected to fuel solid state drive market growth.
By Technology – Segment Analysis
The Triple-Level Cell(TLC) is expected to grow at a higher CAGR of8.3% during the forecast period.Along with high storage capacity, TLC provides the cheap solutions, This leads to rising TLC solid state drive being implemented in consumer applications such as notebooks, tablets and others.TLC solid state drive registered as the top-selling consumer-grade product on the solid state drive customer market, particularly for the application segment of desktop PCs. TLC solid state drivers offers and delivers high storage capacity which is mainly used in consumer-grade goods and this is expected to boost the market growth solid state drive.
By Geography – Segment Analysis
North America currently dominates the global Enterprise Solid State Drive market with a share of more than 39%. Leading companies in North America offer the most advanced SSDs to different sectors as specialized storage solutions. In order to gain a competitive advantage and increase their company efficiency, businesses in America are increasing their spending on IT infrastructure. Therefore, the use of SSDs in IT infrastructure systems has been promoted strongly to save time, speed up data transfer and achieve high level performance.Furthermore, conventional hard disk drive replacement rates with solid state drive are high in North America.Development of 5G technology is projected to lead to consumer demand in the United States and Canada. The Spectrum Frontiers Order of the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has paved the foundations for the implementation of 5G technology in the United States by end 2020. Consequently, most small and large businesses and cloud storage firms in the US are accelerating the transition from hard disk drives (HDDs) to solid-state drives (SSDs) to be ready for 5G and this will help in the growth of solid state drive market.
