This study, forecasts the revenue and unit shipment in the Japan tape storage market from 2016 to 2021, based on the market performance in 2016. For the purpose of this forecast, IDC divides the Japan tape storage market into two submarkets: the Japan tape drive market and the Japan tape automation market. The Japan tape drive market forecasts are according to class and capacity, while the Japan tape automation market forecasts are according to class and number of cartridge volumes. "Tape storage with excellent long-term storage capability, low-power consumption, and low gigabyte unit price continues to be reevaluated as the need for low-cost, large-capacity, and long-term archive grows. Offline backup using tape storage is also being reevaluated in terms of security measures. Thus, storage vendors must continue to differentiate tape storage solutions from disk-based solutions by presenting solutions that harnessed the benefits of tape storage and engaged in developing new demands," says Masaaki Moriyama, group director, IDC Japan.
