Worldwide and U.S. Enterprise Storage Systems Forecast Update, 2018–2022

Worldwide and U.S. Enterprise Storage Systems Forecast Update, 2018–2022

This IDC study provides update to the worldwide and U.S. enterprise storage systems forecasts for 2018–2022 along with historical data for 2013–2017. The forecast and historical data focus on end-user consumption of three categories of enterprise storage systems — external, internal, and "other," which covers cumulative shipments of systems sold directly to customers by original design manufacturers. For each of these categories, IDC has estimated value (end-user spending), terabytes, and price per gigabyte."Multiple factors, some short-lived, others having long-term impact, fueled growth of the enterprise storage market in 2018," says Natalya Yezhkova, research director, Storage Systems. "Future growth of the market will depend on storage demands of next-generation workloads, including real-time analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, and Internet of Things. These workloads not only will account for growing share of storage infrastructure but also will contribute to the broad adoption of cloud and edge-based storage resources."
