Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “One of the major trends in the market is the increasing adoption of video surveillance services by end-users because of increasing adoption of home security services. The storage of video requires large storage space and fast data transmission. NAS appliances allow remote access to the stored data; this is a major advantage for the end-users. Further, since many NAS appliances have an in-built feature of automatic data backup, end-users rely heavily on the technology.”

According to the report, the increasing growth in volumes of personal data produced is the major growth driver. Individual consumers are witnessing a rapid increase in their personal data, especially in volume of unstructured data, leading to an increasing need for storage space. Data sources include data generated from video and audio files, applications, cloud-based data, social network data, and device data.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is a lack of technical knowledge among end-users. Although NAS appliances have a simple storage mechanism, a considerable amount of user interaction is required to establish efficient storage mechanisms.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
