A Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a device which is connected to a network that allows storage and revival of data from a centralized location for permitted network users and varied clients. Data is a fragile asset for companies in the present world, and without real-time and easy access to their data, companies may not be able to provide services to the customers efficiently.

Poor customer service and loss of customers can happen if the desired information is unavailable within a company. NAS devices are flexible and can be easily scaled if additional storage requirement arises. Low price and usage with cloud solutions are additional benefits, which is boosting the demand for these devices. At the same time, the complexity of the operating system and low processing power is hindering the market growth. Lack of technological knowledge among end-users and difficulty in transferring huge data sets are some of the other key challenges to the NAS market growth.

Global Network Attached Storage Market is projected to generate US$9.337 billion in revenues in 2021, increasing from US$4.019 billion in 2016 at a CAGR of 18.36%. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest demand for NAS devices over the forecast period, led by strong interest in NAS technology as a system to hold onto the benefits of enterprise mobility and BYOD to the expanding base of SMBs in the region.
