The Global Solid State Drives Market is estimated to be USD 86.6 Mn in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 303.4 Mn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 28.5%.

Certain factors driving the global solid-state drives market are the growing penetration of high-end cloud computing, the increasing implementation of SSDs in data centers, and the advantages of SSDs over HDDs. SSDs with modern interfaces such as PCIe, NVMe, and others have given rise to technological advances in Global Solid-state storage. The adoption of PCIe SSDs for cloud computing is promoted by enhanced features such as high speed and fast data access.

The high up-gradation costs of global solid-state drives and the lack of large-sized SSD model availability are impeding the growth of the industry. Smart SSDs provide an opportunity to commercialize a new style of data processing. To achieve this, hardware and software vendors have to collaborate.

Segments Covered

Based on Interface, the wide demand for SATA interface-based solid-state drive interfaces is largely due to the low-cost design. The SATA interface also provides smaller cable size and cost, faster data transfer via higher signaling rates, and more efficient I/O queuing protocol transfer.

Based on Form Factor, the Half-Height, Half-Length (HHHL); or even larger type factor, Full-Height Half-Length (FHHL) market is projected to rise at the highest pace during the forecast period. Such form factors provide high efficiency as PCIe bus (with direct contact) offers a very low latency.

Based on Technology, TLC Planar's global solid-state drives segment held the largest market. The price per GB of SSDs is becoming cheaper with the change in technology from SLC to MLC and from MLC to TLC. Among all other technologies, TLC, therefore, provides the cheapest solutions, along with high storage density. In increasing use of TLX in consumer applications such as notebooks, tablets, and others, leads to the growing adoption of TLC SSDs.

Based on End User, the Automotive market for global solid-state drives is projected to rise at the highest rate. The growing demand for automotive infotainment systems and next-generation connected cars is expected to fuel the growth of the market for Global Solid-state drives. Connected car apps require high-performance graphics, communications, and data storage, and all of these requirements are met by SSDs. Hence, the application of SSDs in the automotive sector is high.

Based on Geography, North America contributes to the maximum share of the total global solid-state drive market. Key market players in the North American region provides the most advanced SSDs to different industries as advanced storage solutions. To gain a competitive advantage and improve their business competitiveness, companies are increasing their investment in IT infrastructure. Therefore, there has been a strong drive to save time, speed up data transfer, and achieve high-performance standards using SSDs in IT infrastructure products.

The Global Solid State Drives Market is segmented based on Interface, Form Factor, Technology, Storage, End-user, and Geography.
