Solid State Drives Market Rugged Expansion Foreseen by 2021

Solid State Drives Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2015 – 2021
A solid-state drive (SSD) is also known as electronic disk or known as a solid-state disk. It is a data
storage device that uses assemblies of integrated circuit as memory to store the data.It uses
electronic interfaces that are well-matched with conventional input/output hard disk drives, thus
allowing simple replacement in usual applications.
SSDs does not contain any moving components. This differentiates them from conventional disks
such as hard disk drives and floppy disks. SSDs are usually more resistant to physical shock, have
lower access time, run silently, and have less latency compared with electromechanical disks.
Another advantage offered by SSD’s is its steady performance. HDD’s suffer from data
fragmentation which is not the case with SSD’s owing to the use of integrated circuits as a
replacement for of spinning platters. This leads to lesser data access latency and need for running
defragmentation programs that is used to manage the storage location on a HDD. However, in spite
of continuous declining price of SSDs since 2012, SSDs are still approximately six to seven times
more expensive than HDDs.

There is a developing trend in the solid state drive industry to remove endurance specifications in
the data sheets building it extremely complicated for OEMs to precisely estimate an SSD's life
expectancy. In addition, the SSD market is continuously shifting towards consolidation owing to
availability of limited market, cost incurred for sales and promotion and high cost of research and
development. The market for SSDs limited compared to the size of the storage market. Narrow
market and the huge cost of having sales and marketing staff that all making effort to sell into the
same market is a problem for the companies.
Benefits offered by the SSD’s over HDD such as reliable operation, low rate of latency, consistent
performance and others are the key drivers for growing adoption of SSD’s. In addition, proliferation
of Ultrathin and Ultrabook PC and PC tablets drives the SSD market. However consistency of low
rate of latency offered by SSD and compatibility issue is hampering the growth of this market. The
key appeal of solid state drives is its low latency; although, it is not obtainable every time. Typical
solid state drive latencies are a couple of hundred microseconds however some operations may be
interrupted by internal tasks of device, and its latency can go beyond milliseconds or even seconds.
That is slower as compared with hard disk drives.
The market is segmented by SSD type and end user industries. Type include single level cell (SLC)
and multi level cell (MLC). End-user industries include banking, finance, defense, data centers/IT
and government. Organizations such as include equity trading companies, telecommunication
organization, video editing and streaming media firms are expected to get the major benefit of high
data speed offered by SSD’s.
