Research and Markets: Global Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Market 2014-2018: Seagate Technology, Toshiba Corp, Western Digital Dominates the Market

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3t85lj/global_hard_disk) has announced the addition of the "Global Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Market 2014-2018: Seagate Technology, Toshiba Corp, Western Digital Dominates the Market" report to their offering.

One of the major trends witnessed in the market is the miniaturization of HDDs and the incorporation of HDDs with more storage capacity. The market vendors are developing HDDs with reduced size. Moreover, vendors are increasing the area density of HDDs, which leads to the reduction of form factors from 3.5 inch to 2.5 inch. Thus, HDDs are becoming smaller and denser, and have improved performance. For instance, the 500 GB HDD capacity has been increased to 640 GB, retaining the form factor of 3.5 inch. Similarly, the 320 GB HDD capacity has been increased to 375 GB, retaining the form factor of 2.5 inch.

According to the report, there are several drivers in the Global HDD market, the most important of which is the growing demand for HDDs in the Enterprise sector. Most enterprises prefer to store their data in HDDs because they allow easy availability of data in a physical device.

Further, the report states that one of the key challenges is the growth of the Tablet market. The increasing adoption of tablet PCs affects the Global PC market, which ultimately has a negative impact on the Global HDD market.
