Overview of the peripheral component interconnect express (PCle) SSD market
Technavio's peripheral component interconnect express SSD market report has predicted that the market will grow steadily during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of more than 33% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increase in demand for cloud-based data centers as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Data centers process and store business information and play a significant role in cloud operations. Due to their benefits such as scalability, reliability, and cost reduction, several small- and medium-sized enterprises have started to prefer running their business operations through cloud service providers (CSPs), colocations, and web-hosting cloud data. The increasing demand for CSPs will result in the requirement of automation in cloud-based data centers resulting in a decline in cloud storage costs. This, in turn, will lead to an increasing demand for public cloud storage where three-fourth of the enterprises across the world will be using cloud data centers to operate their businesses. And since PCIe SSDs have a faster response time, their demand will subsequently increase due to the augmented demand for cloud data centers.
The emergence of 3D NAND will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market during the next four years. NAND flash architectures are capable of storing large amounts of data and in addition to consuming less power and offering better endurance than a planner architecture. Moreover, 3D NAND technology has several other benefits, such as the capacity to pack 32 or 64 times the capacity per die, allowing solid-state drive (SSDs) to increase their capacity much beyond the sizes of the regular hard drives. This will subsequently increase the demand for 3D NANDs in the market which will encourage vendors to invest in the development of 3D NAND fab facilities.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The market is characterized by the presence of a number of vendors where the key players such as Intel, Samsung, Micron, Seagate, and Western Digital account for a majority of the market shares and dominate the market. The market is currently in its infant stage, and the adoption of this technology is largely restricted to the developed regions such as Western Europe, North America, and Asia (Japan and China). Since the market is dominated by a few major players, the level of competition among vendors is low. Vendors in the market mainly compete on the basis of factors such as product pricing, innovation, quality and performance, and support services. The need to improve reliability and security will increase the adoption of PCIe SSDs by organizations and as a result, the vendor competition in the market will intensify in the coming years.
According to the peripheral component interconnect express (PCle) SSD market analysis report, the leading vendors in the market are -
The other prominent vendors in the market are ADATA, Apacer, IBM, Kingston Technology, LSI Corporation, Memblaze, Nimbus Data Systems, OCZ, SK Hynix, and Violin Memory.
