Report Description

A HDD is a device used to store and retrieve data. A HDD consists of one or more stiff, rapidly rotating disks that are covered with magnetic material; these disks have magnetic heads that can read and write data to and from their surfaces. HDDs are very important devices for the secondary storage of data in computers. They are classified as digital, magnetic, non-volatile, random access, and data storage devices. There are two types of HDDs: internal and external. An internal HDD resides within a computer and stores the user’s software and personal files. An external HDD resides outside a computer and is used when the internal HDD memory does not have sufficient storage capacity.

TechNavio’s analysts forecast the Global HDD market will grow at a CAGR of 0.13 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Press Release for “Global Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Market 2014-2018” Report

Commenting on the report, an analyst team said: “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.

The report recognizes the following companies as the key players in Global Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Market: Seagate Technology plc, Toshiba Corp., Western Digital Corp., Buffalo Americas Inc., Dell Inc., Hewlett Packard Co., Lenovo Group Ltd., Transcend Information Inc.

Global DCS Market in the Oil and Gas Industry 2014-2018

A DCS is an automated control system that, rather than being centralized, is distributed across an entire organization. DCSs are distributed in such a way that each component or sub-system of a manufacturing plant is controlled by one or more controllers, thereby providing instructions to different parts of the plant. Thus, instead of having a centrally located control system, each section of the plant has its own control operations. DCSs, hence, enable the effective and efficient control and management of the entire plant. Further, they facilitate a reduction in downtime errors and an increase in the productivity of the plant. DCSs are adopted by various industries such as Oil and Gas, Power, Pharmaceuticals, Pulp and Paper, Aerospace, Automotive, Shipbuilding, Machinery Manufacturing, Co......
