Adoption of the medium and low-end system by the SMB end-users will boost sales in the global consumer and SMB NAS market
The consumer and SMB NAS market share by end-users is segmented into consumer, SOHO, SMBs, and SMEs. SMBs dominated the majority of the industry share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of around 12% during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of the medium and high-end system of 4-bay and 5-bay form factors is propelling the growth of this segment. The integration of multiple 10 GbE ports and the introduction of 25 GbE and 50 GbE ports in the rackmount appliances will boost the adoption of these systems in the global industry. The average costs of 4-bay rackmount diskless systems cost around $600 to $800, with the addition of two 10 TB hard drives at an overall CAPEX of around $1,400 in the global consumer NAS market. The rising data storage requirements for businesses, high cost in use of cloud-based storage platforms, development of smart workplace, and increasing awareness towards the availability of cheaper and efficient alternatives to cloud storage will increase the adoption of these applications among SMBs.
High capacity HDD ranging from 750 Gb to 12 TB to transform the global consumer and SMB NAS market
5-Bay occupied the largest consumer NAS market share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of approximately 8% during the forecast period. The introduction of 4-Bay and 5-Bay diskless systems equipped with up to 5 HDD of capacity ranging from 750 Gb to 12 TB for each HDD, can provide a total capacity of up to 60 TB, through five 12TB HDDs is propelling the growth of this segment. The extensive use of these form factors to store and share files such as video, photo, audio and others at home and small office environment by consumers, SOHO, and SMB end-users will boost the demand for these products. It is estimated that almost all 4-bay and 5-bay systems will be able to support SSD cache by 2020. The minimum DRAM capacity ideal for optimal performance of these drives is 2 GB, where there are also rackmount 4-bay appliances powered by 8 GB of DDR3 or DDR4 memory. The growing demand for these systems by professional small office users will result in the growth of this segment.
Deployment of the new data center in Canada to propel the development of the global consumer and SMB NAS market
The global consumer and SMB NAS market share by geography are divided into North America, Europe, APAC, Latin America, and MEA. North America controlled almost half of the industry share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of over 8% during the forecast period. The presence of multiple SMEs who are colocating spaces in the data center and are focusing on procuring infrastructure within their budget to strengthen every aspect of their business operations will augment the growth in North America. The US and Canada are the largest revenue generators in the North America consumer and SMB network-attached storage market. The increasing investment in video analytics and the installation of high-resolution cameras is propelling the demand for these applications in the North American region. The growing storage need for personal data, home automation, and video surveillance data by end-users in North America will boost the adoption of network-attached storage.
