Market Research Future (MRFR) Announces the Publication of its Cooked Research Report — Global Network-Attached Storage (NAS) Market, 2018–2023.
A NAS Market is a file-level storage architecture where the users can access, share, and store data across a network through a centralized disk capacity. The files stored in these devices can be accessed through LAN over Ethernet connections through SMB, CIFS, NCP, FTP, HTTP, and NFS protocols depending upon the clients’ operating system. The NAS devices appear as a single node over a network with a defined IP address. These devices are cost-effective, easy to install, and highly accessible; they offer users with higher reliability, and superior performance with negligible server downtime. Growing demand for secured data storage devices for different applications and increasing utilization of NAS in home applications are some of the major factors driving the growth of network attached storage market. Moreover, increasing BYOD trend among enterprises is expected to boost the growth of the market in the coming years. However, security issues associated with remotely stored data might impact the growth of the market adversely.
Some of the prominent players in the global network-attached storage are Dell EMC (US), HPE (US), IBM Corporation (US), Hitachi Vantara Corporation (US), Netapp Inc. (US), Seagate Technology Public Limited Company (Ireland), Cisco Systems Inc. (US), Western Digital Corp. (US), Netgear Inc. (US), QNAP Systems Inc. (Taiwan), Synology Inc. (Taiwan), Buffalo Americas Inc. (Japan), and Space Monkey (US).
The market, by vertical, has been segmented into BFSI, retail, media & entertainment, government, IT & telecommunication, healthcare, manufacturing, energy & utilities and, others. Among these, the IT & telecommunication segment dominated the global NAS market followed by BFSI and retail verticals. In the IT and telecommunication vertical, NAS devices help in reducing the management costs and data center equipment footprint, thereby reducing the floor space, and power and cooling costs.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
The market, by product, has been segmented into high-end/enterprise NAS, midmarket NAS, and low-end/desktop NAS. The high-end/enterprise NAS segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017, followed by the midmarket NAS segment which is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on storage solution, the market has been bifurcated into scale-up NAS and scale-out NAS. The scale-out architecture proves to be beneficial in many ways as it offers large capacity without any limitation, meets the performance demands of key workloads, simplifies deployment and management of resources thereby enhancing the users’ productivity.
