"The popularity of NVMe M.2 SSDs in the consumer sector, and the significant performance gains provided by NVMe U.2 drives, have motivated enterprise and cloud customers to adopt NVMe technology as their primary storage media." - Michael Heumann, lead analyst for G2M Research
SAN DIEGO, NVMe Developer Days Conference (PRWEB) December 05, 2018
G2M Research™ today announced the release of its Fall 2018 NVM Express® (NVMe™) Market Sizing Report, which characterizes the burgeoning NVMe market. The latest report extends the NVMe market forecast into 2022, and provides a spotlight on the growing NVMe/NVMe-oF market ecosystem. With this latest report, G2M Research is offering a new NVMe Ecosystem Snapshot section of the report free of charge.
“The NVMe market and the associated ecosystem continue to grow faster than conventional wisdom had expected,” said Michael Heumann, lead analyst for G2M Research and managing partner of G2M Communications, Inc. “The popularity of NVMe M.2 SSDs in the consumer sector, and the significant performance gains provided by NVMe U.2 drives, have motivated enterprise and cloud customers to adopt NVMe technology as their primary storage media. We expect that NVMe SSDs will represent the majority of drives shipped in the enterprise in 2019.”
The G2M Research NVMe Market Sizing Report is the only market research report that provides a comprehensive forecast of the entire NVMe ecosystem. Key findings in the Fall 2018 NVMe Market Sizing Report include:
- NVMe Solid-state Drives (SSDs): The market for NVMe SSDs (U.2, M.2, and PCI AOCs) will reach $9 billion by 2022, growing from just under $2B in 2017.
- NVMe-based All-flash Arrays (AFAs): More than 60% of AFAs will utilize NVMe storage media by 2022, and more than 30% of all AFAs will use NVMe over Fabric (NVMe-oF) in either front-side (connection to host) and/or back-side (connection to expansion shelves) fabrics in the same timeframe.
- NVMe Storage Appliances: In their bid to match the performance of AFAs, nearly 80% of storage appliances will provide storage bays for removable NVMe drives (either U.2 or ESDFF) by 2022.
- NVMe over Fabric (NVMe-oF) Adapters: The market for NVMe-oF adapters will exceed 1.75 million units by 2022, and the bulk of the revenue will be for offloaded NVMe-oF adapters (either FPGA or SoC based adapters).
The NVMe Market Sizing Report is available on a fee-based subscription basis. The Fall 2018 NVMe Market Sizing Report abstract, can be found at http://www.g2minc.com/research.
A new offering with the Fall 2018 NVMe Market Sizing Report is the G2M Research NVMe Ecosystem Snapshot, which delineates the companies and products for each of the key NVMe market sectors (servers, storage appliances, AFAs, SSDs, and NVMe-oF adapters). The NVMe Ecosystem Snapshot is available free of charge for download for those who register with G2M Research (https://g2mresnvmesnapshot.gr8.com/).
