SSD Controller Market Overview


In 2022, the global SSD controller market size is registered as USD 7.42 billion and during the forecast period, the SSD controller global market size is predicted to reach USD 57.2 Billion and grow at a significant CAGR of 15.30%.


SSD controller refers to the solid-state drive controller. This SSD controller includes the electronics that connect the flash memory elements to the SSD input and output lines. This is also called a processor. Conventional SSD controllers controlled within a single integrated circuit to embed the processor containing a 32-bit microcontroller, RAM, and ROM.

COVID-19 Analysis:


The prevalence of the COVID-19 starts from China and spread all over the world that leads to lockdowns being imposed by the governments of various countries. To control the spread of the coronavirus, this lockdown was strictly imposed and make the people stay in their homes themselves. Most of the companies are started work from home remote working employees to maintain social distance. Data centers serve as central points of access for data and essential business applications in this pandemic situation. Cloud-based data centers are one of the major drivers of the SSD controller market growth.

During the lockdown, along with the remote workers, other people also use the internet. This increased usage of the internet leads to usage of the near data center. These data centers need to process huge volumes of data that require the adoption of hard disk or SSD controllers. Additionally, Cloud computing is an important requirement for remote work employees to access data, important applications, and collaborate with other people. Demand for cloud computing also increases the growth market for SSD controllers. Hence by these factors, we can say that COVID-19 was positively impacted on the SSD controller market.

Market Dynamics:


Drivers:

3D NAND technology brought a revolution in electronic storage is influencing the growth of the SSD controller market. 3D NAND technology provides low power consumption and better endurance compared to planar architecture. Being one-dimensional, these architectures are can store more data by increasing their density which results in an increase in SSD capacity and cost reduction. The rise in demand for cloud-based data centers is one of the major drivers of the SSD controller market.

 

Accessing the cloud consumes very low cost, increasing the demand for public cloud storage and growing demand for data centers that can store a large amount of data. Nowadays, business sectors are more inclined towards cloud-based operations, increasing the number of mega data centers worldwide. This increased number of data centers is propelling the demand for the SSD controllers market. The emergence of NVMe is expecting to fuel market growth.

Restraint:

High dependence on the end products hampers the SSD controllers market growth. SSD is more expensive compared to HDD. The price of 1 TB internal HDD is USD 0.07 per GB and the cost of SSD is nearly 0.30 per GB. Further, the cost of NAND flash memory is reduced. Hence, the higher cost and shorter lifecycle compared to HDD are the major restraining factors of the growth of the market.

Opportunities:

The advanced technologies in solid-state storage increase the SSDs with new edges like NVMe and PCle. Quick data and high-speed access improved features are inspiring the acceptance of PCle SSDs for cloud computing which is projected to drive the global market during the assessment period.


Challenges:


Design complexity and limited storage space are the challenging factors of the SSD controllers market.
