SANS - Survey on application security programs

The worldwide market in PC cards will be worth $1.30 billion by the year 2004, according to a survey by Forrester Research. The market was worth $653.3 million in 1997, the company said. The growth will be fuelled not only by existing applications but new markets including digital cameras, handheld PCs and smartphones will emerge, the report said. According to Jan ten Sythoff, IT analyst at Forrester, multifunction cards and small form factor cards are becoming more popular, while sales of modem and Lan cards will slow. Memory storage PC cards have very few active players, said ten Sythoff. "Calluna is today the only hard disk PC card manufacturer. Manufacturers with strong flash chip technology lead the memory PC card market, with SanDisk and Hitachi spearheading," he said. The survey shows that 3Com now is the market leader in the total PC card market, while Xircom is market leader in multifunction PC cards. ®
