Consumer demand for new networked applications will feed through to soaring sales for storage systems, according to IDC.

The US market research firm reckons the worldwide market for storage systems - RAID, network attached storage, disk arrays, storage area networks and the like - will be worth $53 billion. This is a compound annual growth rate of 12 per cent.

IDC pinpoints a number of factors responsible for the growth: the introduction of broadband infrastructure will fuel consumer demand for graphic intensive imaging; corporates will migrate to networked storage
Installation of capacity by storage service providers; storage service providers will install storage capacity; and so on.

You can find out more from IDC here. But for the real lowdown on market share, sales by technology segment etc, you'll have to buy the IDC report: "2000 Disk Storage Systems Forecast and Analysis, 1999-2004." ®
