IHS iSuppli Sees Solid Market for Solid State Drives

Maximum PC: It's going to be several years before solid state drives (SSDs) reach the same or similar market share as mechanical hard disk drives (HDDs), but in the meantime, one of those storage sectors is seeing explosive growth. According to IHS iSuppli, a new generation of lower-cost and more appealing Ultrabooks will help double the number of SSD shipments to 83 million units in 2013, up from 39 million in 2012. By 2016, IHS iSuppli believes SSD shipments will reach 40 percent the size of the HDD market. (IHS iSuppli, PC hardware, Solid State Drive)
