“Increasing incidences of cybercrimes have prompted business organizations to adopt hardware-based data collection systems, providing much needed impetus to zoned flash manufacturers,” infers the FMI analyst.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

As the world heads towards a recessionary downturn, there are certain industries which are anticipated to stay afloat, including the zoned flash market.

While significant growth restrictions are expected in budgets and infrastructure, an infinitesimal possibility exists with regard to a constrained supply of storage to meet the requirements of the digital universe. As companies increasingly facilitate remote working arrangements, demand for digital data storage facilities is surging multifold.

As the pandemic unfurled in the past few months, incidences of cyberattacks registered a massive surge, with many organizations reporting several incidences of data theft and compromise across online platforms. Thus, companies have accelerated their spending on hardware-based storage devices, providing green spaces for the zoned flash market.

Therefore, a positively sloping curve is anticipated for the zoned flash market in the short-term forecast.
