Storage Area Network (SAN) Market to Expand 1.6X by 2029

Connectivity is undergoing at-scale transformation all over the world, and making genuine leaps in specific areas. Software vendors are rethinking their professional-services capabilities in order to satiate the evolving customer demand and maintain their margin growth. Industrials are facing the implication to incorporate high-performance backup and recovery capabilities with data availability and device sharing to accelerate progress and foster innovation. Storage area networks (SAN) improve overall server performance with server-less backup. As per a new FMI study, the global deployment of storage area networks will surpass US$ 20 Bn by 2022.

Frequently Asked Questions about Storage Area Network (SAN) Market

How is the storage area network (SAN) market expected to shape up in the next decade?

With the combination of high performance backup and recovery capabilities with data availability and device sharing, various performance issues such as shrinking backup windows, performance degradation, and continuous downtime periods can be solved. Moreover, increase in overall server performance with server-less backup grant by SAN architecture potentially makes an incredible opportunity for the growth of the SAN market.

What are the major challenges for players in the storage area network market?

Several standards have been developed for fibre channel technology. Different interpretations of these standards by vendors have resulted into the development of products that sometimes cannot work together on the same network. Such issues related to interoperability would be a huge challenge for companies in the storage area network market.

Which end user will account for the highest sales in the next five years?

The BFSI industry is expected to account for a majority of share in the storage area network market. With SAN, the clusters are active, and master application works concurrently on them with workload balancing. This configuration is typically employed for business-critical applications such as banking systems, which is creating profitable opportunities for existing players in the storage area network market.

Which region is expected to lead the global storage area network market?

Asia Pacific excluding Japan is anticipated to remain at the forefront of the SAN market, offering high growth opportunities for market players. Players in the region are focusing on providing real-time access to data storage shared by a cluster of nodes, high speed channel, with multiple hosts, and an intelligent storage controller via a SAN. 

Which technology will offer the most lucrative growth opportunities for SAN market players?

Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCOE) is expected to account for a majority of share in the SAN market. Fiber channels also maintain security, latency, and traffic management, which creates profitable opportunities for storage area network market players.

FCoE to Outrun Existing SANs

Players in the storage area network market, at present, prefer fibre channel (FC) and Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) protocol for connecting data storage facilities, with the former capturing greater attention. However, while FC is cost-prohibitive, iSCSI lags behind in terms of reliability and performance, and thus, both these storage networking protocols will see steep decline in their adoption in the coming years. Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) technology eliminates the need to establish parallel networks for networking and storage, thereby reducing cost and complexity. Although FCoE is yet to become mainstay, its ability to connect seamlessly with existing FC storage area networks will broaden its application aperture in the near term.

APEJ to Strengthen Grip in SAN Market Landscape

North America and Europe have been at the driver’s seat in the technology and innovation sphere. Grabbing a higher share in market value, collectively, service providers in the storage area network market continue to generate maximum revenue in these developed regions. However, the SAN market is likely to witness substantial portfolio shift towards Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ). SAN market players are focusing on providing real-time access to data storage shared by a cluster of nodes with high-speed channels, multiple hosts, and advanced storage controllers via storage area networks.

e-Commerce Websites to Offer New Horizons of Growth

Increasing prevalence of digital-enabled services among consumers, owing to their convenience, is boosting the digital commerce ecosystem. e-Commerce websites are significantly resource-intensive, considering the number and kind of queries that are processed simultaneously per second. Loads of customers browse and make purchases in sync, and this voluminous data chunk is needed to be stored in a database for further retrieval. In an effort to store information of such high-traffic databases, storage area networks are essential, given their high performance and fast I/O attributes.

Hardware components to shape market revenue pool

Software components to witness greater usage

Enterprise server SAN accounts for higher adoption

Hyperscale server SAN to see accelerated growth

Fibre channel (FC) stays in-demand

Fibre channel over Ethernet (FCOE) to gain wide acceptance

BFSI sector remains immediate customer

Application in IT & telecom sector to surge

How Growth will Unfold

The banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) and IT & telecom sectors would remain key revenue propellers of the storage area network market. SANs enable working of clusters and master application concurrently in tandem with load balancing. This configuration is typically employed for business-critical applications such as banking systems. The deployment of storage area networks in BFSI security and IT & telecom services will collectively cross US$ 10 Bn by 2022. Further, SAN market players are placing their bets on the government sector for relevant value creation.
