Worldwide External Disk Storage Systems Factory Revenue Declines for the Second Consecutive Quarter, According to IDC

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 5, 2013 — Worldwide external disk storage systems factory revenues posted a year-over-year decline of -0.8%, totaling just over $5.9 billion, in the second quarter of 2013 (2Q13), according to the International Data Corporation ( IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Disk Storage Systems Tracker. For the quarter, the total (internal plus external) disk storage systems market generated $7.7 billion in revenue, representing a -5.0% decline from the prior year's second quarter and a slight sequential decline compared to the first quarter of 2013. Total disk storage systems capacity shipped reached 8.2 exabytes, growing 21.5% year over year.

"Once again, spending on disk systems varied considerably by region," said Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage. "Emerging markets experienced increases in demand while spending within mature markets, including the United States, Western Europe, Canada, and Japan, fell when compared to the same quarter a year ago. This reduced demand is creating a very competitive environment and a general deterioration in pricing, which seems to worsen market conditions."
