#HDD #Shipments #Plummet #YoY #Weakening #Demand

Following a historic 33% decline in shipments year over year (YoY), the HDD market in 2Q 2022 seems to be on the verge of an apocalypse – or at least standing at the doors to purgatory. As reported by Storage Newsletter, weakening demand on the client side prompted this faltering shipment situation for one of the longest-lived storage mediums. Density increase achievements aren’t enough to buoy this particular market.

HDD shipments across the various market segments (client and enterprise) only totaled 45 million units – a far cry from the 2010 peak of 651 million units (an average of 162 million units per quarter).
