Market Report Description

The Global Storage Accelerator Market size is expected to reach $64.2 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 29.4% CAGR during the forecast period.

A storage accelerator is known as a high-performance PCIe (peripheral component interconnect express) card-based solid-state storage solution. Generally, a quick solid-state memory is utilized as the storage medium in storage accelerators, eliminating the mechanical latency and sluggish read/write performance of conventional mechanical storage devices.

Compared to parallel buses like PCI and PCI-X, storage accelerator type of PCIe offers lower latency and faster data transfer speeds. Each piece of hardware that is linked to a motherboard through a PCIe link has a unique point-to-point connection. As a result of not utilizing the same bus, devices are not contending for bandwidth.

Storage accelerators, graphics adapter cards, NICs, and other high-performance peripherals are examples of peripherals that use PCIe for data transport. Data is transmitted through two signal pairs, two wires for sending and the other two for receiving when using PCIe. A lane is a collection of signal pairs that may send and receive eight-bit data packets back and forth between two places.

The storage accelerator offloads transmission control protocol (TCP)/internet protocol (IP) computation from a processor. Applications run more quickly owing to storage accelerators since the microprocessor is hardly weighed down by TCP/IP processing. Additionally, it offers significantly better network performance at a reduced cost. In a storage area network (SAN), these storage accelerators can improve throughput, decrease lag, and lower overhead expenses.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The semiconductor and electronics industries have suffered severely as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. Due to an increase in COVID-19 occurrences, businesses and manufacturing facilities worldwide were closed. The supply chain was disrupted by partial or total lockdown, making it difficult for producers to access their customers. The COVID-19 outbreak also affected society and the global economy. The crisis led to decreased corporate confidence, a significant slowdown in the supply chain, and growing panic among some client segments. It also caused uncertainty in the share market. However, the recent growth in the fast implementation of HPC systems would positively affect the storage accelerators market.

Market Growth Factors

Increasing demand for energy efficient storage accelerators

Every year, the size of applications and problems grows substantially, producing a massive volume of data that needs to be handled. This results in significant energy and power usage. Therefore, one of the main issues being handled in industry and research is the capacity to combine the programs in an energy-efficient manner. As a result, in recent years, energy efficiency has grown in significance as a performance indicator. The essential characteristics of storage accelerators that encourage big data analytics are efficient energy consumption and parallelism.

Driven by the expansion of cloud-based services

Cloud-based deep learning services are lowering the up-front costs of conducting commercial operations and decreasing the need for server maintenance work. The rising requirement for AI-based processing has led an increasing number of tech and startups companies to start providing ML as a cloud service. In order to adapt deep learning within their own business demands, the majority of businesses and entrepreneurs do not create their own specialized hardware or software. Small and midsized organizations that consider on-premises alternatives to be more expensive may consider cloud-based solutions.

Market Restraining Factors

Decreasing storage accelerator demand because of lack of hardware experts in AI

As artificial intelligence (AI) is a complicated system, businesses need employees with specific skill sets to design, manage, and implement AI systems. People working with AI systems, for instance, should be knowledgeable about technologies like deep learning, image recognition, ML and equipment intelligence, and cognitive computing. Additionally, it is a challenging undertaking that demands for well-funded internal R&D and patent filing to successfully integrate AI technologies with current systems.

Technology Outlook

On the basis of technology, the storage accelerator market is divided into NAND flash memory, Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EPROM), and others. The EPROM segment recorded a substantial revenue share in the storage accelerator market in 2021. A form of programmable read-only memory (PROM) chip known as an EPROM, or erasable programmable read-only memory, preserves its data even when its power source is turned off. Non-volatile computer memory is capable of retrieving data even after a power source has been switched off and back on.

Processor Type Outlook

Based on processor type, the storage accelerator market is categorized into CPU, GPU, ASIC, and FPGA. The GPU segment garnered the highest revenue share in the storage accelerator market in 2021. Numerous methods (erasure coding, content addressability, online data similarity detection, integrity checks, and digital signatures) that improve the dependability, scalability, and/or efficiency of distributed storage systems produce computational overheads that frequently make them difficult to use on today's hardware.

Application Outlook

On the basis of application, the storage accelerator market is segmented into high-performance computing, data center servers, and others. The high-performance computing segment procured a significant revenue share in the storage accelerator market in 2021. Data is the fuel for game-changing inventions, the source of ground-breaking scientific discoveries, and the improvement of billions of people's quality of life worldwide. Advancements in science, industry, and society all rest on HPC.

Enterprise Size Outlook

Based on enterprise size, the storage accelerator market is bifurcated into large enterprises and small & medium enterprises (SMEs). The large enterprise segment acquired the maximum revenue share in the storage accelerator market in 2021. The demand for more dynamic, more adaptable network services is being driven by the expansion of cloud-based computing, storage, and microservices-based applications. This is especially true for big businesses that run dozens or even hundreds of branch locations. The complexity and expense of operating WANs increase along with the expansion of users and locations.
