Last year’s floods in Thailand were one of the main reason of hard disk drive (HDD) shortage in computer market. That time, the production of HDDs experienced a sudden drop. After a year, the HDD manufacturing industry has fully recovered the volume of shipments. It is expected that the worldwide shipments of HDD will break earlier records this year.

Recently, market research firm IHS iSuppli revealed a report about HDD shipments in 2012. According to the research firm, the hard drive shipments have rebounded. The HDD shipment volume is expected to rise this year due to higher demand in the enterprise market and the arrival of the Windows 8 operating system.

The report says that at least 524.0 million units of HDD will be shipped in 2012 to the computer manufacturers. IHS iSuppli forecast says that HDD shipments will hit 575.1 million units at the end of 2016.

Fang Zhang, analyst for storage systems at IHS said, “HDD shipments for computers will overcome a sluggish third quarter to reach record levels in 2012.” He also added, “The yearly rise in HDD shipments is the result of greater demand from the consumer and enterprise PC segments, both of which continue to clamor for disk space in order to hold storage-intensive media like music, videos and other forms of social media content. As downloadable media content becomes more readily accessible and affordable, so will the quest for storage space continue in order to satisfy unremitting demand. Meanwhile, the HDD industry has completely resolved disruptions to its HDD manufacturing and component supply caused by the Thailand disaster that struck one year ago.”
