Market Overview A storage area network refers to
a high-speed network, which interconnects and
presents a shared band of storage devices to
various servers. SANs are typically helpful in
backup and disaster recovery settings. SANs are
used to enhance the capacity of mass storage
devices such as optical jukeboxes, tape
libraries, and disk arrays that have access to
servers. Increasing volumes of critical data
being accumulated in the global business
environment have led to an increased need for
better performances, manageability, availability,
and security of data storage assets among
enterprises. Furthermore, many enterprises are
focused on implementing specialized storage
networks that can aid businesses in attaining
operational efficiencies. The global Storage
Area Network (SAN) Market was accounted for US
17,823.4 Mn in terms of value in 2019 and is
expected to grow at CAGR of 3.5 for the period
  • Market Dynamics- Drivers
  • Rising demand for efficient backup operations is
    expected to drive growth of the global storage
    area network (SAN) market during the forecast
  • Previously, in a conventional approach, LAN was
    used for data back-up and restore functions that
    are particularly slow and majorly impact
    efficiency of the whole operation. On the
    contrary, in SAN approach, data moves smoothly
    across the SAN to tape devices as it does not
    utilize critical server I/O or CPU resources.
    Several issues can be improved with the
    integration of high-performance backup and
    restore capabilities with data availability and
    device sharing. This includes performance
    degradation, extended downtime periods, and
    shrinking backup windows. However, increase in
    the overall server efficiency with server-less
    backup offered by SAN architecture is fueling
    adoption of SAN across various verticals. Thus,
    these factors are expected to drive growth of the
    market in the near future.

  • Growing adoption of SANs among SMEs is expected
    to propel the global storage area network (SAN)
    market growth over the forecast period
  • Increasing usage of SANs among small and
    medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is expected to
    boost the market growth, especially in emerging
    economies. This adoption of SANs among smaller
    organizations is mainly driven by the benefits
    offered by SANs such as flexibility, shared
    storage, and centralized control, in order to
    share capacity between multiple hosts. As a
    result of this, major SAN solution providers are
    constantly focused on products that are easy to
    use and are cost-effective for smaller
    enterprises, which in turn, is expected to boost
    the global storage area network (SAN) market
    growth over the forecast period.
  • Statistics
  • North America held dominant position in the
    global Storage Area Network (SAN) market in 2019,
    accounting for 36.8 share in terms of value,
    followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively

Market Share (), in terms of Value, By Region,
  • Market Dynamics- Restraints
  • Major challenges associated with interoperability
    are expected to hamper the global storage area
    network (SAN) market growth over the forecast
  • Several standards have been developed for
    FibreChannel technology. Different
    interpretations of these standards by vendors
    have resulted in development of products that
    sometimes cannot work together on the same
    network. Such issues related to interoperability
    are impacting growth of the SAN market globally.
    Hence, these factors are expected to hamper the
    global storage area network (SAN) market growth
    over the forecast period.
  • Increasing adoption of cloud-based storage
    services in emerging economies is expected to
    restrain growth of the global storage area (SAN)
    market during the forecast period
  • Previously, storage and servers were purchased as
    separate IT infrastructure components by various
    groups within the IT department and under
    different parts of the IT budget. However,
    increasing adoption of cloud-based platforms has
    altered the approach. Furthermore, rising
    adoption of virtualization techniques in server
    and storage has provided a massive shift in
    procurement and deployment of data center
    infrastructure. Many enterprises are moving
    towards purchasing individual physical servers
    connected to SANs to modular reference
    architectures, which include every component
    needed to operate various applications. Thus
    these factors are expected to restrain growth of
    the global storage area (SAN) market in the near

  • Market Opportunities
  • Rising penetration of e-commerce websites can
    provide significant growth opportunities
  • Growing proliferation of e-commerce websites has
    increased adoption of online channels among
    consumers. These e-Commerce applications are
    highly resource-intensive, owing to the kind of
    requests that are processed simultaneously per
    second. Thousands of customers visit, make orders
    and pay, per second, and all this information is
    needed to be stored in the database for later
    retrieval. SANs are being used to store
    information about high traffic databases, owing
    to high performance and rapid I/O
  • Growing demand for extending remote data
    application capabilities of SANs can offer major
    business opportunities
  • Currently, the demand for SANs from enterprises
    with remote data replication capabilities
    extended beyond campus environments and the
    limited distance ranges of SCSI has been
    witnessing a significant increase. This trend is
    supported by development of advanced technologies
    such as SONET (Synchronous Optical Networking)
    and ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode). For
    instance, SONET offers a 50- millisecond recovery
    time, along with extremely high resiliency,
    making it a preferred choice over other transport
    technologies including FibreChannel.

Market Value (US Mn), 2017 - 2027
The global Storage Area Network (SAN) market was
valued at US 17,823.4 Mn in 2019 and is forecast
to reach a value of US 23,471.8 Mn by 2027 at
a CAGR of 3.5 between 2020 and 2027.
  • Market Trends
  • North America Trend
  • After several years of fiscal gloom, optimism is
    returning to the IT sector in North America. IT
    enterprises are intensifying spending on services
    along with hiring new workforce. IT enterprises
    are preparing to speed ahead rapidly with
    projects in potential areas of big data, mobile,
    and the cloud. In March 2015, the U.S. government
    offered to augment its IT investment for the
    third year in a row. Moreover, the U.S.
    Government is investing significantly in shared
    services and cloud services for IT requirements,
    hence total expenditure on in-house IT solutions
    to result in comparatively lower growth.
  • Latin America Trends
  • A number of companies in Latin America are
    focused on cost reduction and converting capital
    expenditure into operational expenditure. Growing
    adoption of outsourcing concepts is expected to
    offer major growth opportunities for IT
    infrastructure outsourcing services in the
    region. Frequent introduction of new concepts in
    the IT sector such as big data, cloud computing,
    and bring your own device (BYOD) has made it
    challenging and complex for companies to manage
    their own data.  Hence, these companies are
    dependent upon IT infrastructure outsourcing
    service providers to streamline tasks related to
    data storage and management.
