Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVME) Market By Product (Ssds, Servers, All-Flash Arrays, Adapters), Deployment Location (On-Premise, Remote, Hybrid), Communication Standard (Ethernet, Fiber Channel, Infini band), Vertical, And Region - Global Forecast To 2027

Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVME) Market Definition

NVMe (non-volatile memory express) is a set of interface requirements for accessing non-volatile storage media through peripheral component interconnect express (PCIe). This protocol is intended to improve the transfer speed between the enterprise and the customer. This specification contains a large number of elements, all of which are intended to promote the output features and operations.

The global non-volatile memory express (NVMe) demand is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.7% from 2020 to 2027, rising from USD 52.3 billion in 2020 to USD 120.44 billion in 2027.

Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVME) Market Overview

A group of vendors is working on a non-volatile memory networking interface/protocol. NVMe is a modern server storage I/O access system and protocol that allows for quick access to NVM-based storage and memory. Increasing digitalization and the increased need to handle and store data effectively are driving the global non-volatile memory express market. NVMe allows for fast and easy access to SSDs (solid-state drives/storage devices) and has thereby become the storage interface of choice for businesses.

Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVME) Market Segmentation

As they are commonly used as a storage solution in most verticals, NVMe SSDs have the highest market share. The benefits offered by NVMe SSDs are largely responsible for this widespread acceptance. In comparison to HDDs, SSDs were launched to the market as a storage system that allows for quicker read/write operations and lower latency. When compared to HDDs and standard SSDs, NVMe SSDs have improved data storage and retrieval operations with the lowest possible latency (SATA and SAS). SSDs have the highest share of the non-volatile memory express market due to these advantages.

A hybrid system is one that combines on-premise and centralized installations, with active data being processed on-premise and inactive data being moved to remote location-based networks. This is often referred to as emergency recovery planning. The use of a hybrid deployment model is growing as businesses realize the importance of having a backup of critical data in case of an on-premises disaster. Enterprises who wish to take advantage of the advantages of other deployment models while avoiding the high capital costs of on-premise deployment choose hybrid NVMe servers and storage solutions.

On a regular basis, the banking industry produces a massive array of data, ranging from individual transaction records to customer information. Financial organizations can get real-time insights through the advancement of NVMe powered storage technology because data is stored in a standardized manner with fast data processing speed and can be quickly accessed with low latency. NVMe-oF is a network fabric that connects servers and storage systems and extends the high-performance and low-latency advantages of NVMe through network fabrics such as Fiber Channel (FC), Ethernet, and InfiniBand. To connect between the host machine and the target storage unit, NVMe over Fabrics uses a message-based mechanism which results in Fabric channel holding a major share in the NVMe market.

Non Volatile Memory Express Market - By Product Type
