The Asia-Pacific tape storage market size was valued at USD 1,461 million in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 3,567 million by 2031, registering a CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period (2023-2031).
"Tape storage" refers to magnetic tape data storage, a technique for digitally capturing and storing huge volumes of data on magnetic tape. It is used to archive data for long-term storage and backup in case of a system breakdown.
Growth in Industrialization
As many industrial sectors generate large amounts of data. Asia-Pacific manufacturing is growing due to consumer goods and infrastructural needs. These companies generate massive amounts of data that require long-term storage and backup. The Asia-Pacific automobile sector is growing rapidly in China and India. These organizations need secure storage for massive sensor and production line data volumes. Tape storage is scalable, secure, and cost-effective for these enterprises.
As is the automobile industry, oil and gas, mining, and construction are also growing throughout Asia-Pacific. Tape storage may become more popular as these areas grow.
High Initial Investment
Hardware, software, installation, and maintenance are included. Tape storage may be too expensive for some firms, especially SMEs. For data backup and long-term archives, prominent Chinese banks and financial organizations use tape storage. One of the world's largest institutions, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), employs tape storage for data backup and archiving. Its tape library holds over 300 petabytes. Many smaller financial organizations cannot afford tape storage options.
The Emergence of Higher Storage Capacity in Tape Storage
Reliable, high-capacity storage is needed as data quantities grow exponentially. Due to its affordability, longevity, and scalability, many Asia-Pacific organizations prefer tape storage. Fujifilm in Japan has invented the world's highest-capacity magnetic tape, which stores 317 gigabytes per square inch. This groundbreaking technology can store up to 400 terabytes of data on a tape cartridge, making long-term data archiving cost-effective and energy-efficient.
