The North America tape storage market size was valued at USD 1,764 million in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 2,975 million by 2031, registering a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period (2023-2031).
Tape storage uses digital recording to store data on magnetic tape. Tape drives write and read data. It's one of the oldest ways to store digital data, but it's still popular since it's inexpensive, safe, and versatile for long-term data that are rarely used but still significant. Tape storage is cheap, durable, and holds a lot of data.
Growth in the Adoption of Tape Storage by Large Enterprises
Tape storage is dependable and affordable, so large companies have employed it for years. Tape storage is still popular due to its high volume, long lifespan, and low cost per G.B. The growth of large tape storage users in North America has fuelled the industry. LTO is developed and promoted by the LTO Program consortium. The LTO Program reported 114,997 petabytes (P.B.) of LTO tapes supplied worldwide in 2020, with most going to North America. Enterprise Strategy Group research indicated that 60% of North American firms use tape storage for backup and archiving, and 35% aim to utilize it more in the next 12–18 months.
High Initial Investment
The cost of setting up a tape storage system is high at first, which is a big reason why some groups don't use them.
In North America, government agencies must store voluminous amounts of data for extended periods. However, due to limited budgets, some organizations may be unable to promptly pay the high costs of implementing a tape storage system. This can cause individuals to rely on outmoded, less secure storage methods.
The Emergence of Higher Storage Capacity in Tape Storage
As data continues to grow, the need for storage options with more space is growing. Tape storage is a good way to meet this need. The healthcare business makes a lot of data, like patient records, medical images, and research data. With higher-capacity tape storage solutions, healthcare companies can store more data on tape and rely less on expensive cloud storage solutions. This can be especially helpful for smaller healthcare groups with limited funds.
