Network Attached Storage Market Outlook 2031

The global network attached storage market size was valued at USD 25.70 Billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 71.84 Billion by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 12.1% during the forecast period 2023 - 2031. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing awareness about product features, such as flexibility & scale-out, and economical installation & maintenance costs.

Demand to access data within the corporate network at any time and from any location is driving the network attached storage market. Growing adoption of small and virtual office environments has created the need for remote access to data. This factor is expected to drive the market.

Network Attached Storage Market Outlook

Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a device that is used to store and retrieve data from a central disk volume. These devices are connected to a Local Area Network (LAN) and are utilized by multiple authorized users at the same time to store and access their data reliably and securely. NAS devices are flexible and are used to meet the needs of additional storage.

Business operation is a prerequisite to maintain the backup of confidential data of NAS devices. They are a suitable storage solution. These devices backup targets and files to store copies of data, thus increasing their adoption by business enterprises. Moreover, NAS devices have data compression ability, which aids in storing a duplicate copy of data. The efficiency of the searching capability is improved by reducing the number of duplicate entries. Data deduplication helps to replace duplicate files on the NAS network by tagging files referring to the original file.

The research report finds that the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the network attached storage (NAS) market. The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of remote work, leading to a surge in the demand for NAS solutions. Businesses shifted to remote work setups, which increased the need for secure and efficient data access and storage solutions, thereby driving the demand for NAS. Increased reliance on digital platforms and online services during the pandemic boosted data generation. This created the need for scalable and reliable storage solutions such as NAS to accommodate the growing data storage requirements.

Artificial Intelligence Impact on Network Attached Storage Market

Artificial intelligence (AI) has a significant impact on the network attached storage (NAS) market. Businesses leverage AI algorithms to gain actionable intelligence, identify patterns, and make data-driven decisions. AI-powered analytics is integrated with NAS solutions to extract valuable insights from stored data. This enhances the value proposition of NAS solutions and drives their adoption. AI automates various aspects of data management within NAS systems. This includes tasks such as data classification, deduplication, indexing, and metadata management. The automation provided by AI simplifies data management processes, improves efficiency, and reduces manual effort. For instance,

  • In October 2021, Dell Technologies, a US-based company, introduced a NAS solution, namely, Dell EMC Power Scale Solution. This advanced solution combines AI and machine learning capabilities to support various workloads, including modern AI, ML-based tasks, consolidation, and traditional file archives.

Network Attached Storage Market Dynamics

Major Drivers

Increasing usage of NAS for big data analytics and data mining applications is driving the network attached storage market. Companies in industries, such as healthcare, finance, and e-commerce, use NAS to store and analyze large volumes of data for insights and decision-making. NAS solutions provide a centralized storage platform that enables seamless remote access and collaboration, presenting an opportunity for NAS vendors to cater to this growing demand. For instance,

  • In September 2021, Amazon.com Inc., through its AWS business subsidiary, introduced the Amazon MSK Connect zone redundancy storage system. This new system boasts extended compatibility that enhances Kafka Connect efficiency. It features multiple backup zones that span container applications on the Azure Kubernetes Services, which adds an extra layer of redundancy and ensures data safety.

Growing adoption of 4G and 5G technologies, along with the rising consumer inclination towards smartphones, tablets, and laptops, has led to the generation of a large volume of data. This is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the network attached storage market.

Existing Restraints

Rising security concerns are expected to hamper the market growth. Increasing volume of data stored on NAS solutions has led to concerns about data security and privacy. Businesses are hesitant to adopt NAS solutions, due to the risk of data breaches and cyberattacks, which has a negative impact on the growth of the market.

Complexity of implementation and management of network attached storage is expected to restrain the market growth. NAS solutions are complex to implement and manage, requiring specialized IT skills and resources. This complexity makes it difficult for businesses to adopt NAS solutions, especially for small and medium-sized businesses with limited IT resources.

Emerging Opportunities

Growing adoption of cloud-based NAS solutions is expected to create lucrative opportunities in the market. Adoption of cloud-based NAS solutions is rising, due to their scalability, cost-effectiveness, and ease of management. This presents an opportunity for NAS providers to offer cloud-based storage solutions and capitalize on the increasing demand for cloud storage. Moreover, the rising adoption of cloud NAS file storage as a service is driving the NAS market. Companies such as Dropbox and Google Drive offer cloud-based NAS solutions, allowing users to store and access their data from anywhere with an internet connection.
