Platter Substrate Materials Market Outlook - 2021-2030

The global platter substrate materials market was valued at $327.0 thousand in 2020, and is projected to reach $687.3 thousand by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2021 to 2030.

Platter substrate material is used in magnetic platter of the hard disk. The hard disk stores the date in the form of zeros and ones across a thin layer made from magnetic material. This magnetic material is supported by the substrate material. The substrate material should be rigid and lightweight, since the disk rotates at a high speed. The reliability of the hard disk depends on the rigidity of the substrate. The substrate is made up of aluminum and glass. The aluminum disk tends to soften due to extreme heat generated in the hard disk and due to this, the glass disk is preferred over the aluminum disk in the construction of substrate material.

Electronics is projected as the most lucrative segment.

The electronics manufacturing market in Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow rapidly during the upcoming years, due to the increasing presence of large number of OEMs in the region. Low cost and high availability of raw materials coupled with cheap labor, are mainly driving the growth of the sector in the region. The companies in the Asia-Pacific region provide manufacturing and assembling services to companies in Germany, France, and the U.S. Moreover, these companies are rapidly digitizing their businesses, to achieve end-to-end integration of their operations. This is further encouraging OEMs from Europe and North America to outsource their production to Asia-Pacific. Therefore, the growing electronics industry is expected to boost the demand for platter substrate material in coming years and is likely to drive the growth of platter substrate materials market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Analysis:

A hard disk drive is an electromechanical data storage device that uses magnetic storage to store and recover digital data. It is widely used in data centers and personal computers. The increasing need for data storage facilities among enterprises and the introduction of reliable and advanced SSDs is fueling the demand for hard disks. The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly spread across the globe. People are compelled to stay at home to contain the spread of the virus. The rising number of people staying at home has led to increased Internet usage, which is boosting the demand for online video/audio streaming, downloading, as well as video conferencing on apps such as Zoom. The increased Internet usage during the lockdown has resulted in the generation of vast amounts of data, which needs to be managed by data center facilities across the world. Data centers are processing these significant amounts of data, which leads to the adoption of hard disks and thus, drives the demand for platter substrate material from hard disk drives (HDD) manufacturers. However, on the flip side, the halt in construction activities and delays caused in the construction of new data centers due to the COVID-19 pandemic has lowered the adoption of hard disk drives, which is hindering the demand for HDD. Besides, due to the decreasing shipment of personal computers before the pandemic, the hard disk drive manufacturers have witnessed a decline in their revenue. Thus, the demand for platter substrate materials from hard disk drive manufacturers across the globe has declined resulting in decline in growth of the market.

In addition, during the pandemic, the wide adoption of the work from home policy caused a short-term rise in the demand for PCs and other systems for remote work; however, it has also driven the demand for data centers that support cloud-based and remote work, in turn, was driving the demand for nearline HDDs for majority secondary storage throughout 2020.
