Factors such as reduced storage costs for the enterprise information archiving and government mandates to store enterprise information for audit and investigation purposes are further driving the market growth.
  • Estimations put that the data generated by enterprises, mainly include unstructured data, approximated in the range of 70% to 80%, and only 30% to 20% of the data is structured. Data comes in various formats, from structured, numeric data in traditional databases to unstructured text documents, videos, audio, emails, stock ticker data, and financial transactions. Enterprise information archive stores all kind of data in archive storage and make it accessible when required. Organizations are also positioning themselves to extract more value, intelligence, and utility from the data within their archive.
  • Also, according to Cisco, the volume of Big Data in data center storage is anticipated to increase to 403 exabytes by 2021 from 179 exabytes in 2019. Moreover, the increasing usage of the cloud has further supported data generation across end-user verticals. Information archiving solutions leverage public and private cloud platforms in order to offer organizations the much-needed agility and scalability, with lower costs. Therefore, the players in the market are increasingly offering cloud-based solutions to manage data. For instance, the Barracuda Essentials cloud-based service makes e-mail safe for businesses, with advanced threat protection, tamper-proof archiving, and data protection.
  • Furthermore, several regulatory standards have been designed and developed by governments for company compliance. Regulations often mandate that electronic data such as email and social media needs to be stored in a secure, tamper-proof format. High-quality archiving solutions have advanced search and legal hold features that allow secure eDiscovery and compliance with various laws and regulations in regulated industries and beyond. They ensure easy policy management and allow storage in mandated WORM formats.
  • With the outbreak of COVID-19, the market is likely to grow as the total volume of data in the world is growing at a fast pace. According to Seagate Technology PLC, the volume of data is expected to reach 149 zettabytes by 2024 from 26 zettabytes in 2017.
