Based on storage type, the market is categorized into magnetic storage and flash & solid-state storage. The flash & solid-state storage segment covered the largest share of the market in 2019 and is expected to record the highest CAGR within the healthcare data storage market during the forecast period. Compared to magnetic disks and their decreasing costs, the high capabilities of flash & solid-state drives happened to increase the demand for them by end-users.

Based on the deployment model, the market is subdivided into remote, on-premise, and hybrid solutions. The on-premise model is expected to cover the largest share of the market. On-premise solutions are the most-widely accepted storage solutions in the market. The localized storage deployment model can make use of multi-vendor architecture and minimize risks associated with external attacks and data breaches. Moreover, users can have their on-premise storage and can control their deployment, backup, and data recovery systems. These benefits are propelling the growth of the on-premise solutions market.

Based on the end-user, the medical market is subdivided into pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, CROs, and CMOs; research centers, academic & government institutes, and clinical research labs; hospitals, clinics, and ASCs; diagnostic & clinical laboratories; and other end users. The segment comprising pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, CROs, and CMOs, earned the largest share of the market in 2018. This high revenue share can be attributed to the fact that extensive research on drug discovery is done in pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, which creates a massive amount of data.

Based on the architect, the medical market is segmented into Object Storage, File Storage, and Block Storage. Object storage obtained the largest share. Object storage can serve as unstructured data with relative ease. Therefore, it is aptly suitable for the big data needs of organizations in finance, healthcare, and beyond. File Storage is an old method to store data using a simple approach. Many companies demand centralized, easy to use, and accessible ways to store files. It is commonly demanded by small businesses as it is low-cost contrast to other data storage approaches. Block Storage or block-level storage is a facility that stores data in singular blocks. Block storage is largely favored where efficient and fast transportation of information is needed.

Based on the storage system, there are three types; the Direct-attached Storage, Network-attached Storage, and Storage Area Network. Storage Area Network is the largest segment. As the name implies, a storage area network is a network of disks that are connected to a number of servers through fiber optics, whereas network-attached storage is a single server that shares its storage over the network.

In 2019, North America covered the largest share of the market. Rapid technological advancements, coupled with an unsynchronized approach, led to an increasing volume of unstructured healthcare data. This disarray of information in the wake of consumer awareness and growing cyber threats increased demand for secure, reliable, and cost-efficient storage infrastructure in North America. The RoW is growing fast with increasing IT penetration and is estimated to rise at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
