3.5 inch HDD supply shortage

3.5 inch HDD supply shortage

Our industry insiders in Taipei told us last night that the supply of 3.5 inch hard disk drives, commonly used in desktop computer systems and servers have fallen short of consumer and business demand and that the supply will be tight for the rest of the year, possibly taking until March-April of 2010 before it settles.

Many top manufacturers such as Western Digital, Seagate, Samsung Electronics, Hitachi and Toshiba have recently increased their production of 2.5 inch drives used in Notebooks due to huge growth in this sector in 2009, according to sources.

Seagate and Western Digital however are currently the two main suppliers of 3.5 inch drives with a combined global share of over 80 percent.
