Every time I hear the demise of optical discs or someone lament that they can’t remember the last time they played a CD or DVD, I am reminded that there is a much bigger market for optical discs and related devices than just everyday consumers. In fact, an article was published recently, indicating that the market for all optical storage products will reach a staggering $33.07 billion USD in the next 10 years. That’s a strong showing for what some like to call a dead technology.
If you think about it, optical discs decline as a storage medium for some consumers due to the cloud and streaming, simply increased the need for digital storage on the business side of cloud storage. Optical discs have proven to be the most cost effective and secure manner to store digital content, and much of cloud storage is offloaded from hard drives in servers to intricate optical disc archiving equipment. Since optical discs do not require electricity or cold temperatures to maintain content, nor can that content be altered or deleted, server farms are electing to offload much of their cold data onto easy to recall optical discs systems.
These and many other factors prove that there is still a lucrative business in the optical storage market and those that understand the market can make a nice profit long into the future!
