Recently, 115 network disk has also joined the team of blocking illegal links. If you want to save data safely, you can only rely on the local hard disk. However, you will also find that the current HDD Hard disk is expensive, and the price will rise by at least 5% in Q3 quarter.

In the past few years, the HDD Hard disk market has been impacted by SSD hard disk, and the sales volume has been declining. Only 67.6 million pieces were shipped in Q2, compared with 160-180 million pieces before the flood in Thailand in 2011. The quarterly shipment has fallen sharply. The increase of ASP average price is mainly brought by super large capacity hard disk.

However, in Q2, the price of HDD Hard Disk actually rose,3.5-inch hard disk is the wind vane of the market, which is mainly used for desktop computers. The bulk trading price of 1TB hard disk products from July to September is about US $42.5 each, up 5% from April to June.

The key indicator for notebook computers, 2.5-inch 1TB hard disk products, was about $40, also up about 5%.

This price increase is the first time in the HDD industry in two years. It can be said that it has encountered spring.

There are many reasons for the rise in prices. First, the market demand, data center, video surveillance and Chia mining have driven a wave of demand growth, and second, the global shortage of semiconductor chips.

There are few semiconductor chips used on HDD Hard disk, mainly the main control and cache, especially the cache is mainly the DDR3 type of the previous generation. Due to the gradual reduction or even elimination of production capacity, DDR3 memory has increased more than other chips. It has doubled since the beginning of the year, dragging down the cost of HDD Hard disk.
