This IDC study (a translation of the Japanese document) looks at the performance of the Japan tape drive and tape automation markets between 2008 and 2010, and provides forecasts for 2012 through 2016. The markets are sized and forecast based on revenue and unit shipments. Tape drive shipments are also analyzed and forecast by capacity. Tape automation shipments are also analyzed and forecast based on the number of cartridges. The tape technologies covered are half-inch cartridge (3480/3490, 3590, 3592, TS1120/1130/1140, 9840/9940/T10000), LTO, DLT/SDLT, AIT/SAIT, DDS/DAT, SLR, Travan, DLT-1, and VXA.

"It is important for suppliers to incorporate tape storage into disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T) solutions in the backup market and uncover new needs for large-capacity archives in diverse industries," says Masaaki Moriyama, group director, IDC Japan.
