The global multiprotocol storage market was valued at approximately US$ 35.7 billion in 2022, and it is expected to exceed US$ 56.7 billion by 2032. This growth is anticipated to occur at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.8% from 2022 to 2032.

The global multiprotocol storage market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period, owing to the digital transformation across several services such as Research and Development & Testing, Information Technology (IT), Telecom, and the Internet.

Multiprotocol storage also known as unified or federated storage is a computer storage system that provides block storage and file storage access in a single integrated hardware package, without any requirement of external or third-party gateways, bridges, or routers.

Multiprotocol storage products help in adapting various application requirements by integrating block-based access using serial-attached SCSI (SAS), Fibre Channel, and iSCSI, along with network-attached storage (NAS) or file-based access using NFS and CIFS for file sharing in a solution package.

Multiprotocol storage assists in planning overall storage capacity consumption and provides support for server virtualization initiatives.

It also offers a gateway approach, allowing enterprises to add a specialty file server to a storage system they already own, which results in extending the useful life of the system and balanced usage of assets.

Multiprotocol Storage Market: Drivers and Restraints

Factors such as reduced hardware requirements, lower capital expenditures for the enterprise, simple and centralized management of storage administration tasks compared to separate products, improved data availability and performance, and increased connectivity and utilization resulting in stable operational processes are driving the growth of the multiprotocol storage market.

However, factors such as operational control limitations leading to reduced or variable storage performance, and the requirement of a data backup strategy to avoid performance issues are hindering the growth of the multiprotocol storage market.
