MUMBAI: The recordable optical disc market is expected to demonstrate a CAGR of -5.6 per cent during the forecast period and reach 4,224 Mn units by 2025. Wide-ranging product types such as CD, DVD and Blu-Ray Disc are products that cater to large data storage demands across numerous industries thus generating a desirable market for recordable optical discs.

Globally, demand for recordable optical discs is declining at a rapid rate; however, cutting-edge innovation along with increasing awareness about data security and storage are expected to boost the demand for advanced optical discs in the near future.

According to an FMI analyst, “Global demand for optical storage disc market is declining due to the rapid adoption of new technologies such as cloud storage, Internet of Things (IoT) and Video on Demand (VOD). However, globally, increasing demand for archival solutions and positive outlook for the media and entertainment industry is expected to create significant demand for recordable optical discs in the near future.” The analyst added that major players in the recordable optical disc market are dedicated to invest into research and development (R&D) activities. This investment is majorly focused on product advancement that can be used for storing large amounts of data for longer durations. From a regional perspective, North America was the largest market for recordable optical disc, accounting for 41.4% market share in 2014.

Among countries, Japan and China are projected to play important roles due to the presence of key players. From end-user perspective, the media industry is projected to show a CAGR of -4.3% in terms of volume, during the forecast period. Increasing demand for archival solutions, the media and entertainment industry presents a positive market opportunity for the recordable optical discs.

Factors driving the recordable optical disc market are increasing consumer inclination towards recording HD broadcasts, growing demand for content protection and widening applications of the optical discs. However, stiff competition from other media storage devices and cloud-based storage services and high raw material costs restrain the growth of this market.
