Western Digital Retakes Lead In Hard Drive Market From Seagate

Summary: Analysts assert that Western Digital "now has fully recovered" after the flooding disaster in Thailand last year.
European Electronic looks to be on the path to restoration following the flooding in Thailand last year, which used the hard drive generate industry for a cycle that hasn't been entirely controled yet.

Market intellect firm IHS iSuppli reviews that European Electronic retook the cause from Seagate in the global hard drive generate industry during the second one fourth of 2012 with approximately 71 thousand HDD models produced.

That's on top of $4.8 billion dollars in income for the one fourth -- a company record, IHS points out.

Fang Zhang, an specialist for storage space systems at IHS, described in the report that European Electronic lost the top spot during the fourth one fourth of 2011 following the surging. It's worth directing out that Seagate worked out better and saw a quicker restoration because its manufacturer is on higher ground than European Digital's location.

Zhang stated that European Electronic "now has fully retrieved from the catastrophe, allowing it to considerably improve deliveries of HDDs for laptop computer PCs, up 28 % from the first one fourth."

Furthermore, IHS forecasts that European Electronic will continue its cause over the hard drive generate industry in both deliveries and income through at least the third one fourth.

But the hard drive generate industry overall is truly improving -- not just European Electronic. Approximately 157 thousand hard drive generate models were delivered in Q2 -- up 8 % from 145.1 thousand during Q1 2012. European Electronic taken into account 45 % of those deliveries, while Seagate trailed a little bit at 42 %. New laptop came in a far away third with 13 %.

Overall, total income throughout the industry during Q2 was $10.3 billion dollars -- up from $9.6 billion dollars in the first one fourth.

To Seagate's credit, the Cupertino, Calif.-based storage space provider did see in a rise in deliveries as well from 60.7 thousand models in Q1 to 65.9 thousand in Q2. IHS added that Seagate also continues to cause in the pc, enterprise and non-PC sections.
