Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) Device Market Report Scope & Overview:

Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) Device Market Size was valued at USD 39.29 billion in 2022, and expected to reach USD 559.53 billion by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 39.1% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

A Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) device is a magnetic storage method for hard drives that involves heating a portion of the disc where the data is written with a small laser. Heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) is a magnetic storage device that dramatically increases the amount of data that can be stored on a magnetic device such as a hard disc drive by briefly heating the disc material during recording, making it much more responsive to magnetic effects. Customers' purchasing behaviour is primarily influenced by advancements in industrial automation and related technologies, according to HAMR device manufacturers.

  • This will be covered under the final version of the report.


The growing demand for data storage necessitates the development of more affordable and efficient heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) devices. Manufacturers of HAMR devices are already investing in R&D to provide better hard discs to businesses and individuals. High-performance hard disc drives with increased storage capacity are in high demand. The introduction of magnetic and digital technologies has drastically altered the market for heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) devices. As a result of production shutdowns, the increased use of electronic components in modern manufacturing has an impact on the consumer market. Despite the fact that raw materials are plentiful, manufacturers are unable to produce components quickly enough to meet the ever-increasing demand. Increased demand and unpredictability in raw material prices have an impact on supply chains, making it difficult for manufacturers to achieve returns on investment.

Based on Application, the heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) device market is segmented into Servers, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop and Others. HAMR technology increases hard drive storage capacity by packing more data bits (also known as grains) onto each square inch of disc platter surface using media magnetic technology and heat to write and read the data.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
