The market is witnessing an increasing demand for storage devices with high capacity within small sizes as the need for data storage is a rising issue for noncommercial consumers and organizations, Technavio reports in their “USB Devices Market – Forecast and Analysis 2022-2026”. USB devices are  reliable as they have a shock absorb rating of 200Gs and can retain data for long periods. They can also be reprogrammed numerous times. USB devices are predominantly used for additional storage in handheld devices such as smartphones, tablets, cameras, and camcorders. These serve the purpose of high storage capacity and compact size.

The emergence of cloud storage services will challenge the growth of the USB devices market during the forecast period. Cloud services allow for the storage of large data sets of any type. They offer more benefits than USB devices, such as the ability to retrieve data from virtually anywhere and disaster recovery and backup strategies. Thus, the emergence of cloud storage services will drive the growth of the market.
