  • The NVMe market will be more than $57 billion by 2020
  • More than 50 percent of enterprise servers will have NVMe bays by 2020
  • 60 percent of enterprise storage appliances will have NVMe bays by 2020
  • Nearly 40 percent of AFAs will be NVMe-based by 2020
  • Worldwide shipments of NVMe SSDs will grow to more than 25 million units by 2020
  • Worldwide shipments of M.2 NVMe SSDs will grow to more than 5 million units by 2020
  • NVMe-oF adapter shipments will climb to 740,000 units by 2020
  • Ethernet adapters with RDMA capabilities will be more than 75 percent of the NVMe-oF market

Total NVMe Ecosystem $57B by 2020


“We expect the NVMe market to be more than $57 billion by 2020 with a 95 percent compounded annual growth rate,” said Shaun Walsh, president and managing partner, G2M Inc. “The new G2M Research report on the NVMe market will provide IT professionals, vendors and investors with a better understanding of what factors will characterize product segment leaders and how NVMe technology is being deployed today and will be used in next generation IT infrastructure.”

NVMe will be used for more than just accelerating solid state drives, it will become a major component of new models for compute, fabrics, analytics, application acceleration, systems management and more. There are more than 70 companies that have announced products for the NVMe market and G2M Research has grouped these product offerings into nine categories, including servers and storage appliances with NVMe bays, NVMe all-flash arrays, NVMe-oF adapters, three classes of NVMe storage devices, NVMe I/O blocks and NVMe accelerator adapters.


More than 70 companies are mentioned in the G2M NVMe Ecosystem Market Sizing Report, including major players Broadcom, Cavium, Dell, Dell EMC, IBM, Intel , Lenovo, Marvell, Mellanox, Micron, Microsemi, Oracle, Samsung, SK Hynix, and Toshiba; and emerging startups such as Envemio, Kalray, Kazan Networks, Mangstor, NVLX, and Teledyne-LeCroy.

“NVMe and NVMe over fabrics is on the radar of more than half of IT pros surveyed—just one indicator the market will reach its potential of $57 billion in just a few years”, said Frank Berry, founder and CEO, IT Brand Pulse. “The NVMe Alliance has partnered with the authors of the NVMe Market Report to accelerate the awareness in the IT community needed to make strategic decisions about next generation server, networking and storage technologies, and to facilitate development of NVMe solutions.”

To better understand the NVMe market, initial NVMe use cases and industry adoption, G2M Research is conducting a survey of IT professionals and NVMe vendors about their plans for deploying and developing NVMe-related technologies. We invite both to participate in this market survey, the first 500 participants will receive a $10 Amazon gift card as well as a copy of the survey results.
