The total EMEA external storage systems value increased almost by 24% in dollars in the first quarter of 2018 (+7.4% in euros), according to IDC.

The all-flash-array (AFA) market value recorded high double-digit growth in dollars (58.7%), accounting for 32.7% of overall external storage sales in the region, with most gains recorded in the CEMA subregion. Hybrid arrays, in turn, came close to representing half of total external storage shipments (49.1%). The growth in flash-powered arrays came at the expense of HDD-only systems, which recorded yet another double-digit decline (-24.9%).

The Western European market grew 23.9% in U.S. dollar terms, and by 7.4% in euro terms. All flash arrays remained stable at a third of total shipments, with a year-on-year increase well exceeding 50%. Alongside Western Europe, the external storage market in Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEMA) reached 24.1% YoY growth ($423.2 million) triggered by a solid double-digit value boost in both subregions, CEE and MEA.
