Q4 HDD Shipments to Flatten or Decline, Says iSuppli

 

With global demand for PCs and other electronic products weakening, iSuppli Corp now is predicting that global shipments of hard disk drives (HDD) used in these systems will be flat or even decline in the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to the third. Due to rapidly changing circumstances, iSuppli has issued optimistic and pessimistic scenario forecasts for global HDD shipments in 2008 and 2009.

So, does that mean there may be less demand for HD's for systems, leading to a potential oversupply, meaning potentially lower prices? Is that the implication?

As the "Flash" drives market increases and they get bigger, that I think will also help to lower the cost of the old IDE and SATA drives. The're mostly used in laptops now but I think they will eventually take over in desktops as well.
