This has been indicated by the market intelligence analyst TRENDFOCUS, which revealed that from the current quarter to the fourth quarter of the year, SSD prices will continue to grow by up to 36 percent. These price hikes are like here to stay until 2017 has run its course, with projections of price reductions only materializing in early 2018.
