In an interview IBM's HDD division's head Currie Munce told that IBM strongly believes that in future, PVRs are the technology that will create more demand for harddrives.
According to IBM, people simply don't need more HDD space in near future -- 500GB harddrives and bigger than that are most likely going to be used in PVR devices (Personal Video Recorder) like TiVo and in digital TVs. Actually he suggests that only low-end models within 5 years will have 200GB of HDD, most models will ship with 500GB or 1000GB HDDs.
