Next Generation Memory Market by Technology (Nonvolatile memory (MRAM, FRAM, PCM, and RRAM), Volatile Memory (DRAM (T-RAM, T-T-RAM, and others) and SRAM (Z-RAM and others)), Application & Geography - Global Forecast to 2013 - 2020

The global next generation memory market is witnessing a very high growth rate as the need for advanced high density memories that can cater to the needs of the ever evolving complex computing systems is increasing. Over the last decade, the need for highly scalable memory solutions with low power dissipation levels has triggered the demand for next generation memory technologies that can sustain very high data rates at relatively lesser power levels. Characteristics such as high write and read latency, high scalability, and high endurance levels, among others, make the emerging next generation memories welcome replacements for traditional non-volatile memories.

Next generation memory technologies covered in this report are the “non-volatile next generation memory technologies” such as Memristor or Resistive Random Access Memory (ReRAM), Phase Change Memory (PCM), Magneto-resistive Random Access Memory (MRAM), and Ferroelectric READ MORE >

The rapidly evolving technology, continuous cutback in process, increasing competition, and a fast move toward nanotechnology characterize the worldwide semiconductor memory market. Chip sizes are shrinking and memory content and applications are increasing. This has resulted in the tremendous growth of the next generation memory market. Next generation memories are the emerging non-volatile memory technologies, which are expected to replace the existing memories; not all the existing memories will be replaced though. High write and read latency, scalability, and high endurance, among others, makes emerging memories the best replacement for traditional non-volatile memories.

Next generation memory technologies covered in this report are Magnetoresistive Random-Access Memory (MRAM), Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM), Phase-change memory (PCM), and Resistive Random-Access Memory (RRAM), among others. Out of these memories, only MRAM and FeRAM account for a reasonable market share and they are quite commercialized in the market. MRAM memory technology is well commercialized and assures a high capacity; it also improves memory solutions for the high end consumer electronics devices.

The major drivers for the next generation memory market are faster switching time, high endurance, and better power efficiency. In addition, the huge application base of traditional memories will also become the driver for this market. Since these memories are not completely established, there are still flaws in the processes, which cause drawbacks such as instability and low write endurance rate in some of the memories. As mentioned, these memories are expected to be the replacement for flash memories in near future. The flash market has already tapped the huge market and, hence, it makes the way for next generation memories.

The major issue for global next generation memory market is the design cost of the memories. Not all the processes are intact yet; hence, it increases the cost of the process and design. However, early adoption of these memories will be the game changing strategy for memory market. Most of the next generation memories are also called as ‘universal memory’, which performs both, the volatile and non-volatile functions. So, the early adoption of such memories will be crucial for the concerned companies.

The companies currently involved in the next generation memory market are Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (South Korea), Toshiba Corporation (Japan), and Micron Technologies Inc. (U.S.), SK Hynix, Inc. (South Korea), Fujitsu ltd. (Japan), Intel Corporation (U.S.), SanDisk Corporation (U.S.), Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (U.S.), IBM Corporation (U.S.), and Adesto Technologies Corporation Inc (U.S.).
