Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/79t83x/memory_market_trac) has announced the addition of the "Memory Market Tracker" subscription to their offering.
This tracker provides a complete market analysis on each of the various types of memory on the market including DRAM, Flash, SRAM, PROMs, EPROM, IC Cards, and Other Memory. DRAM, NOR Flash, and NAND Flash still account for the vast majority this market's revenue. After very poor results during 2011, Databeans projects that global sales growth of memory ICs will remain nearly flat in 2012, reaching an estimated $59.9 billion. Despite the falling ASPs and excess supply of memory chips resulting from poor PC demand, the memory market has been at least partially saved by the popularity of tablets and smartphones, both of which use large amounts of mobile memory. This has led to increased demand for NAND Flash, especially in smartphones that run Google's Android OS, as these devices require significantly more Flash memory than the Apple iPhone line. Mobile DRAM is another high growth category, thanks to tablet PCs, such as Apple's highly popular iPad. However, NOR Flash memory continues to decline in usage as it is currently having difficulty meeting the mounting demand for higher density, lower cost embedded memory. Over the past year, traditional suppliers of NOR Flash, including Spansion and Micron, have seen their market shares erode considerably.
