Further key findings from the study suggest:
- Non-volatile memory storage is expected to remain the key product segment over the forecast period; it accounted for over 90% of the market in 2013. This technology is used for economical storage and fast processing of data and sustains the stored information even when the power is turned off. Volatile memory storage is estimated to witness considerable growth over the forecast period. In this technology, information fades when the power supply is turned off unless the storage device is periodically refreshed.
- Mobile phones were a major application segment in 2013 and accounted over 55% of the overall market in the same year. All common computing platforms from handheld devices to supercomputers use storage systems to store data permanently or temporarily. Smart cards store a few bytes of data and are expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period.
- North America was estimated to be the key regional market in 2013. The Asia Pacific market is expected to grow at a considerable rate owing to increasing demand for smartphones and tablets. Additionally, presence of key market players in countries such as China, India, Japan and South Korea is also expected to positively impact the regional market over the forecast period.
- Key industry participants include Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., IBM Corp, Adesto Technologies, Crossbar Inc, Fujitsu Ltd, Toshiba Corporation, Intel Corporation etc. Toshiba along with SK Hynix are working on production of next generation memory chips, which is expected to decrease power consumption and increase data transfer speed. Economical and efficient solution development is expected to be a critical success factor for market players.
