Next-generation non volatile memory market, by region, 2014 - 2024, (USD Million)

Next generation non volatile memory market

Industry players are aiming to provide power conservation technologies along with improved efficiency in the industry. Decreasing profit margins for traditional memory technologies are expected to be the key factor for the development of new technologies, which are expected to provide faster and more efficient storage methods.

The growing demand for mass storage and universal storage devices is expected to favor market growth over the forecast period. High designing cost and stability in extreme environmental conditions is expected to hinder the growth over the next six years.

Increasing demand in various applications such as industrial and replacement of flash memory may provide new opportunities for market growth over the forecast period. Increasing demand for flexible and wearable electronics may also provide new avenues for industry growth.

Product Insights

Non-volatile memory (NVM) is highly reliable and can be programmed using a simple microcomputer and in most modern electronic equipment; the segment accounted for the majority of the next-generation non-volatile memory market in 2015. Few non-volatile memories include Phase-Change memory (PCM), Ferroelectric RAM (FeRAM), Magneto-resistive RAM (MRAM), Resistive RAM (RRAM), flash, and spin-transfer torque RAM (STT-RAM).

The MRAM product segment dominated the overall industry in 2015 with a market size valued at USD 240.2 million. The ReRAM segment is anticipated to emerge as the fastest-growing product segment over the forecast period. The memory types are generally classified based on their functional properties with respect to the programming and erasing operations.

Application Insights

The industry products address the urgent need for some specific and small-form devices. Enterprise storage is expected to be the key application segment over the forecast period owing to the increasing adaptation of STT-MRAM and PCM memory. The Embedded MCU & Smart Card application segment is presumed to gain traction over the forecast period.

Non-volatile memory is expected to improve the input and output performance of enterprise storage systems as their requirements are estimated to increase with the growing demand for web-based data. The adoption of PCM over NOR or flash memory in mobile phones is expected to increase. Microcontrollers and smart cards are likely to adopt PCM, MRAM, or STT-MRAM as a substitute to embed flash higher-density chips.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific is expected to be the key regional market over the forecast period owing to the presence of key industry participants in countries such as China, South Korea, Japan, and India. Additionally, the growing computer and mobile phone industry are also expected to favor regional growth over the next six years.

Different interface technologies include DDR, SATA, SAS, PCIe, and I2C. DDR interface is majorly used high speed and memory demanding applications such as industrial, networking, and telecommunication equipment. They are also used in servers, workstations, and graphic cards.

DDR has the ability to fetch data on both the rising and falling edge of a clock cycle which doubles the data rate for a given clock frequency. SATA interface is primarily used in computer systems and laptops. PCIe interface is suitable for all computer applications including enterprise servers, consumer personal computers (PC), communication systems, and industrial applications for caching and buffering applications.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Key vendors in the industry are IBM Corp, Adesto Technologies, Everspin Technologies, Crossbar Inc, Fujitsu Ltd, Intel Corporation, Micron Technology, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., and Toshiba Corporation. Toshiba and South Korea-based SK Hynix are working on MRAM that offers high storage capacity and consumes two-thirds the power of DRAM, which is widely used in personal computers, smartphones, and other equipment.

Recent Developments

  • In October 2022, Everspin  Technologies signed a contract with QuickLogic Corporation. This partnership was aimed at integrating the spin-transfer Torque MRAM into FGPA products, offering radiation resistance and persistence.

  • In June 2022, Everspin Technologies launched New STT-MRAM products at Embedded World 2022. The EMxxLX STT-MRAM supports the Expanded SPI (xSPI) interface and has an exceptional read and write bandwidth of 400 megabytes per second.

  • In April 2022, Crossbar announced the launch of new applications for its Resistive RAM (ReRAM) technology. This technology uses secure storage and processing, wherein resistance to reverse engineering and physical attacks are vital requirements of this system. 

  • In October 2021, Crossbar announced the introduction of new applications for its Resistive RAM (ReRAM) technology. This non-volatile memory technology is used in few-time programmable (FTP) and one-time programmable (OTP) applications and is mainly utilized for program/boot code or data that is unique to semiconductors including chip IDs or trim bits.
