The roots of the majority of memory technologies that are used in contemporary computing systems go back to early 1970s when the modern day semiconductor industry was in the nascent stage. These technologies include solid-state memories such as Static RAM (SRAM), Dynamic RAM (DRAM), and EPROM; and mechanical memories such as tape and the Hard Disk Drive (HDD). The scalability of these memory technologies has been a key factor in the emergence of the increasingly complex computing devices so far.

However, these conventional memory technologies are facing many challenges such as difficulties of miniaturization and reliability issues. The exponentially increasing demand for an enriched end-user experience and increased performance in Next Generation Memory Market mainstream computing applications is rendering these memory technologies obsolete. Driven by multi-core computing, virtualization, and processor integration trends, the global electronics and semiconductor industry has increasingly been feeling the need for next-generation main memory solutions that are capable of achieving data rates of up to 6400Mbps, with the same or lower power dissipation levels, as that of current advanced conventional memory solutions.

Many new memory technologies are in various stages of commercial development. Emerging memories are expected to replace most of the conventional memory technologies like flash memory. Next Generation Memory Market covered in this report are 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 Random Access Memory (FeRAM), among other technologies. Emerging volatile next generation memory technologies included in the report are Static Random Access Memory (SRAM) and Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM), which include Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM), mobile DRAM, and other emerging DRAM technologies. Out of these memories, only MRAM and FeRAM account for a reasonable market share and they are quite commercialized in the market.

The semiconductor memory manufacturing industry is expected to face significant challenges over the next six to eight years period as it would witness the evolution of these emerging next generation memory technologies. The divergence of the two requirements of increasing performance while lowering power has posed a huge challenge for the future memory system designers.

The companies that are profiled in the report are SanDisk Corporation (U.S.), Toshiba Corporation (Japan), Intel Corporation (U.S.), Micron Technology, Inc. (U.S.), Adesto Technologies Corporation, Inc. (U.S.), Fujitsu Ltd. (Japan), SK Hynix Semiconducto, Inc. (South Korea), Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (South Korea), Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (U.S.), and IBM (U.S.), the total market for next generation memory is expected to reach up to $3.7 billion by 2020, at an estimated CAGR of 38.25% from 2014 to 2020.

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.
