Next generation memories are the emerging non-volatile memory technologies, which are expected to replace existing memories. Not all existing memories will be replaced though. Next generation memories majorly targets the non-volatile memories such as NAND and NOR. High write and read latency, scalability, high endurance etc. makes emerging memories the best replacement for traditional non-volatile memories. Next generation memory technologies covered in this report are MRAM, PCRAM, FeRAM and memristor also called as ReRAM. Out of these memories, only MRAM and FeRAM have reasonable market share and they are quite commercialized in the market. PCRAM has very marginal market and memristor is set to enter the market by the end of 2013.

The major drivers for the next generation memory market are faster switching time, high endurance and power efficient. 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 processes which causes drawbacks like instability and low write endurance rate in some of the memories. As mentioned, these memories are 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 next generation memories is its design cost. 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 function volatile and non-volatile. So the early adoption of such memories will be the crucial for the companies.

The companies currently involved in next generation memory market are Samsung (South Korea), SK Hynix (South Korea), Micron (U.S.), Elpida (Japan), Toshiba (Japan), Powerchip (Taiwan), Winbond (Taiwan), Fujitsu (Japan), Nanya (Taiwan), Rambus (U.S.), Everspin Technology (U.S.), IDT Incorporated (U.S.), HP (U.S.) etc.

Memories’ have become the vital part in semiconductor and related industry. It can be seen as ubiquitous component in computer storage and consumer electronics sectors. In addition, these sectors are the major drivers for global memory market. However, Memory is an essential component of computing devices. This indispensability has led to stagnation on technology and business fronts. Major reason for this stagnation is the imbalance between demand and supply. Companies tend to increase more and more fab capacity thereby increasing supply of memory. This has affected the average selling price of the memories, which is constantly falling year-on-year. Companies are now reducing their fab capacity to meet the demands and trigger the prices of memory.

There are some of the existing memory technologies such as DRAM, SRAM and flash, which have captured most of the market. DRAM has been the first choice for computers and storage and will remain the crucial component in computers and storage electronics. On the other side, flash memories have been the vital component for consumer electronics. The emergence of next generation memory technologies will affect the existing memories such as DRAM and flash. Next generation are considered as the replacement for traditional memories, moreover traditional non-volatile memories. 

This report describes the traditional memory technologies as well emerging non-volatile memory technologies or next generation memories, with the special coverage given to emerging non-volatile memories or next generation memories. Traditional memories covered in this report are DRAM, SRAM and flash (NAND and NOR). Next generation or emerging non-volatile memories covered in this report are MRAM, FeRAM, PCRAM and memristor (ReRAM). Forecasting for both the memory types is provided in this report from the period of 2012 to 2017 with 2011 as a base number.

There are numerous advantages of next generation memories, which are mentioned in this report. However, one of the major issues for these memories is the cost of memory design. The design cost for such memories are high as compared to existing memories, which is expected to drill down as manufacturing process improve year-on-year. Companies like Samsung (South Korea), SK Hynix (South Korea), Micron (U.S.), Fujitsu (Japan), Ramtron (U.S.) etc. are actively involved in the next generation memory market.

This report describes the market dynamics of next generation memory technologies, which comprises of drivers, restraints along with their impact analysis matrix. Impact analysis matrix depicts the impact of particular driver and restraint on the market at present and future impact on the market. This report also throws light on the huge opportunities that comes with next generation memories.
