The report, now available on ASDReports, recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global DRAM Market: Micron Technology, Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix and Winbond Electronics
Commenting on the report, an analyst from The report’s team said: “The global DRAM market is witnessing an increase in consolidation, which is expected to continue during the forecast period. The existing vendors and new entrants are taking the acquisitive route to either enter the market or broaden their portfolio of offerings. For instance, Micron Technology acquired Elpida in July 2013. Earlier, in 2012 Micron Technology was ranked fourth and Elpida third in the global mobile DRAM market. With this acquisition, Micron Technology is expected to strengthen its foothold in the market.”
According to the report, the smartphone segment is one of the major application segments for mobile DRAM. The use of mobile DRAM in smartphones is increasing at a rapid rate, primarily because of the increased demand for high memory density in these devices. Mobile DRAM is available as an integrated component for smartphones. Depending on the different versions of smartphones, the mobile DRAM content varies between 178 Mb and 4 Gb. The increase in sales of smartphones is expected to foster the demand for mobile DRAMs, making smartphones the major revenue-generating source in the global mobile DRAM market.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the declining ASP of mobile DRAM.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
