Research and Markets: Global NAND Flash Market 2014-2018 with Intel, Micron Technology, Samsung, SK Hynix & Toshiba Dominating
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gmrkd6/global_nand_flash)
has announced the addition of the "Global
NAND Flash Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Global NAND Flash Memory market will grow at a CAGR of 10.7 percent
over the period 2013-2018.
The growth of the Global NAND Flash market is driven by several factors,
of which an increase in the sales of smartphones and tablet PCs is one
of the major drivers. For instance, smartphone vendors such as Nokia and
Samsung (News - Alert) are increasingly integrating NAND flash chips in their latest
models. Therefore, the growing sale of smartphones integrated with high
densities of NAND flash is boosting the growth of the Global NAND Flash
The declining ASP of NAND flash is a major trend emerging in the Global
NAND Flash market. Some of the major reasons for this are low raw
material and manufacturing costs and increasig R&D spending by
manufacturers. The declining ASP of NAND flash is likely to increase its
adoption by end-user segments. It is also likely to facilitate
smartphone, SSD, computing device, consumer electronics device, and
tablet PC manufacturers to expand their target market. In addition, the
reducing ASP is most likely to increase the number of applications for
NAND flash, thereby contributing to the growth of this market during the
Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in the market
is the declining sales of ultrabooks. An ultrabook is a high-end,
ultra-thin, portable notebook equipped with a technologically advanced
Intel (News - Alert) core processor. Owing to several factors such as lack of
awareness, high ASPs, and availability of potential substitutes, the
market is witnessing low adoption of ultrabooks. This in turn has a
negative impact on the demand for SSDs in the Global NAND Flash market.
