The Global Semiconductor Memory Market size is expected to reach $127.3 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 7.5% CAGR during the forecast period. Semiconductor memory is an electronic component used as the memory of a computer. Semiconductor memory is an essential part of today’s electronic devices. This is a system in which digital information is retained by the use of IC (Integrated Circuit) technology. The rising demand for high-capacity and low-power memory is growing rapidly as modern advanced portable electronic devices boost overall performance with their reduced size. With the growing proliferation of electronic devices and the need for associated capacity, there is, as predicted, a huge demand for semiconductor memory.

The Semiconductor Memory devices consist of two major types, namely volatile and non-volatile memories. Non-volatile memory includes read-only memory (ROM), programmable read-only memory (PROM), Erasable programmable read-only memory (EPROM), electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) and Flash memory. Volatile memory includes Random Access Memory (RAM), Dynamic Random-Access Memory (DRAM), Static Random-Access Memory (SRAM) and Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory (SDRAM).

Rapid growth in the electronics industry, together with the use of memory-based elements in advanced devices like smart phones, wearable devices and electronic gadgets, is pushing ahead with market growth worldwide. Growing use of automotive and electronic devices, such as Flash ROM and DRAM, fuels the market for embedded gadgets and chips. The lighting and ADAS systems DRAM, Flash ROM and offer higher speeds and better vehicle connectivity.

However, due to restrictions on the worldwide retail of electronics, the COVID19 pandemic is expected to negatively impact over the course of the next few years. In a short period of time, various countries such as Italy, Germany, France, the United States, South Korea and Japan are severely affected. Semiconductors and electronics are therefore expected to suffer major declines in the first half of 2020 due to a decline in trade constraints. Nevertheless, trade in electronics is expected to return to normal levels by the end of the second quarter of 2020.

Based on Type, the market is segmented into DRAM, Flash ROM, SRAM, MRAM and Others. Based on End User, the market is segmented into Consumer Electronics, Automotive, Telecom & IT, Aerospace & Defense, Medical, Industrial and Others. Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.

Jul-2019: Fujitsu Semiconductor released the 8Mbit ReRAM *1 MB85AS8MT. This ReRAM product has been developed with Panasonic Semiconductor Solutions Co., Ltd. The MB85AS8MT is an EEPROM-compatible non-volatile memory with SPI-interface that operates with a wide range of power supply voltages from 1.6V to 3.6V.

Feb-2019: NXP Semiconductors released the K32 microcontroller (MCU) series. The series aimed to advance the energy efficiency of real-time embedded applications and enabled advanced security with physical tamper protection in a wide range of Industrial and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications.

Feb-2019: NXP Semiconductors unveiled the world’s first microcontroller (MCU) based voice control solution qualified with Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service (AVS). This enabled original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to quickly, easily, and inexpensively add voice control to their products, giving their customers access to rich voice experiences with AlexaBased on NXP’s i.MX RT crossover microcontroller (MCU) platform.

Feb-2019: Toshiba Electronic Devices and Storage Corporation launched image recognition SoC (System on Chip) for automotive applications. In this device, SRAM is implemented close to the DNN execution unit, and DNN processing is divided into sub-processing blocks to keep temporal data in the SRAM, reducing DRAM access. Additionally, Toshiba has added a decompression unit to the accelerator.
