Overview of the global DRAM market

The reduced time period of the replacement cycle of smartphones is one of the major DRAM market drivers. The rapid obsolescence due to the launch of newer and advanced versions of smartphones and tablets is compelling consumers to replace the older versions of these devices with updated newer products to access the latest technologies and functionalities. This need to procure upgraded product will drive the demand for DRAMs since DRAM is one of the primary components of mobile devices such as smartphones. Currently, DDR4 is being used in the latest smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Google Pixel. Moreover, with customer affordability being one of the important factors for the growth of electronic device OEMs, companies also focus on product pricing to improve sales. Companies such as Apple introduce limited models and focus on developing and introducing an upgraded version of their product every year. This induces DRAM manufacturers and other component suppliers to introduce upgraded products in a very short period of time. With the constant demand for DRAM and the need for introducing upgraded products, the DRAM market will witness growth during the next few years. According to this DRAM market report, the market will register a CAGR of more than 1% by 2021.  

In terms of geographic regions, APAC accounted for the maximum DRAM market share during 2016 and will continue its market dominance during the next few years. The presence of a number of DRAM manufacturers and OEM suppliers in countries like Taiwan and South Korea is one of the key factors that account for the region’s dominance in this global market. The easy availability of raw materials and cheap labor make it quite easy for manufacturers to set up their base in the region.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global DRAM market is highly competitive and a number of vendors are concentrated in one region. The established players hold the majority of the market share and the need for technological expertise makes it difficult for new players to enter the industry.
