DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/0e1e10/global_and_chinese) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Memory Industry Report, 2011" report to their offering.
In 2011, the standard DRAM saw a slowdown in growth but tablet PCs and smart phones enable the CAGR of the Mobile DRAM shipments to soar to 175%. In Q1 2011, the Mobile DRAM accounted for 15.6% of the total output of global DRAM.
According to the ranking concerning revenue from memory products of DRAM vendors in H1 2011, South Korea-based Samsung and Hynix ranked the top two.
Samsung will transform its process technology of DRAM from 3x nm to 2x nm, and that of NAND Flash from 27 nm to 21 nm. In Q1 2011, the proceeds from DRAM, NAND Flash and MCP accounted for 54.4%, 42.3% and 3.3% of Samsung's memory revenue respectively. Benefiting from the substantial growth in the output of 35 nm products, Samsung's memory occupied 40% market shares in Q2. As for Mobile DRAM, Samsung has mass-produced low-power LPDDR2 with 30 nm process.
The current process technology of Micron Technology is 42 nm process and 37-nm process is still in the testing phase. In Q1 2011, the sales of DRAM, NAND Flash and NOR shared 47%, 31% and 19% of Micron's total revenue respectively. After its reorganization in 2010, Spansion is devoted to embedded memory and agrees to cross license their patented products with Samsung.
The growth of Winbond is mainly motivated by Nor Flash, of which Serial Nor Flash made up around 90% of Flash shipment. In Q1 2011, the sales of Nor Flash, Specialty DRAM and Mobile DRAM accounted for 31%, 36% and 28% of Winbond's total revenue respectively.
