South Asia and the Pacific have a huge populations, creating a huge demand for consumer electronic devices. This region has a large IT & Telecom industry and cloud implementation is occurring at a good rate, which allows this region to have the highest CAGR.

Country wise insights

Large Market for Consumer Electronics due to High Disposable Income Driving the Demand for Memory Integrated Circuits in the US

A certain trend among manufacturers and producers of consumer products can be noted that the cheaper version of any product can be analog or mechanical in nature, but as the prices go up, they can be automated or digital in nature, allowing the memory-integrated circuits market to grow. This, however, may not always be the case, for example, wristwatches and stoves, but can be applicable in the case of robotic vacuum cleaners, smart TVs, and electronic toothbrushes.

The general population in the US has a higher disposable income, allowing them to spend more money on consumer electronics. This country also has a wide-scale implementation of security cameras for public safety and the use of gaming consoles is much higher than in many other countries in this region. For these reasons, the US is a market leader for memory-integrated circuits.

Demand for Memory Integrated Circuits Driven by Large Population in China

China is the most populated country globally and also has the largest users of smartphones for the same reason. What also needs to be noted is that China is also the manufacturing hub for several electronic devices for several multinational companies.

Apart from multinational vendors, there is also a strong presence of domestic vendors both within the country and outside China. For these reasons, China is a formidable market for memory-integrated circuits.

Growing Population and Industrialization are Driving the Growth of Memory Integrated Circuits in India

India follows China and has the highest number of smartphone users, attributed to the fact that India is the second most populated country in the world. The country has made progress on various fronts in terms of infrastructure, industrialization, and the economy, suggesting that there was the right implementation of electronic devices for these developmental purposes, and now that the economy of the country has grown, it has also raised the spending ability of the Indian middle class, allowing the consumer electronic market to grow as well.

These factors contribute to the growth of the memory integrated circuits market in India, which is also estimated to be the fastest-growing country over the forecast period.

Why Flash Memory Has the Largest Market Share for the Memory Integrated Circuits Market by Memory Type?

Flash memory chips have the largest market share because of the fact that several digital devices and computers like smartphones and computers have two types of memory, volatile memory, which is the RAM, and non-volatile memory, the ROM which contains the data necessary for the functioning and operation of the device and is basic to any device.

Flash memory is non-volatile by characteristic and is used for creating ROMs, hard disks, and solid-state drives, this allowed flash memory to hold the largest market share for the year 2021 of 32.5%.

Why do Mobile Phones have the Largest Market Share in the Memory Integrated Circuits Market?

Mobile phones have successfully penetrated into the consumer market and have become a necessity, smartphone is one such device that has become a necessary requirement for various purposes in today’s age, due to this reason, an individual may not have any other electronic device, but will most likely possess a smartphone. They are also affordable compared to numerous other electronic devices and can also act as a cheaper replacement for numerous other electronic devices such as music players, TVs, cameras, etc.

Due to this reason, mobile phones had the largest market share of 34.4% for the year 2021.

Competitive Landscape

The memory integrated circuit manufacturers are primarily companies that deal with electronic components. East Asian and North American companies tend to dominate the market in this domain however the market dominance can differ from company to company depending upon the memory type.

  • In September 2022, Alliance Memory announced the expansion of its CMOS DDR4 SDRAMS with new versions of the product. The new chips were smaller in size, consumed less power, and were faster.
  • In December 2021, Intel Corporation sold its NAND and SSD businesses to the South Korean company SK Hynix for US$7.6 billion. This deal was announced in October 2020. However, Intel will still continue to manufacture NAND wafers and hold IP rights to certain products and designs until March 2025, when the remaining assets will be handed over to SK Hynix.
