Global Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM ) Market 2009-2013 by InfinitiResearch

VIEWS: 55 PAGES: 18

Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) is a type of Random Access Memory (RAM) which stores each bit of information on a transistor-capacitor combination.
DRAM, is the most common form of RAM. Random Access Memory (RAM) is a form of computer data storage. It stores the data on Integrated Circuits, where the data can be accessed in order. In DRAM, the data is stored in form of 0's and 1's in an electronically charged network, called memory. DRAM stores all bit (binary data) in capacitors and it has to be periodically refreshed as the capacitors leak charge to avoid the information fades. DRAM is called dynamic due to its refreshment property.
Recently, the DRAM market is witnessing a rise in prices. Shortage in supply of DRAM, is one of the major drivers for this rise. Both DRAM shipments and average selling prices (ASPs) are increasing due to stronger-than-anticipated demand for PCs and tight supplies.
DRAM circuits are cheaper to manufacture than Static Random Access Memory (SRAM) transistors, and can hold significantly larger amount of memory. Because of its lower cost, DRAM is the most popular form of RAM memory, and can be found in almost any type of electronic device. These days, DRAMs with a capacity of 2 GB are available in the market.
However, factors such as high consumption of power, need for constant refresh, information loss are hindering the growth of this market.
This report by Technavio Insights will highlight the scope of the Dynamic Random Access Memory market, along with future forecasts, trends, drivers, and challenges.

1. Introduction

Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) is the most common form of Random Access
Memory (RAM). DRAM stores each bit of information in memory cells with a paired transistor
and capacitor requiring constant refreshing. DRAM is called dynamic as it must be
constantly refreshed to prevent data loss.




Random Access Memory(RAM) is a form of computer data storage, which stores data on
Integrated Circuits. DRAM, the common form of RAM, stores data in the form of 0's and
1's. All bit (binary data) are stored in capacitors, which have to be periodically refreshed to
avoid leak charge and information fades from the capacitor.

The DRAM segment market is growing steadily. The market shows a significant increase
this year (2010) compared to the previous years. It is fueled by a strong increase in the
selling price. The DRAM shipments and average selling prices surged in the first quarter of
2010, due to stronger than anticipated demand for PCs (personal computers) and tight
supplies. Further, the CAGR for the forthcoming years is estimated to show a significant
increase.

These days, DRAM is being preferred over Static Random Access Memory (SRAM), as the
circuits of the former are cheaper to manufacture. Besides, owing to comparatively lower
cost, DRAM is the most popular form of RAM . Further, due to its simplicity and lower cost,
it now being used in many electronic devices.

Despite the advantages that DRAM offers, there exist certain factors, such as high
consumption of power, need for constant refresh, information loss, which are hindering the
growth of this market.

This report highlights the scope of the Global Dynamic Random Access Memory market
2009-2013, along with forecasts, trends, drivers, and challenges.
