1. Introduction


NOR Flash is a computer chip with a non-volatile computer storage that can be electrically
erased and reprogrammed. It retains the data when the power is turned off without being
removed from the circuit board. This device is used to store and run code for small
capacities. NOR Flash has a storage space up to 32 Mb. The NOR Flash technology is found
as embedded design in lower-end set-top boxes, mobile handset, and BIOS (basic
input/output) chips.



NOR and NAND technologies are dominating the non-volatile Flash Memory market today.
NOR was invented by Intel in 1988, and revolutionized the market that was then dominated
by EPROM (Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) and EEPROM (Electrically Erasable
Programmable Read-Only Memory) devices. NOR Flash memory devices are used in many
industries as they offer easy memory interface and are suitable for code execution. Further,
NOR Flash devices also have excellent read performance, which has helped them
penetrating the market of EPROM and EEPROM devices.



With the increase use of mobile phone, bank cards, and USB flash devices, the NOR Flash
devices are in huge demand. With the significant increase in the demand of DRAM, the NOR
Flash Memory market revenue is projected to grow, driven by higher demand and an
improved macroeconomic environment. The NOR Flash market now comprises a wide range
of electronic products other than cell phones, such as motherboards, disk drives and
networking sector. Further, since the IT market is developing, it is aiding growth of the
NOR Flash devices. Today, 50 percent of the total shipment of the nor flash devices consist
of PC market applications.



This report highlights scope of the Global NOR Flash market 2009-2013, along with trends,
drivers, growth inhibitors and a few major vendors in the market.

DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Global NOR Flash Market 2009-2013 report by Technavio Insights forecasts the NOR Flash market to grow at a CAGR of 5.4 percent, with APAC region witnessing highest growth rate. The major growth drivers include: - Low power consumption of just 1.8V, which makes it compatible for the latest mobile phone designs - High performance capabilities, such as Multi-Bank Structure (16 banks), Read while Programming/ Erasing, etc, which is expanding their usage to other products such as projectors, set-top boxes, servers, etc. - High speed read application, which make them popular in portable devices such as cellular phones and PDAs - Block locking capabilities of NOR Flash devices help protect the block from accidental writes, which is preferred, as it allows software to protect blocks against inadvertent changes. However, the market is facing some challenges which can inhibit the growth. For example NOR Flash devices are more expensive compared to NAND Flash devices which de-motivate the customers from using NOR Flash devices. That also applies to extremely slow write and erase capabilities compared to NAND Flash devices. For the purpose of this report, the Global NOR Flash market refers to a computer chip with a non-volatile computer storage that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed, and is used to store and run code for small capacities. This report analyzes NOR Flash market’s recent performance and provides worldwide market revenue and growth rates from 2009 through 2013. It provides the market segmentation and forecasts for the market in each region (Americas, EMEA, APAC) for the period from 2009 through to 2013. It includes comprehensive analysis of various trends and changes taking place in the NOR Flash market around the globe. The report explains the factors influencing market growth and also inhibitors preventing their adoption. It also provides basic profiles of some of the leading vendors in the market
