Next-Generation Memory Market Size

Next-Generation Memory Market size was valued at over USD 6.7 billion in 2023 and is estimated to register a CAGR of over 24.8% between 2024 & 2032. Increasing interest in IoT devices is propelling the market expansion.

Next-Generation Memory Market

IoT devices produce big data that need to be stored and analyzed effectively, owing to which there is an increasing requirement for advanced memory technologies. Next-gen memory solutions provide many benefits, such as their compact size & large data storing capacity and low power consumption, which are tailor-made to suit IoT-related needs & applications such as smart meters and connected cars, among others.

This next-generation memory market has witnessed significant growth in response to the increasing demand for non-volatile memory products. Critical applications that require constant storage such as enterprise storage, data centers, automotive electronics & IoT devices do not prefer volatile memory as it does not retain data when power is switched off. Against traditional non-volatile memories such as NAND flash & Hard Disk Drives (HDDs), next-generation memory technologies including Resistive RAM (ReRAM), Phase-Change Memory (PCM), and Magnetic RAM (MRAM) are significantly advantageous due to their faster access times, decreased power consumption & higher density.

In the effort to come up with next generation memory, there are a lot of issues. The desire for faster speeds, more capacities and lower power consumption in memory technology is also costly. This is compounded by the reality that introducing new technology into current systems and norms presents its own set of problems. For instance, overcoming physical limitations that are inherent in emerging memory technologies such as phase change or resistive random-access memories requires extensive research and development.

Next-Generation Memory Market Trends

High-Performance Computing (HPC) is becoming increasingly sought after, thus making it the primary growth driver in the market. Current scientific simulations, artificial intelligence, deep learning, and data analytics require huge amounts of data and large-scale processing capacities. These are memories with higher bandwidths due to their emerging technologies which consist of Resistive RAM (ReRAM), Phase-Change Memory (PCM), and Magnetic RAM (MRAM).

They are ideal for HPC environments because of these features. In November 2023, Altair, a HPC and AI firm, introduced Altair HPCWorks; an HPC and cloud platform. It has an AI-driven user portal that includes advanced HPC monitoring/reporting tools for easier cloud scaling as well as next-gen distributed workflow tech.

Data storage and processing are the prominent trends in the next-generation memory market. The demand for faster memory solutions has been driven by the massive data volumes brought about by Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning etc. These solutions are more efficient and save energy to store & process big data. In comparison to traditional memory solutions, next-generation memory technologies such as Resistive RAM (ReRAM), Phase-Change Memory (PCM) and Magnetic RAM (MRAM) provide both fast, durable and low power consuming products.

Next-Generation Memory Market Analysis

Next-Generation Memory Market, By Memory Wafer, 2022 - 2032, (USD Billion)

Based on memory wafer size, the market is segmented into 200 mm and 300 mm. The 300 mm segment held the largest market share of over 55% in 2023. Benefits of moving to larger wafers such as 300mm include an increase in efficiency during production, better yield rates, and lower prices for manufacturing per unit.

Additionally, newer generation memories like Resistive RAM (ReRAM), Phase-Change Memory (PCM), and Magnetic RAM (MRAM) will benefit from the economies of scale via 300mm wafer fabrication because it allows for higher volumes at affordable costs. Again, through using 300mm domain makes semiconductor manufacturers take up more advanced process nodes and get higher chip densities which enhance the performance and raise storage capacities in future memory devices.

Next-Generation Memory Market  Share, By Technology, 2023

Based on technology, the next-generation memory market is segmented into nonvolatile memories and volatile memories. Nonvolatile memories is further sub segmented into SRAM, magneto resistive random-access memory, Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM), Resistive Random Access Memory (ReRAM), nano RAM, and others. Volatile memories are further sub segmented into Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) and High Bandwidth Memory (HBM). The nonvolatile memories segment is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 26% from 2024 to 2032.
