The DRAM and NAND markets have a history of cyclicality and volatility, but consolidation and diversifying end demand have led to record revenues and profits for the memory suppliers over the past few years. The long-term outlook for the industry appears bright, but will new entrants from China change the narrative?
The DRAM and NAND memory markets have experienced unprecedented growth over the past 2 years, with combined revenues expected to reach $170 billion in 2018, up from $77 billion in 2016. Macro demand trends have been extremely positive for the memory markets, led by robust growth in the datacenter and continued strength in mobile, augmented by emerging demand from IoT, AR/VR, autonomous vehicles, and other applications. Trends in machine learning, Big Data, and artificial intelligence, combined with the emergence of 5G provide great opportunities for future growth.


This webcast will examine the current status of the memory markets and future drivers of growth. How have structural changes impacted the memory markets over the past few years? What is expected to fuel growth in the future? What is causing near-term softness in the DRAM and NAND markets, and how long is this situation expected to last? How are the market dynamics different between the two major memory technologies? Is the emergence of domestic memory suppliers in China going to disrupt the market?

Join Yole Développement and System Plus’ webcast for a discussion of these questions, and gain a better understanding of trends within the memory markets from several perspectives, including market and technology, and competitive dynamics.
