DRAM Market Research, 2032

The Global DRAM Market was valued at $6.2 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $10.2 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2023 to 2032.

A specific kind of semiconductor memory called DRAM is used to hold computer information that is essential to the correct operation of a computer's CPU. Servers, workstations, and personal computers often have this type of random-access memory installed.  With random access, the PC processor may freely access any part of memory directly, as opposed to starting at a specific position and moving sequentially throughout the memory. RAM, which is located close to the CPU of a computer, offers faster data access than solid-state drives and hard disc drives combined.

Dram Market

The main benefits of eDRAM are its simple architecture and single transistor need. In comparison to SRAM, it is also more affordable and offers higher densities. More data may be stored in it, and its memory can be cleared or updated. DRAM volatile memory and high-power consumption in comparison to other choices are its drawbacks. The device requires advanced production, data in storage cells must be updated, and it operates more slowly than SRAM. The DRAM industry has a lot of potential to develop while mobile devices require high-performance, low-power DRAM. The growing number of smartphones in developing countries such as China, India, and Japan would propel market expansion.

At the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market experienced an upturn due to an increase in demand for DRAM. Post pandemic, the industry quickly adjusted as the demand for DRAM grew alongside an increase in sale of scale out and scale up NAS. This shift led to innovation and a subsequent rebound in the market.

Segment Overview

The DRAM Market Outlook is segmented into Type and Application.

Dram Market by Type

By type, the market is classified into SDRAM, DDR SDRAM, DDR5 SDRAM, LPDDR, and others. The SDRAM segment accounted for the largest share in 2022.

Additionally, the development of computing devices, such as ultra-thin laptops and hybrid devices, is anticipated to fuel DRAM market demand throughout the forecast period. Growing data centers, a growing reliance on big data,eDRAM, AI/ML, IoT, industrial and consumer electronics, and ICT infrastructure are some of the causes propelling the DRAM manufacturing industry.

Dram Market by Application
