Moreover, technological advancement and demand for memory solutions for various electronic devices, including digital cameras, digital set-up boxes, digital book readers, portable terminals, camcorders, and others, are expected to provide numerous growth opportunities in the future.
eMMCs with a density range of 128GB - 256GB accounted for the highest revenue in 2015 owing to the increase in demand for high-capacity memory devices among the urban population and higher prices as compared to other eMMCs available in the market. This range of eMMCs is utilized among mid-range tablets, digital cameras, and phones.
The smartphones application accounted for the highest share of the overall revenue generated by eMMC market in 2014, owing to its high-storage capacity and HD video screening. However, the GPS application is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 20.5% during the period 2016 - 2022. Increase in the number of smartphone users, rise in use of location-based services & mobile applications, and growth in demand for automobile GPS software and other wearable electronic products boost the demand for eMMC cards in GPS-supporting devices.
In 2014, the automotive industry accounted for the highest revenue, owing to the use of eMMCs in ADAS, vehicle infotainment system, GPS system, voice recognition system, and others. It accounted for around 26% share of the global eMMC market revenue in 2014, followed by aerospace & defense sector. Other end users utilizing eMMCs include industrial, healthcare, public, IT & telecom, and others. The industrial sector is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific dominated in 2014, in terms of revenue, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to the increasing use of mobile phones and consumer electronic products. eMMCs have increasingly been adopted as a memory product for cellular devices in India, China, and South Korea owing to the continuous development of the cellular market, including 3G and 4G technologies.
In addition, there has been a significant growth in the eMMC market in China and Japan over the past few years. The ever-increasing market of personal computers and smartphones in China in the recent years has largely contributed to the growth of memory market including eMMC products.
However, LAMEA is projected to grow at the highest CAGR throughout the analysis period. Increasing demand for smartphones and rising number of other electronic devices such as, laptops, digital cameras, and tablets, have increased the adoption of eMMCs in this region.
