Above 8GB memory segment to hold largest share of DRAM module and components market during the forecast period
Above 8GB memory segment is expected to hold the largest market share in the DRAM module and components market during the forecast period owing to the increasing applications of these DRAMs in resource-heavy applications, especially image or video processing (even 4K video), CAD, or 3D modeling and/or virtual machines. On top of that, video editing and other multimedia will be more effective with more DRAM. Having more than 8GB also comes in handy if the user makes extensive use of virtualization tools such as Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware Workstation, especially if multiple virtual machines are run simultaneously.
Automobiles industry in end-user industries segment is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate during the forecast period
The automobiles segment is expected to grow with the highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to the increasing applications of DRAM module and components in modern automotive for offering features such as infotainment, ADAS, telematics, and D-clusters (digital instrument clusters).
APAC to account for the largest market share during the forecast period
APAC holds the largest market share of the DRAM module and components market and is expected to retain its position as the largest during the forecast period due to the presence of countries such as China and South Korea in the region.
China is a key market for memory devices and continues to grow strongly due to their high demand in the mobile, automotive, and server markets, but it depends on other countries to fulfill its DRAM requirements. With the launch of "Made in China 2025" in 2015, the Chinese government, in partnership with private players, started investing billions of dollars in developing their local semiconductor industry aiming at bridging the gap between domestic production and consumption.
