Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Capital Spending on Memory Devices Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Capital Spending on Memory Devices Market: Samsung Semiconductor, SK Hynix and Micron Technology

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: SanDisk and Toshiba

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Portable electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets become obsolete after a short time because of rapid launches of next-version models by vendors. On average, the replacement cycle is 8-12 months. In the past, the replacement period was much longer. Due to the reduction in the product replacement cycle time, the demand for memory devices for newly launched devices is expected to rise drastically, and this will increase the capital spending on memory devices by semiconductor companies, leading to the growth of market.”

According to the report, the adoption of communication devices and consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets, and smart LED TVs is constantly increasing. As a result of advances in the consumer electronics sector, which have seen the emergence of 3D and UHD TVs and hybrid laptops, the demand for NAND flash and DRAM memory devices will also increase steadily during the forecast period, thus leading to an increase in capital spending on memory devices.

Further, the report states that less time-to-market is one of the major challenges faced by vendors in the global capital spending on memory devices market.
