This statistic highlights DRAM Market Share by Manufacturers Worldwide, across Micron, Samsung, SK Hynix, Nanya, Powerchip and others, reported from Q1 2016 onwards.

DRAM – Dynamic random-access memory is a type of semiconductor memory or RAM. It stores every bit of data on a separate capacitor. A DRAM chip holds more data than an SRAM (static RAM) chip of the same size. The capacitors in DRAM need to be constantly refreshed because of the charge within the capacitor leaks. There are different types of DRAM:

  • SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM) – It is the memory standard for modern computers.
  • DDR SDRAM (Double data rate) –This technology is set to replace SDRAM.
  • RDRAM (Rambus DRAM)– It was developed by Rambus Inc. and is set to replace SDRAM.
  • BEDO DRAM (Burst EDO DRAM) – It is a type of EDO DRAM, but faster.
  • EDO DRAM (Extended data out DRAM) – EDO DRAM was an update on FPM and provided a better speed.
  • FPM DRAM (Fast Page mode DRAM)- FPM DRAM is just a little bit faster than regular DRAM.

There are a few different versions of DDR DRAM, which have been launched in different phases and are currently being used in different technological applications. As of today, DDR4 is being used in the latest smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy S8 and Google Pixel.

The cost to manufacture a DRAM chip is significantly lower as compared to SRAM as they require only a single transistor (a device used to switch electronic signals), whereas SRAM requires six. DRAM is the most common type of memory found in PCs. DRAM is generally used for purposes that require a high level of memory density. The DRAM chip has certain disadvantages as well i.e.- they have relatively low operational speed and are classified as volatile memory (storage that maintains data only when the computer is powered). DRAM technology is developing rapidly to meet the constantly demanding requirements of new equipment.

The Global DRAM Market was valued at USD 44.65 Billion in 2018 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 28.70% over the next five years. The major drivers in the market for DRAM are the new emerging technologies and devices in the field of computer devices. Due to the increasing demand in these fields the DRAM market will witness growth in the next few years. The Asia – Pacific region shows great potential to dominate the global DRAM market due to the increased number of manufacturers, especially in Taiwan and South Korea. Though the APAC region will dominate the market, North America is the fastest-growing region across the world in terms of market share.

DRAM Market Share by Manufacturers Worldwide

The global DRAM market is competitive and most of the vendors are concentrated in one region. The established players hold the majority of the market share and it is difficult for new players to enter the market since the lack the technological know-how.

The top three manufacturers are Korea based Samsung, US-based Micron Technology, Inc., and Korea based SK Hynix, Inc.

The market share for the top players in the market as of Q4 2019 are as follows:

  1. Samsung – 46.1%
  2. Sk Hynix – 28.6%
  3. Micron Technology – 19.9%
  4. Nanya Technology – 3.1%
  5. Winbond – 1.0%
  6. Powerchip – 0.5%
  7. Others – 0.9%

As you can see Samsung and SK Hynix alone account for almost 73.4 % percent of the market share. Samsung’s share rose highest in Q3 2019 — highest since 2017.
