NOR Flash market through 2013: Asia Pacific leads the pack

(September 15, 2010 – BUSINESS WIRE) — Research and Markets added "Global NOR Flash Market 2009-2013" by Technavio Insights to their report offering. The Global NOR Flash Market 2009-2013 report forecasts the NOR Flash memory market to grow at a CAGR of 5.4%, with the Asia-Pacific and China (APAC) region witnessing highest growth rate.

Major NOR Flash growth drivers include: 

  • Low power consumption of just 1.8V, which makes it compatible for the latest mobile phone designs
  • High performance capabilities, such as Multi-Bank Structure (16 banks), Read while Programming/ Erasing, etc, which is expanding their usage to other products such as projectors, set-top boxes, servers, etc.
  • High speed read application, which make them popular in portable devices such as cellular phones and PDAs
  • Block locking capabilities of NOR Flash devices help protect the block from accidental writes, which is preferred, as it allows software to protect blocks against inadvertent changes.

However, the market is facing some challenges which can inhibit the growth. For example NOR Flash devices are more expensive compared to NAND Flash devices, which discourage the customers from using NOR Flash devices. That also applies to extremely slow write and erase capabilities compared to NAND Flash devices.
