Report Highlights

BCC Research expects the global market for circuit elements with memory to grow from essentially zero in the 2012 to 2013 timeframe to $100 million in 2018, and grow to more than $675 million in 2023. This market is expected to show a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 46.5% through the forecast period of 2018 to 2023.

Report Includes

  • An overview of the global market for memresistors, memcapacitors, and meminductors.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data projections for 2014 through 2018 and 2023.
  • Descriptions of the basic technologies behind memresistors, memcapacitors and meminductors as well as their history, challenges that must be overcome to commercialize them, possible time frames for their commercialization; and potential applications.
  • Detailed patent analysis.

Report Scope

The proposed report will describe the basic technologies behind memresistors, memcapacitors and meminductors; their history and current state of development; theoretical advantages and disadvantages; challenges that must be overcome to commercialize them; possible time frames for their commercialization; and potential applications.

The report will focus on memristors, which are much closer to commercialization than the other two basic technologies; types of memristor (e.g. titanium dioxide, polymeric, ferroelectric, spin resistive), their strengths and weaknesses, and expected time to market; applications; and future sales.

The report will highlight the degree to which expected sales represent new markets vs. cannibalizing existing markets and the implications for suppliers’ business strategies. Cannibalization reportedly is a significant concern of developers like Hynix that have a presence in competing markets.

The study format includes the following major elements:

  • Executive summary.
  • Definitions.
  • Historical milestones.
  • Technologies and applications that have the greatest commercial potential through 2023.
  • Detailed market estimates and projections for each application and material during the period 2012 to 2017.
  • General assessment of expected market trends in the longer term (2017 to 2023).
  • Companies, academic and government laboratories that are developing commercial memristors, memcapacitors, and meminductors.
  • Patent analysis.
