NOR Flash Faces Dim Prospects in an Overly Crowded Field of ProducersThe market suffered further indignities as 2012 turned out to be the worst in over 10 yearsApril 17, 2013
The NOR flash market is set for another challenging year in 2013 as a packed field of manufacturers all vie for a piece of a gradually shrinking pie. Global revenue for NOR this year is set to decline to approximately $3.41 billion, down from the $3.48 billion in 2012, with the projected 2013 takings representing just 40 percent of the industry’s $9.3 billion peak in 2004. While the business overall has been active in establishing multimemory strategies designed to bolster diversification and boost fading NOR prospects, the projected revenue trajectory for the future remains discouraging.
NOR Flash Memory Braces for Lower Revenue AheadSPI NOR also forecast to overtake parallel NOR within the marketApril 01, 2013
NOR flash memory faces reduced prospects ahead, having already lost the battle to rival NAND flash memory in mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, according to an IHS iSuppli Mobile & Embedded Memory market tracker report from information and analytics provider IHS.
Industry revenue this year for NOR flash is forecast to reach $3.41 billion, down from $3.48 billion in 2012. The revenue levels in recent years are a far cry from the blockbuster days of NOR a decade ago, such as when NOR pulled down a record $9.0 billion in 2004, its best year ever.
NOR revenue will further recede to $3.41 billion in 2013 and to $3.25 billion in 2014, before recovering slightly in 2015 and 2016, and then moderating to $3.27 billion by 2016.
Surprise! NAND Flash Market Defies Trends and Grows to Record Level in Q4March 26, 2013Despite facing five consecutive quarters of decline and a slowdown in consumption in smartphones and tablets, the global market for NAND flash memory pulled off a surprise growth...
Spansion Overtakes Micron in NOR Revenue for First Time Since 2009Overall NOR revenue to $837 million in Q2September 04, 2012Spansion Inc. during the second quarter surpassed NOR flash revenue leader Micron Technology Inc. for the first time in three years, as the once-bankrupt company demonstrated strength in several memory-related efforts during the period, according to an IHS iSuppli Mobile & Embedded Memory market brief from information and analytics provider IHS.
California-based Spansion for the second quarter came in ahead of guidance with $233 million in revenue, up from $219 million in the earlier quarter. It was the first time that Spansion headed industry revenue since the first quarter of 2009, and its return to the top sent former leader Micron, of Idaho, tumbling to the runner-up spot. Micron, in tandem with the operations of Numonyx—its 2010 acquisition—counted revenue estimated at $217 million, down from $221 million.
The other major players of the NOR flash market included Macronix International with $120 million, up from $105 million; Winbond Electronics Corp. with $95 million, up from $76 million; and Eon Silicon Solution with $24 million, down from $25 million. The three are headquartered in Taiwan.
