Digitimes Research: Non-PC DRAM bit-growth rate to reach 46% in 2014
Nobunaga Chai, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 8 May 2014]

The bit-growth rate of non-PC DRAM chips is expected to reach 46% in 2014, led by strong demand for mobile, specialty and graphics DRAM parts, according to Digitimes Research.

Powered by demand from the cloud computing and big data sectors, the bit-growth rate of server DRAM chips will grow by anannual rate of 27.2% in 2014, slightly lower than the 28.8% of a year earlier but much higher than a projected 9.7% rise for standard DRAM in 2014.

The rate of bit-growth for mobile DRAM parts is expected to top as high as 62.7% in 2014, buoyed by brisk sales of smartphones and tablets, said Digitimes Research.

Meanwhile, demand for graphics DRAM is likely to grow at an annual rate of 42%, propelled by a several-fold increase in use of graphics DRAM chips in Sony's Playstation 4 and Microsoft's new Xbox One as well as by hardware upgrades of multimedia devices.
