Mastering a 3-d layout of cells has paved the way to higher density Flash memory while maintaining technological standards. This is due to interest producers to 3D Flash memory NAND. Although analysts said Allied Market Research, 3D and 2D ousts NAND NAND completely its production volumes in coming years will grow.
if the 2015 market 3D NAND was estimated at 5.2 billion dollars, by the year 2022 it will exceed 39 billion dollars. These percentages correspond to the average annual growth to 33.7% in the period from 2016 to the year 2022.
the majority of 3D NAND Flash memory used in consumer electronics, a leader in the geographical distribution of the Asia-Pacific region, which in 2015 year accounted for more than 43% of the total supply. This is not surprising, since in the specified region includes China (its share in the region — 33%). Main producers of Flash memory are Samsung Electronics, Toshiba, SK Hynix, Micron, Intel, and SanDisk.
