About the NAND Market

Flash memory is an electronic non-volatile computer memory storage medium that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed. NAND is a subcategory of flash memory and is a nonvolatile storage technology that does not require power to retain data. NAND flash memory uses floating-gate transistors to store information without a power supply. NAND, especially when part of a Solid State Drive (SSD) is a faster, more reliable replacement of the magnetic disks used in Hard Disk Drives (HDD). While NAND is considerably more expensive than traditional hard drives, its price has been steadily falling.

NAND Market Size, 2015- 2024

NAND Market

The chart shows the NAND flash market size over a forecast period from 2015 to 2024. The size of the NAND market was $53B in 2020 but is expected to grow 9% in 2021. The increase in the NAND market from 2016 to 2018 was caused by a major supply shortage, however several new NAND plants came online in 2019, causing NAND prices and the NAND market to decline. As NAND supply and demand stabilize, SSDs replace HDDs, and the demand for NAND flash continues to grow, the NAND market is expected to expand over time.

NAND Market Growth Drivers

NAND Market growth in dollar terms has been slow in the past year because of oversupply issues. However, unit sales of NAND have been quickly increasing. The market is expected to see a steady uptick in growth in 2020 and beyond as supply and demand stabilize, solid-state drive (SSD) adoption continues, and 5G drives ever-increasing storage needs both locally on smartphone and IoT devices, and remotely in Data Centers. The current macro trends of growth in AI and machine learning, mobility, and connectivity are further favorable growth drivers for the NAND market.
