Pune, India, May, 2019/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future published a Cooked research report on “Serial NOR Flash Market Research Report - Global Forecast to 2027” – Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast to 2025
Global Serial NOR Flash Market is set to exhibit a compound annual growth rate of 4.20% finds Market Research Future (MRFR’s) latest study. Over the years, serial NOR flash has undergone massive transformation, leading to increased memory size and physical interface options. It is used in computation and data storage applications. A number of end-use electronic products such as AMOLED panels, touch screens and display controllers comprise serial NOR flash. Rapid urbanization and technological advances can be linked with the exponential growth of the user base of consumer electronics worldwide. Demand for portable electronic devices which are light-weight and have a stable memory is one the rise. Such devices are purpose-built and are used on a daily basis.
Serial NOR has emerged as an apt alternative to parallel NOR, owing to higher pin-count, space efficiency, system cost, reduced chip cost, and enhanced performance. Growing number of consumer electronics with AMOLED panels, the rise in demand for touch and display integration (TDDI) chips and use of serial NOR chip in IoT-related components are some of the key factors fueling the demand for serial NOR flash. As technology trends such as industrial automation and artificial intelligence pick up steam, new avenues are likely to emerge for serial NOR flash.
