Based on type, the global flash memory market has been segmented into NAND Flash Memory, NOR Flash Memory. The NAND flash memory segment accounted for the larger market share of 73.68 % in 2019, with the highest market value; it is expected to register a CAGR of 5.20% during the forecast period. Flash memory, also known as flash storage, is a type of non-volatile memory that helps in erasing data in units known as blocks and rewrites the data. Flash memory is widely used for storing data and data transfer in consumer devices, enterprise systems, and other industrial applications. NAND flash memory is one of the types of flash storage that is used to accelerate the performance of I/O (Input-Output) intensive applications. NOR flash memory plays an integral part in embedded systems. It allows quick access to any location in the memory array. It is faster to read than NAND flash, but it is more expensive and takes longer to erase the data and rewrite revised data. Therefore, NAND flash memory can more cost-effectively support smaller erase blocks compared to NOR flash.
