The global spintronics market is estimated to reach USD 967.8 Millionby 2026, registering a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period of 2020–2026.
Spintronics (spin electronics) refers to the study of the intrinsic spin of the electrons and its associated magnetic moment, in addition to fundamental electronic charge in solid-state devices.Spintronic devices are used in the field of mass-storage devices. It is used to compress massive amounts of data into a small area, as an instance, approximately one trillion bits per square inch (1.5 Gbit/mm²) or roughly 1 TB data can be stored on a single-sided 3.5″ diameter disc. This technology helps in creating a prototype device which used in industry as a read head and a memory-storage cell is the giant-magneto resistive (GMR) sandwich structure which consists of alternating ferromagnetic and non-magnetic metal layers. Depending on the relative orientation of the magnetizations in the magnetic layers, the device resistance changes from small (parallel magnetizations) to large (antiparallel magnetizations). Spintronic technology in general holds promises for digital electronics. It has been tested in mass-storage components namely hard drives.
The global spintronics market has been segmented based on type, application, and region.
