Non-volatile memory (NVM) or non-volatile storage is one of the most widely used silicon-based semiconductor memories, which facilitate permanent storage and backup to the crucial data. In addition, NVM devices are electrically programmable and erasable to store changes in a particular location within the storage device and to retain that change even after power outage. Hard disk, magnetic tape, and floppy disks are the most common examples of NVM, which utilize user-configurable technologies to enable the end-user access the stored data. NVM primarily aims to deliver faster access of the data while consuming less energy. Additionally, storage, server, and application vendors actively work to upgrade the existing technologies and develop new ones to optimize the performance of NVM, so as to make them a viable substitute of dynamic RAM (DRAM) for several applications.
Presently, enterprises are more focused to adopt efficient storage devices to enable better end-user satisfaction. NVM has gained popularity in various industries including consumer electronics, IT & telecom, BFSI, and healthcare, owing to its supreme benefits such as high-speed random access of data and low power consumption. Moreover, it also offers long term data storage and backup facility of the end-user data. NVM finds various applications in across industries such as consumer electronics, manufacturing, and mobile computing, which further supports the market growth. However, low storage density and low write endurance rate hamper the market growth. Irrespective of these challenges, emergence of several advanced storage technologies such as 3D XPoint, MRAM, SONOS, and NRAM is expected to provide huge opportunities for market growth.
