3 Big data security analytics techniques

The global DRAM market looks set to grow 25 per cent this year, according to a survey by Nikkei Market Access. Sales are likely to top $27 billion in 2000, the second highest level since 1995 when the sector saw a record year. But memory manufacturers will need to find fresh avenues for their products, or growth may start to slip as early as next year. If DRAM is tied to the PC, its growth will be limited by that of the PC market, the report warned. DRAM production in 2000 will be dominated by a handful of companies – Micron, Samsung, Hyundai and Infineon – taking around 70 per cent of the market between them. Japan, on the other hand, will lose some of its muscle in the market. Japanese manufacturers' combined share of world sales will drop to 25 per cent in 2000, compared to 47 per cent in 1995. This is because many Japanese companies are switching the bulk of their manufacture to memory chips used in mobiles, flash memories and consumer products. ® Related Stories DRAM prices on the up again 1999 a record year for chip sales The chips were up in 1999
