TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Mobile DRAM Market: Micron Technology Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., SK Hynix Inc., and Winbond Electronics Corp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's team said: "The Global Mobile DRAM market is witnessing increasing consolidation, which is expected to continue during the forecast period. The existing vendors and new entrants are taking the acquisitive route to either enter the market or broaden their portfolio of offerings. For instance, Micron Technology acquired Elpida in July 2013. Earlier, Micron Technology was ranked fourth and Elpida third in the Global Mobile DRAM market. With this acquisition, Micron Technology is expected to strengthen its foothold in the market. Thus, the increasing number of mergers and acquisitions is expected to augur well for the growth of the market during the forecast period."

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increasing adoption of mobile DRAMs in smartphones. Smartphones are major application areas for mobile DRAMs. The use of DRAM content in smartphones is increasing with the development of smartphones with high memory capacities.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the declining ASP of mobile DRAMs. The declining ASP of mobile DRAMs has had an adverse effect on the profitability of the market vendors, thereby stunting the growth of this market.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
