The article presents findings of a report titled 'Computer Memory: Important Trends and Directions' by Business Communications Co., according to which the worldwide market for semiconductor memory was valued at nearly $47 billion in 2002. The volatile memory market share will rise from 74to nearly 78 1241328n 2007, assuming that dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips will continue to be the main memory element used for personal computers (PC) and that new applications of flash memory will not keep pace with the overall growth in PC, workstation and network equipment memory requirements. The year 2007 is expected to be a low point for flash sales and a high point for DRAM revenue. Beyond 2007, MRAM will become the commonly used memory chip for the main memory of PC and the main memory network server chip.
