NAND Continues to Dig New Foundations for Itself
With its ever expanding set of applications, NAND flash memory is the most rapidly growing non-volatile memory product in the world. NAND can be found in smartphones, tablets, solid state drives (SSDs) and a wide range of other consumer products, including other devices that may or may not be associated with NAND as often. For example, low-density NAND such as NOR flash can be found in set top (STB) boxes, embedded products, home appliances, and other similar products.

Automotive Semi Penetration Increases Lure Industry Competitors
The automotive semiconductor sector has been showing growth trends for a number of quarters now, thanks to the continuous development of safety and efficiency solutions as well as the increase in infotainment (in-vehicle information and entertainment) offerings. Car makers have been offering both of these features for a number of years now, but the differences in offerings are becoming more nuanced and focused on the extent and sophistication of onboard electronic offerings. As a result, the market for automotive semi chips is forecasted to grow by 6.1% to US $27.9 billion this year, according to IHS as reported by Automotive News.
