Circuit elements that store information without the need of a power source would represent a paradigm change in electronics, allowing for low-power computation and storage. In addition, if that information spans a continuous range of values, analog computation may replace the present digital one. Such a concept is also likely to be at the origin of the workings of the human brain and possibly of many other mechanisms in living organisms so that such circuit elements may help us understand adaptive and spontaneous behavior, or even learning.
 
Memresistors, or memristors, have received the lion’s share of attention, starting with the 2010 announcement that Hewlett Packard and Hynix Semiconductor of Seoul, Korea would collaborate to commercialize memristor technology in the form of Resistive Random Access Memory or RRAM. (In fact, several other companies have beaten HP/Hynix to the market, with the first commercial memristor devices appearing in 2013.) However, in the longer term, it may be possible to construct memory circuits that work on capacitive and/or inductive principles.
 
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
 
The goal of this report is to survey emerging memristor and related technologies (e.g., memcapacitors and meminductors) and their applications, identify those that are most likely to achieve significant commercial sales in the next five years to 10 years (2013 to 2023), and develop quantitative estimates of potential sales.
 
The report’s specific objectives support this broad goal. These objectives include singling out the technologies and applications with the greatest commercial potential in the 2013 to 2023 time frame, identifying market drivers and evaluating obstacles to their successful commercialization, and projecting their future sales.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
 
This report is intended especially for executives, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists, and other readers with a need to know where the market for memristors and similar devices is headed over the next 5 years to 10 years. Although the report is organized around specific technologies, it is largely nontechnical in nature and coverage. That is, it is concerned less with theory and jargon than with what works, how much of the latter the market is likely to purchase, and at what price.
 
The report has not been written specifically for scientists and technologists. However, the report’s findings concerning the market for their work, including the availability of government and corporate research funding for different technologies and applications, should interest them as well.
 
SCOPE AND FORMAT
 
The proposed report will describe the basic technologies behind memresistors, memcapacitors and meminductors; their history and current state of development; theoretical advantages and disadvantages; challenges that must be overcome to commercialize them; possible time frames for their commercialization; and potential applications.
 
The report will focus on memristors, which are much closer to commercialization than the other two basic technologies; types of memristor (e.g. titanium dioxide, polymeric, ferroelectric, spin resistive), their strengths and weaknesses, and expected time to market; applications; and future sales.
 
The report will highlight the degree to which expected sales represent new markets vs. cannibalizing existing markets and the implications for suppliers’ business strategies. Cannibalization reportedly is a significant concern of developers like Hynix that have a presence in competing markets.
 
The study format includes the following major elements:
  • Executive summary.
  • Definitions.
  • Historical milestones.
  • Technologies and applications that have the greatest commercial potential through 2023.
  • Detailed market estimates and projections for each application and material during the period 2012 to 2017.
  • General assessment of expected market trends in the longer term (2017 to 2023).
  • Companies, academic and government laboratories that are developing commercial memristors, memcapacitors, and meminductors.
  • Patent analysis.
 
REPORT HIGHLIGHTS
 
The global market for circuit elements with memory by type of application is expected to grow from essentially zero in 2012 through 2013 to $100 million in 2018 and more than $675 million in 2023. This market is expected to show a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 46.5% through the forecast period of 2018 to 2013.
 
This report provides:
  • An overview of the global market for memresistors, memcapacitors, and meminductors.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data projections for 2014 through 2018 and 2023.
  • Descriptions of the basic technologies behind memresistors, memcapacitors and meminductors as well as their history, challenges that must be overcome to commercialize them, possible time frames for their commercialization; and potential applications.
  • A detailed patent analysis.
