In 2011, the market for mobile DRAM is expected to increase by 71% according to IHS. It’s projected that we will see 2.9 billion gigabits shipped in 2011; quite a bit more than last years sales of 1.7 billion Gb. By 2015 it’s expected that shipments will increase to 20.5 billion Gb. The reason for all this growth: smartphones and tablets. Maybe that’s why Apple bought all that flash memory a few years ago.
