Global DRAM chip vendors' market share 2011-2020

In the second quarter of 2020, Samsung held a market share of 43.5 percent, a slight fall from the 44.1 percent share that the company occupied in the first quarter of 2020.

COVID-19 impacts

Overall DRAM revenues amounted to 17.11 billion U.S. dollars for the second quarter of 2020, up from the 14.82 billion U.S. dollars observed in the first quarter of 2020. As the source suggests, the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak were considered by OEMs, with many keeping or upping their procurement of components due to supply chain disruption fears.


The primary memory of a computer is called RAM, with the two most used forms of modern RAM being static RAM (SRAM) and dynamic RAM (DRAM). DRAM is a type of volatile memory which, unlike non-volatile flash memory, loses data quickly when cut off from a power supply. Compared to other varieties of volatile memory, DRAM is relatively structurally simple. Whereas SRAM requires four to six transistors per bit, DRAM requires only one transistor and capacitor per bit. The global DRAM market generates over 15 billion U.S. dollars each quarter, with Samsung being the largest manufacturer of DRAM in terms of revenues.
