Cloud computing services have completely changed how companies handle, store, and use data. As infrastructure moves more and more toward the cloud, servers and data centers are becoming increasingly essential to managing the large amounts of data that users create as they access apps, store files, and perform activities on the cloud. Big data analytics also includes handling and examining huge datasets to find insightful patterns and information that can guide corporate choices and spur innovation. Because this RAM provides the high-speed memory needed to quickly access and manipulate massive datasets, it is essential to developing real-time data processing and analytics applications. Therefore, these factors will assist in the expansion of the market. Additionally, The infotainment systems found in modern cars are very advanced and provide many capabilities, including internet access, smartphone integration, multimedia playing, and navigation. Additionally, connected vehicles rely on in-vehicle networking technologies, such as Controller Area Network (CAN), Ethernet, and FlexRay, to facilitate communication between various vehicle systems and components, including sensors, ECUs (electronic control units), and infotainment systems. Therefore, these aspects will pose lucrative growth prospects for the market.

However, establishing a DRAM fabrication facility (fab) requires a massive initial investment, often running into billions of dollars. Moreover, manufacturing benefits significantly from economies of scale, wherein larger production volumes help spread fixed costs over a greater number of units, leading to lower per-unit costs. Hence, owing to these factors, there will be reduced demand in the upcoming years.
