Worldwide semiconductor revenue is projected to increase of 7.5 percent from USD 419 billion in 2017 to USD 451 billion in 2018, according to Gartner. This represents a near doubling of Gartner's previous estimate of 4 percent growth for 2018. Researchers increased the outlook for 2018 by USD 23.6 billion compared with the previous forecast, of which the memory market accounts for USD 19.5 billion. Price increases for both DRAM and NAND flash memory are raising the outlook for the overall semiconductor market.
