The global spintronics market was valued at $362.7 million in 2019, and it is expected to witness a CAGR of 34.8% during the forecast period (2020–2030), reaching $12,854.6 million by 2030. The healthcare category in terms of end user is expected to grow fastest, owing to the advancement in spintronic-based magnetic sensors, which is expected to be leveraged for detecting tumor cells in human body.
The metal-based category held the largest share in the spintronics market in 2019. This is attributed to the high-speed data transfer and low energy consumption offered by metal-based spintronics including tunnel magneto resistance (TMR) and giant magneto resistance (GMR).
Advancement in STT-MRAM Is a Major Market Trend
The major trend that is witnessed in the spintronics market is the advancements in the field of spin-transfer torque magnetoresistive random-access memory (STT-MRAM). This technology is gaining traction in the market as it offers scalability in terms of memory density, which can be achieved at a lower cost as compared to toggle MRAM. Currently, Everspin Technologies Inc. is one of the major producers of STT-MRAM chips. A recent example of advancement includes the development of a 128 Mb density STT-MRAM by a research team at Tohoku University. The team claims it to be the fastest MRAM ever produced.
Automotive Industry Is a Major Consumer of Spintronics
Increasing sale of electric vehicles (EVs) is observed as a major factor responsible for the growth of the spintronics market. Spintronic sensors used in the vehicles play a major role in increasing the battery performance by monitoring the current flow and battery life. GMR and TMR are used in the place of Hall ICs and anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) sensors for position sensing. The Hall ICs and AMR sensors consume around 10mW of power under continuous usage, while GMR and TMR sensors consume power in the range of sub mW and μW, respectively, in EVs. NVE corporation and NXP Semiconductors Inc. are some of the major companies producing these sensors for EVs.
