3 things that could have killed flash SSDs
The emerging size of the flash SSD market as you see it today was by no means inevitable. It owes a lot to 3 competing storage media competitors which failed to evolve fast enough in the Darwinian jungle of the storage market in the past decade.

One of these 3 contenders is definitely on the road to extinction - but could one of the other 2 still emerge to threaten flash SSDs?

The article - SSD's past phantom demons explores the latent market threats which hovered around the flash SSD market in the past decade. They seemed real and solid enough at the time.

2017 could be a billion dollar market for non-flash nvm
Editor:- February 18, 2013 - Yole Developments recently published a new market report - Emerging Non-Volatile Memories (5,990 euros) which describes why and how emerging alternative NVM (FRAM, MRAM/STTMRAM, PCM, RRAM) could grow from $209 million revenue in 2012 to $2 billion in 2018.

Among other things - the report says 3D RRAM could start to be used in SSDs in 2017-2018, when 3D NAND's scalability prospects are anticipated to worsen.
