The demand from notebooks, tablets, and smartphones (mainly Chinese branded smartphones) is estimated to drop by more than 15% compared with 4Q17, and that from server will remain generally the same. Therefore, the overall bit demand is projected to drop by 0-5% compared with 4Q17. On the other hand, as suppliers keep improving their production capacity and yield rate of 3D-NAND Flash, the bit output will grow by more than 5% compared with 4Q17. Consequently, NAND Flash market will experience an oversupply in 1Q18 and contract prices of SSD, NAND Flash chips and wafer, etc. will drop.DRAMMon, 11 Dec 2017 14:08:00 +08003034 at http://www.trendforce.comExcerpts from TrendForce's Forum on Key Trends in Electronic Components Industryhttp://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3033.htmlThe global research company TrendForce held 2018 Forum on Key Trends in Electronic Components Industry on December 7, 2017.
