PDF

Due to uncertainties concerning global economic recovery, many NAND Flash suppliers are conservative towards the 1H12 market. Therefore, to strengthen cost competitiveness, 1H12 bit growth will mainly be focused on process technology migration in order to help reduce oversupply and ease the impact of price decreases on profitability. Beginning in 2H12, 300mm wafer capacity will be added according to market demand. Mainstream process technology will advance from the 2xnm class in 2H11 to the 2ynm class in 2H12. TrendForce forecasts global NAND Flash bit supply volume will grow by 70.6% YoY, from 9,181 M 16Gb equiv. in 2011 to 15,663 M 16Gb equiv...

PDF

Negatively impacted by the uncertainty of global economic recovery, many suppliers are relatively conservative towards the 1H12 market. Thus, 1H12 bit output growth will depend mainly on process technology migration in order to strengthen cost competitiveness. New 300mm wafer capacity will be not added until 2H12, depending on the status of the market at the time, in order to close the gap between NAND flash supply and demand and reduce the impact of price decline on profitability...
