TrendForce - Market report, price trend and B2B platform of DRAM, NAND Flash, LEDs, TFT-LCD and green energy, PVhttp://www.trendforce.comenWith Inventories Yet to Fully Clear, DRAM ASP Poised to Continue Descent into the Second Half-Year, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3224.htmlDRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, points out that the drop in DRAM contract prices continues to grow in the first quarter due to the overabundance in inventory levels, falling by over 20% in overall ASP. The accelerating drop in prices did not stimulate a recovery in demand, and transactions have still been few. DRAM ASP is predicted to continue falling well into the third quarter as inventories clearouts have yet to be completed.DRAMMon, 25 Mar 2019 05:12:00 +00003224 at http://www.trendforce.comDrops in 2Q NAND Flash Contract Prices Shrink Slightly Thanks to Demand Recovery and Production Capacity Adjustments, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3223.htmlDRAMeXchange , a division of TrendForce , points out that 1Q19 contract prices across all NAND Flash product categories were impacted by a weak server demand, an extended smartphone replacement cycle, less-than-expected sales for Apple's new phones and other end demand disappointments. Combined with the quarter fall, this quarter presents a drop of 20%, the most dramatic drop since NAND Flash supply surpassed demand back in early 2018.SemiconductorsWed, 20 Mar 2019 05:26:00 +00003223 at http://www.trendforce.comFirst Quarter DRAM Contract Prices See a Rare, Large Down-Correction, Resulting in the Sharpest Decline Since 2011, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3217.htmlThe latest analysis of the PC DRAM market from DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, finds that most contracts are now monthly deals rather than quarterly deals, with February even seeing a most unusual, large down-correction in prices. The current quarterly decline dropped from the originally projected 25% to nearly 30%, resulting in the sharpest decline in a single season since 2011.DRAMTue, 05 Mar 2019 01:55:00 +00003217 at http://www.trendforce.comDRAM Revenue Took a Turn for the Worse in 4Q18; Suppliers Declining in Profitability, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3214.htmlInvestigations by DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, show that DRAM quotes have taken a turn for the worse in 4Q18, causing the total revenue in the DRAM industry to fall. Due to high inventory levels on the demand end, purchases have become few and little, in turn causing a sales bit decline QoQ for most DRAM vendors. Under this double decline of both quantity and price, the global DRAM revenue fell by 18.3% QoQ in 4Q18.DRAMMon, 25 Feb 2019 06:06:00 +00003214 at http://www.trendforce.comContract Prices of DRAM Products Projected to Drop by 15% QoQ in 2Q19 Due to High Inventory and Weak Demand, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3211.htmlThe latest analysis from DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, forecasts that the ongoing oversupply will result in significant price declines for DRAM products during 1H19. Demand remains weak in 1Q19 due to the off-season and the high inventory level that was carried over from the previous quarter. Contract prices of DRAM products across all major application markets already registered declines of more than 15% MoM in January, and they will continue their descent in February and March. Regarding contract price trends in 1Q19, the PC DRAM market is forecasted to see a decline of more than 20% QoQ, while the server DRAM market may witness an even larger drop of nearly 30% QoQ.Consumer ElectronicsTue, 19 Feb 2019 05:12:00 +00003211 at http://www.trendforce.comServer DRAM Contract Prices to Fall by Over 20% QoQ in 1Q19 Due to Difficulties in Reducing Inventory, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3204.htmlContract prices of server DRAM are expected to fall by more than 20% QoQ in 1Q19, steeper than the previous forecast of 15%, reports DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. The demand outlook remains weak due to high inventory levels and seasonal headwinds. Moreover, uncertainties brought by the China-U.S. trade war would also lead to conservative demand.SemiconductorsMon, 21 Jan 2019 06:00:00 +00003204 at http://www.trendforce.comA Sharper Price Decline of Nearly 20% Is Expected for 1Q19 in DRAM Market, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3201.htmlThe overall price trend in the DRAM market has been stable in December, showing no noticeable change from November, reports DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. Clients in North America and Europe were taking a break during the year-end holiday season, so the quantities of DRAM products traded in December were too small to be considered in the survey of contract prices. With regard to contract prices of mainstream products, the monthly average of 8GB modules is staying roughly at US$60, while that of 4GB modules is around US$30. However, for both 8GB and 4GB ones, their monthly lows have already dropped below their respective US$60 and US$30 thresholds.SemiconductorsTue, 15 Jan 2019 05:58:00 +00003201 at http://www.trendforce.comNAND Flash Manufacturers to Cut Capex by 2% YoY in 2019 Due to Worsening Oversupplyhttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3199.htmlExperiencing an oversupply over the entire year of 2018, the global NAND Flash market continues to face excess capacity this year as the demand outlook for notebooks, smartphones, servers and other end products remains weak, reports DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. NAND Flash manufacturers have slowed down the capacity expansion by cutting capex in 2019, aiming to moderate the oversupply by limiting the bit output growth.SemiconductorsThu, 10 Jan 2019 06:07:00 +00003199 at http://www.trendforce.comDRAM Market to See Lower Capital Expenditure and Moderated Bit Output in 2019 Due to Weak Demand, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3195.htmlAfter contract prices of DRAM products turned downward sharply in 4Q18 by 10% QoQ, major DRAM manufacturers have tried to offset fall in prices by slowing down capacity expansion in 2019, as the demand outlook for PCs, servers, smartphones, and other end consumer products remains weak, reports DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce.DRAMWed, 02 Jan 2019 04:01:00 +00003195 at http://www.trendforce.comGlobal Server Shipments to Grow by 5% YoY in 2018, but Growth May Slow Down in 1H19, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3193.htmlAccording to the latest report by DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, the global server market has continued to grow in 2018, with the total shipments estimated to reach 12.42 million units, a YoY growth of around 5%.
