2023-05-31 Semiconductors editor

According to the latest weekly memory spot prices published by TrendForce, the spot prices of DDR5 chips have returned to a downward trend, resulting in no signs of recovery in overall spot prices. For more details, please refer to the information below:

DRAM Spot Market:
Spot prices of DDR5 chips have swung down again, and spot prices of DDR4 and DDR3 products continue to register incremental declines on a daily basis. The spot market on the whole has yet to show signs of a price rebound. Lately, some buyers have been seeking quotes for small-quantity orders, but this kind of demand does not generate a sufficient momentum to expand the overall transaction volume. Presently, most traders generally believe that spot prices are almost at the bottom, but they remain passive in stocking up because the demand outlook is quite negative. The average spot price of the mainstream chips (i.e., DDR4 1Gx8 2666MT/s) fell by 0.97% from US$1.543 last week to US$1.528 this week.

NAND Flash Spot Market:
It is now a consensus within the market that prices are no longer able to drop further amidst the manifestation of efficacy from the diminished provision among suppliers. Spot prices are now starting to stabilize on the whole despite transactions having yet to magnify accordingly. 512Gb TLC wafer has dropped by 0.49% this week, arriving at US$1.420.
