Memory Market Momentum Remains Unimproved, Spot Prices Continue to Decline

2023-07-12 Semiconductors editor

TrendForce has released the latest spot prices of memory, which have continued to decline due to the impact of the stagnant market conditions. Both DRAM and NAND Flash spot prices have dropped further. The details are as follows:

DRAM Spot Market:

Compared with last week, the spot market is still not showing a noticeable improvement in terms of trading activities. Sellers are under a certain amount of pressure because some module houses have already stocked up in advance, and the demand from channels remains fairly weak. Hence, spot prices of DDR4 and DDR5 products continue to register daily drops. The average spot price of the mainstream chips (i.e., DDR4 1Gx8 2666MT/s) fell by 0.27% from US$1.501 last week to US$1.497 this week.

NAND Flash Spot Market:

There has been no apparent WoW improvement to the dynamics of the NAND Flash spot market this week. Several module houses, having elevated their inventory in advance, are now experiencing a certain extent of sales pressure from a lack of betterment in demand among channel markets, which led to an on-going drop of NAND Flash prices. 512Gb TLC wafer spots have dropped by 0.28% this week, arriving at US$1.404.
