Memory Spot Price Update: Stagnant Demand, 512Gb TLC Wafer Sees Increase

2023-07-26 Semiconductors editor

DRAM Spot Market:

Unlike the contract market, the spot market still shows daily drops mainly due to the influx of used chips that were stripped from decommissioned server DRAM modules. Since the demand situation has yet to turn around, spot prices on the whole continue to slide. There are no indications of a rebound in the near future. Regarding the mainstream chips (i.e., DDR4 1Gx8 2666MT/s), their average spot price fell by 0.67% from US$1.492 last week to US$1.482 this week.

NAND Flash Spot Market:

The NAND Flash spot market has yet to recover from its sluggishness since the end of June, and suppliers are still lingering under heavy sales pressure with no aggressive purchases due to the absence of peak season demand from Europe and America that was previously anticipated. These aforementioned stocking dynamics have led to an increase of 0.14% in 512Gb TLC wafer spots this week, arriving at US$1.404.
