Memory Market Momentum Remains Unimproved, Spot Prices Continue to Decline

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.


Spot Prices of DDR5 Decline, No Recovery Seen in Memory Spot Prices

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.


DDR5 Spot Prices Rise, Other Memory Products Continue to Decline

According to the weekly memory spot price trends released by TrendForce, apart from a slight increase in the price of DDR5 chips due to shortages, the spot prices of other memory products continue to decline. The detailed situation is as follows:

DRAM Spot Market

Spot prices of DDR5 chips have risen slightly due to the frequent occurrence of quality-related issues and their impact on the overall supply of DDR5 products. As for the rest of DRAM products, their spot prices have returned to the trend of incremental daily decline. The overall transaction volume has yet to pick up. Some traders appear to be more willing to stock up, but there are no signs of a price rebound because the demand outlook is uncertain and supply is plentiful. The average spot price of mainstream chips (i.e., DDR4 1Gx8 2666MT/s) fell by 1.62% from US$1.603 last week to US$1.577 this week.

NAND Flash Spot Market

Purchase sentiment for spots is rather torpid this week, where the overall sufficient volume in the market is not received with buyer inquiries and aggressive transactions, which explains how prices are maintained on a slow reduction on the whole, and wafer prices are slowly falling to the level of contract prices. 512Gb TLC wafer has dropped by 0.07% in spot prices this week, arriving at US$1.430.
