NAND Flash Price Remains Flat due to Quarter-End Effect and Slow Season.

18 June 2009 Semiconductors

Taipei,June 18th,2009----NAND Flash market has remained stable since the beginning of June. As for demand side, the market has not fully recovered and end-product sales are perceived weak.Says DRAMeXChange.
The launch of new generation iPhone is expected to have some positive impacts on the market and other cell phone vendors also introduced series of high-end smartphone at the same time. That is, the demand from cell phone system customers has been highlighted. However, demand from other main application such as memory card and UFD still remain weak due to the floppy end-user demand and quarter-end effect along with the inventory adjustment. Therefore, thdownstream clients are more conservative toward the purchase and would rather postpone the spending.
NAND Flash price has reached the chip cost level and vendors look forward to seeing their favorable price in the future so that they can show the profitability figures. On the other hand, customers are reluctant to see the weaker demand trigger by increasing cost and unaffordable product price especially for the future star product -SSD. We believe the short-term NAND Flash contract price will remain flat under the dynamic environment such as quarter-end effect, traditional slow season and new products launch, according to DRAMeXchange.
