  • Global DRAM Industry Analysis and Outlook-4Q11
    Membership: History Report
    The global DRAM industry’s total revenue for 3Q was approximately US$6.566 billion. Due to weak economies worldwide and a severe oversupply situation, DDR3 4GB average contract price fell from US$31 to US$19.5, a decrease of nearly 37%. DRAM makers’ total revenue decreased significantly, by 19.4% QoQ. Besides Samsung Semiconductors, all other DRAM manufacturers reported losses for 3Q. Additionally, DRAM makers actively transitioned to the 30nm-node process and the production of DDR3 4Gb chips. The sufficiency ratio for 1H12 will still be over 15%, which will stimulate capacity cuts or even mergers in the DRAM industry...

  • DRAM supply chain were affected; manufacturers with abundant raw materials will
    Membership: History Report
    The magnitude 9.0 quake hit northeastern Japan on March 11th has left thousands of people homeless and damaged DRAM supply chain. The suspended Shin-Etsu and SUMCO northeastern plants have reduced global Raw-Wafer capacity by 20 to 25%. Hitachi Chemical and Mitsubishi Gas Chemical, two companies producing over 80% of BT resin used in module houses, were also affected by the quake. Other key raw materials such as photo-resistor, target and Nitrogen were also affected. Following the quake, DRAM vendors checked the inventory level on raw materials, confirmed on the possibility of second supply source in order to reduce loss...
