  • Technology Brands Including Facebook Dive Deep Into the Potential of Micro-LED Displays for AR and VR Devices, Reports TrendForce
    04-26-2017 TrendForce
    Following Sony’s introduction of CLEDIS (Crystal LED Integrated Structure) displays and Apple’s acquisition of LuxVue, more technology companies are exploring the possibilities of micro-LED in various display applications. LEDinside, a division of TrendForce, reports that there are now nearly 100 private companies and research organizations participating in the development of micro-LED displays. Besides Apple and Sony, there are other major technology brands that invest in micro-LED. Notable cases include the acquisition of InfiniLED by Facebook’s Oculus and the partnership agreement between Ostendo Technologies and KDX. By entering this field in advance, these companies hope to gain favorable positions in the future. [ more ]
  • TrendForce Says Overall DRAM Market to See Upward Price Trajectory Through 2017 Despite Recent Dip in Spot Price of DDR4 Chips
    04-26-2017 Avril Wu
    DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, reports that the average spot price of PC DRAM DDR4 chips has fallen by about 1.92% since April 20. Latest analysis indicates that PC DRAM’s chip prices generally have been higher in the contract market than in the spot market. The recent drop in the average spot price of PC DRAM DDR4 chips is thus a correction to limit the price gap between the two markets. Nonetheless, DRAMeXchange maintains the view that DRAM prices will generally stay on an uptrend during the entire 2017. This is mainly attributed to tight supply resulting from the lack of major fab expansion plans and yield issues with leading-edge processes. [ more ]
  • 3D-NAND to Account for Over 50% of Total NAND Flash Bit Output This Third Quarter and Become Market Mainstream, Says TrendForce
    04-25-2017 TrendForce
    DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, anticipates that 3D-NAND will formally become the mainstream architecture of NAND Flash memory in the third quarter of 2017 with its share in the total NAND Flash bit output exceeding 50%. Following the footsteps of the leading 3D-NAND producers Samsung and Micron, most NAND Flash suppliers will begin mass production of 64-layer 3D-NAND chips in the second half of 2017. Nonetheless, the overall NAND Flash supply is expected to remain tight through the year due to Apple stocking up components for the next iPhone release and steady demand growth from SSD vendors.

  • 4K Penetration Surpassed 30% for First Time in 1Q17 LCD TV Panel Shipments, Says TrendForce
    04-24-2017 Iris Hu
    WitsView, a division of TrendForce, reports LCD TV panel shipments for this first quarter totaled 60.16 million units, representing a drop of 10.7% compared with the prior quarter but also a year-on-year increase of 0.4%. Looking at major trends in the TV panel market, the growing demand for 4K resolution is accompanying the steady increase in the average panel size. Despite seasonal headwinds, first-quarter shipments of UHD (4K resolution) TV panels went up 0.5% sequentially to reach 20 million units for the first time ever and accounted for 33.3% of the total TV panel shipments.

  • IR Sensor Modules for Mobile Devices to Reach US$145 Million in Scale This Year as Smartphones Adopt 3D Sensing for Facial Recognition Applications, Says TrendForce
    04-20-2017 Jason Tsai
    Among the possible new technologies to be incorporated in this year’s refresh of the iPhone series, 3D sensing has generated a lot of interests in terms of applications. A 3D sensing solution requires an RGB camera module an infrared (IR) sensor module that uses VCSEL (vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser) as a light source. With more high-end smartphones adopt 3D sensing, TrendForce estimates that the worldwide market scale of IR sensor modules for mobile devices will reach US$145 million in 2017. [ more ]
  • TrendForce Anticipates Global Server DRAM ASP in 2Q17 to Rise Over 10% From Prior Quarter as Demands Exceeds Supply
    04-18-2017 Mark Liu
    DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, reports that demand continues to outpace supply in the server DRAM market. In this first quarter, memory suppliers saw their shipment fulfillment rates dropped for different groups of clients. The fulfillment rate for long-term agreement (LTA) orders was 80% on average, while fulfillment rates for orders from Chinese and Taiwanese ODMs fell to the 60% level. Due to the persistent undersupply, DRAMeXchange further projects that the global average sales price (ASP) of server DRAM will increase by more than 10% between the first and second quarter. [ more ]
  • Global Market for Breast Cancer Drugs to Grow at a CAGR of 9.3% in the 2016~2013 Period as New Drugs Enter the Market, Says TrendForce
    04-17-2017 Sean Liu
    The global market for breast cancer drugs is growing steadily due to rising patient population, introduction of new drugs and sales growth of Perjeta and Kadcyla. The latest biotechnology market report from TrendForce states that the global market scale of breast cancer drugs reached US$11.97 billion in 2016 and is forecast to expand at a CAGR of 9.3% to US$22.35 billion in 2023.

  • TrendForce Estimates Average Contract Price of 4GB DDR4 DRAM Modules to Climb 12.5% Entering 2Q17 as Difficulties Mount for Under 20nm Production
    04-13-2017 Avril Wu
    DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, reports the general price increase in the PC DRAM market is growing larger than anticipated as the already tight supply situation is compounded by quality problems with products made on the leading-edge processes. Based on a preliminary survey of completed contracts for the second quarter, DRAMeXchange estimates that the average contract price of 4GB DDR4 modules will go up by about 12.5% compared with the first quarter, from US$24 to around US$27.
