  • 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 ]
  • 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.

  • Prices in DRAM Market Will Keep Rising Through 2017 as Annual Bit Supply Is Projected to Expand by Less Than 20%, Says TrendForce
    12-14-2016 / Avril Wu
    The global DRAM market has been on a roller coaster ride during 2016. Prices were on a steep slide in the year’s first half due to weak demand. However, the pickup in notebook shipments and the strong sales of Chinese branded smartphones since the start of the third quarter have not only reversed the price downtrend but also caused average selling prices of DRAM to make big jumps. Looking ahead to 2017, DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, forecasts that DRAM bit supply will expand by less than 20% annually. This growth rate will also be a new historical low for the industry. Assuming that there will be no significant weakening of demand, DRAM supply will generally remain tight next year. Thus, suppliers should continue to reap profits during the entire 2017 on account of rising prices. [ more ]
  • Average Contract Price of PC DRAM 4GB Modules Rose to US$18 in November, Says TrendForce
    12-07-2016 / Avril Wu
    Prices in the contract and spot markets for PC DRAM kept climbing between October and November, according to DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. The average contract price of PC DRAM 4GB modules increased by 2.86% monthly to arrive at US$18 in November, while the average spot prices of DDR3 and DDR4 4Gb chips respectively rose 6% and 2% monthly to reach US$2.6 and US$2.53. The general state of the PC DRAM market in November suggests that the upward price trend will continue in the future. [ more ]
  • TrendForce Expects Average Contract Price of PC DRAM to Go Up 15% Sequentially in First Quarter of 2017
    11-22-2016 / Avril Wu
    The latest research from DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, finds that the global DRAM market in the first quarter of 2017 will benefit from the stock-up activities ahead of the Chinese New Year holidays and the widespread expectations of tight supply. The average contract price of PC DRAM 4GB modules is estimated to rise by around 15% sequentially in next year’s first quarter to reach US$20. At the same time, the global DRAM market will see an across-the-board price hike that encompass DRAM for server, mobile and specialty applications. Despite off-season effect, the DRAM market will still be booming in the first quarter of 2017. [ more ]
  • Average Contract Price for DRAM Rose 7% Monthly in September and Will Hit Two-Year High in Fourth Quarter, Says TrendForce
    10-03-2016 / Avril Wu
    The global average contract price of PC DRAM rose 7.4% monthly in September to US$14.5 as DRAM makers adjusted their product mixes and caused PC DRAM supply to tighten significantly, says DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce. In the fourth quarter, the average contract price of PC DRAM will reach its highest point in two years due to stronger-than-expected notebook demand worldwide. The anticipated quarterly increase in the average contract price will be at almost 30%. [ more ]
  • DRAM Prices to Stabilize in 2017 as Suppliers Implement Plans to Control Supply, Says TrendForce
    06-16-2016 / Avril Wu
    The DRAM market is in the midst of a long-term slump and the average contract selling price has suffered 19 consecutive months of decline. DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, reports that the average selling price of DDR4 arrived at US$1.31 this May, while DDR3 came to just US$1.25. All suppliers are now under enormous cost pressure. [ more ]
