Press Release


  • Monitor Panel Oversupply in 2020 Means Potential for Price Trend to Mirror 2019 TV Panels, Says TrendForce
    01-15-2020 Anita Wang
    The latest analysis from the WitsView research division of TrendForce shows potential for a small price hike in TV panels under (and including) 65 inches at the end of January, as demand rises and supply falls. In contrast, due to an increase in panel manufacturers’ shipment target and the continued capacity expansion in China, the supply of monitor panels in 2020 is projected to exceed demand by nearly 20%. In the short term, the price drop of monitor panels is unlikely to stop. [ more ]
  • Year-end Release of New Game Consoles to Trigger 2H20 Demand Surge for Graphics DRAM and SSDs, Says TrendForce
    01-15-2020 TrendForce
    As PS4 and Xbox One approach the end of their lifecycles, Sony and Microsoft recently revealed more details about the release schedules of PS5 and Xbox Series X, which will hit the market during the 2020 holiday season. According to the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, the competition between next-gen video game consoles in 2H20 will incite a demand surge for Graphics DRAM and SSDs. [ more ]
  • DRAM Contract Prices to Rise in 1Q20 as Power Outage at Samsung Fab Spurs Demand, Says TrendForce
    01-08-2020 Avril Wu
    According to the latest analysis from the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, the consistent increase in DRAM spot prices since December and the power outage at Samsung’s Hwaseong fab on December 31, 2019 have not seriously impacted the supply side of the DRAM market. But on the demand side, memory buyers have furthered their willingness to build up inventories. Thus, TrendForce is again adjusting the 1Q20 DRAM contract price forecast from “mostly holding steady”, as previously reported, to “slightly trending upward”, indicating an earlier-than-anticipated kickoff of the cyclical upturn.

  • 2019 Gaming Monitor Shipment Reaches 57% Growth YoY, While Curved Monitors Take 60% Market Share, Says TrendForce
    01-02-2020 Anita Wang
    According to the latest research from the WitsView research division of TrendForce, the 2019 shipment of gaming monitors (defined by WitsView as monitors with frame rate over 100Hz) is estimated at up to 8.5 million units, a 57% growth YoY, compared to 2018 figures. With the diversification of panel types and monitor models from different brands, the growth momentum of this industry is expected to continue well into the next few years, with projected shipment of 11-12 million units in 2020.

  • Owing to Seasonal Headwinds and Constricted Supply, 1Q20 NAND Flash Price Is Projected to Continue Rising, Says TrendForce
    01-02-2020 TrendForce
    According to the latest analysis by the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, the contract price of client SSD has fallen for seven consecutive quarters until 2Q19 from peak price, to barely above the price of HDD. As a result of this price decrease, the share of SSD, along with their capacity, used in notebook computers has risen since 2Q19. On the supply side, the June 15 power outage at the Yokkaichi fab jointly operated by Kioxia and WDC forced the two companies to reduce their NAND production, in turn halting the price drop of eMMC/UFS and SSD products in 3Q19. On the other hand, there was a sharp uptick in the wafer market leading to a 20% increase in 3Q19 wafer prices. As well, the contract prices of eMMC/UFS and SSD made a strong recovery in 4Q19.

  • As Competitiveness of High-end TV with Mini LED Backlighting Rises, Panel Manufacturers Rush to Develop Active Matrix Technology, Says TrendForce
    12-30-2019 Julian Lee
    The increase in die bonding efficiency, the decrease in Mini LED chip cost, and the historical low of open cell prices all contributed to the significantly lowered costs of displays utilizing Mini LED backlighting. According to the New Display Technology Cost Analysis quarterly report from the WitsView research division of TrendForce, Mini LED backlighting has significantly lowered the cost of display modules used in 65-inch 4K TVs. These display modules are estimated to see approximately 5-10% cost reductions compared to 2018 costs. This is expected to accelerate the widespread adoption of Mini LED. [ more ]
  • As 8K Grows in Popularity, LED Ultra-Fine Pitch Display Market to Reach 58% CAGR in 2019-2023, Says TrendForce
    12-27-2019 TrendForce
    According to the latest report by the LEDinside research division of TrendForce, titled 2020 Global LED Video Wall Market Outlook – Meeting Room, Sales Channel and Price Trend, the demand for displays with high resolution and HDR capabilities has skyrocketed; thus, the LED fine pitch display (pixel pitch ≤ P2.5) market is expected to reach 27% CAGR in the 2019-2023 period. On the other hand, ultra-fine pitch displays have more momentum for growth because of their lower shipment numbers at the present. The ultra-fine pitch display (pixel pitch ≤ P1.1) market is therefore projected to reach 58% CAGR. [ more ]
  • As Supply Adjustments Struggle to Keep Up with Demand Growth, 1Q20 Graphics DRAM Price Sees Sharp Upturn, Says TrendForce
    12-26-2019 Avril Wu
    According to the newest analysis from the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, server DRAM prices are expected to lead the uptrend in 1Q20 DRAM prices because the supply has been constrained by unstable yield rates of 1Xnm processes. Also, Graphics DRAM prices will see a corresponding sharp rebound. Graphics DRAM is more sensitive to demand change than other types of memory products, so its price fluctuations can be dramatic as well. With OEM clients raising their stock-up demand, Graphics DRAM contract prices are projected to increase by over 5% QoQ, the highest among all memory products. [ more ]
