Keywords:Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd? NAND flash?

The supply of NAND flash products has started to tighten as demand continues to increase buoyed by the upcoming holiday season, according to Taiwan-based memory chipmakers. Even Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd was believed to have not enough stock for the spot market for the past week.

However, Samsung said that it will not lessen its supply to Taiwan-based clients and will try to keep up with the demand. Some Taiwan manufacturers said that the top NAND flash manufacturers are all increasing their capacities to meet the growing demand, particularly from the consumer electronics sector, before Christmas.

Leading companies reportedly prioritized its reserve supply for international vendors, leaving no surplus stock for the spot market. However, market observers noted that the expected decline in supply can stabilize prices for the segment, as quotes for NAND products have recently been dropping in the spot market.
