NAND flash market to stabilize by 4Q11

Posted: 30 Aug 2011 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:NAND flash? contract price? inventory level?

Global macroeconomic issues, poor NAND flash end application shipments and delayed inventory replenishment in 3Q11 peak season collectively resulted to an underperforming NAND flash chip market, said DRAMeXchange, a research arm of TrendForce Corp. However, OEM orders from some system product clients remained relatively stable in 1HAug. Consequently, contract price for MLC and TLC NAND flash chip ASP declined by one to two percent and four to seven percent, respectively.

As major countries have begun to work on improving economic growth, financial deficits, unemployment rates and other macro-economic issues, improving outlook regarding the global economy should help boost market confidence and year-end holiday purchasing in Q4. As downstream clients gradually decrease their inventory levels, and as certain clients launch new products, inventory replenishment demand is expected to warm up after August. NAND flash chip contract price will probably stabilize by that time as well. Since NAND flash-related vendors currently do not have a firm grasp on orders in 4Q11, upward momentum for NAND flash price will still depend on actual market demand conditions in Q4.
