Memory prices to rise again in 2H 2007

Posted on Saturday, April 28 2007 @ 23:20:57 CEST by

DRAMeXchange predicts prices of DRAM will start rising again in the second half of this year:
Against the background of currently extreme low DRAM, pricing levels, chip makers are already at the verge of losing money, DRAMeXchange observes. Removal of excess inventory drove prices down recently both in spot markets as well as in contract markets to new lows, with DDR2 512Mb 667MHz as the current market reference being sold for around $2.57 in spot markets. By midyear, the bottom will be hit and prices will rise again, driven by PC sales which traditionally are stronger in the second half of the year, DRAMeXchange predicts.

This decline was much bigger than the market watchers originally expected. Besides seasonal reasons, the drop was caused by what the analysts calls a huge imbalance in the demand and supply chain: As their production capacities continue to increase, DRAM vendors have been forced to sell their chips at extremely low prices, with their capacities continue to increase.
