Samsung and SK Hynix lead the DRAM market with 67% share

Posted on Tuesday, February 19 2013 @ 14:55:23 CET by

DRAMeXchange reports Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix had a combined DRAM marketshare of 67 percent in Q4 2012. Samsung accounted for 42 percent, while Hynix took the second spot with 25 percent.
Samsung accounted for 42%, or US$2.89 billion, of the global DRAM market in the fourth quarter, while Hynix' share stood at 25%, said DRAMeXchange. The size of the worldwide DRAM market came to US$6.87 billion in the fourth quarter, up from US$6.43 billion in the third, DRAMeXchange disclosed.

Elpida Memory and Micron Technology took a combined 24.6% share of the global DRAM market in the fourth quarter, DRAMeXchange indicated. As Micron will complete its merger with Elpida later in 2013, the US firm will be able to compete head-to-head with Hynix, DRAMeXchange believes.

A pick-up in demand for DRAM chips from PC makers previously pushed spot prices of 2Gb DDR3 to almost US$1.40. Prices already went up nearly 30% during the fourth quarter of 2012, resulting in an almost 7% rise in output value for the global DRAM industry, DRAMeXchange said.
