Samsung to exit microSD card market

DigiTimes heard Samsung informed its partners that it's looking to phase out from the microSD memory card market in order to focus its resources into the production of more profitable eMMC, eMCP and SSD storage devices.
Samsung reportedly will move to supply only wafers to a few customers, which will have to manufacture and assembly microSD cards themselves. Samsung stepped into making microSD cards when the small-size cards started to see growing adoption among consumer digital cameras. SD cards were once widely used for data storage in DSCs. Toshiba and SanDisk then followed in the footstep of Samsung to tap the field.

However, profits for making microSD cards have shrunk gradually, encouraging Samsung to place more emphasis on embedded memory solutions used in smartphones and tablets, according to industry sources. Manufacturing products such as eMMC, eMCP and SSD devices now yield higher profits, the sources indicated.
