SK Hynix and others see big profit upswing thanks to shortages

Posted on Friday, April 04 2014 @ 12:48:58 CEST by

EE Times reports memory makers saw a big increase in revenue last year due to shortages of DRAM:
For example, a Sept. 4 fire that forced the temporary closure of a SK Hynix factory in Wuxi, China, helped drive 2GB DDR3 DRAM chip prices up 42% by the end of September. For the full year, SK Hynix -- the world's second-largest memory manufacturer -- reported a 40.8% revenue increase that put it among top five semiconductor makers in revenue for the first time. By contrast, Intel's revenue dropped 1% due to weak PC sales, though it remains the market leader, and its revenue and marketshare are still almost half again that of No. 2 Samsung.
