Sharp decline in SSD pricing expected in 2018

Posted on Wednesday, April 05 2017 @ 13:59:22 CEST by


As you may know, SSD prices have increased significantly over the past year or so due to a shortage of NAND flash memory. This situation is expected to persist throughout most (or even all) of 2017 but market research firm TrendForce says there's light at the end of the tunnel and predicts we can expect steep price cuts starting sometime in 2018:
As we wrote in our last blog, the increased demand for NAND (and higher pricing) will continue through 2017. If 3D NAND ramps in time to make system OEM quals for back-to-school notebook sales, we could potentially see some easing of prices. If they do not make this window, then it will be business as usual for SSD vendors for all of 2017 – higher prices, higher margins, and healthy financials. But don’t fret, we are all pretty sure the normal (crazy) pricing behavior will be return sometime in 2018 – and quarterly takedowns for SSDs will once again, ride a slippery, steep, downhill slope.
