Sources close to Samsung Electronics informed Bloomberg that the South Korean electronics company plans to lower memory chip growth output in 2019. The plan is the result of an expected slowdown in demand.

Earlier this year, Samsung anticipated bit growth of 20 percent for DRAM and 40 percent for NAND in 2018.

For the coming year, Samsung expects bit growth of under 20 percent for DRAM and 30 percent bit growth for NAND flash. The move is expected to help to keep memory prices stable or even to push prices up.

Bit growth respresents the annual DRAM bit volume growth.
