DRAM modules, reliant on PCs, have stalled in their growth as PC sales have slowed to a crawl. The amount of DRAM modules shipped in 2012 has been handicapped by the lack of movement in the PC market, but strong DRAM ASPs in the early part of 2012 have helped to improve revenues for DRAM module makers. The remainder of 2012 and early 2013 is not looking to bring any respite as the global economic outlook continues to be gloomy. This report will focus on how the current state of the PC market is affecting the DRAM module market, and how the upcoming release of Windows 8 will factor in and where the DRAM module market goes moving forward.
