NAND Flash Memory Encounters Surprise Shortage in Q1Rising demand for the memory in smartphones and tablets is the key factor—along with ChinaJuly 30, 2013
A surge in demand for low-end smartphones in China caught memory suppliers by surprise and pushed the NAND flash market to growth—and shortages—during the first quarter this year. Shipments of NAND flash memory from January to March amounted to 8.7 billion units in 1-gigabyte-equivalent pieces. The latest total is up from 8.2 billion units in the fourth quarter last year and also represents the highest figure of the last five quarters, but a run in supply ensued nonetheless.
Disruption in Korean Production Could Have Catastrophic Impact on Global Electronics BusinessApril 30, 2013What would happen if half of all global production for dynamic random access memory (DRAM), two-thirds of NAND flash manufacturing and 70 percent of the world’s tablet display supply...
Global Memory Market to Suffer if North Korea Attacked the SouthSmartphones and PCs would be severely impacted; entire electronics chain would convulseApril 30, 2013
A worst-case scenario in which North Korea attacks its neighbor to the south and engulfs the region in war would inflict devastating damage to the global electronics supply chain, ravaging top memory producers Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix while crippling devices like smartphones and PCs. Fully 66 percent of industry revenue for the dynamic random access memory (DRAM) market, as well as 48 percent of total NAND flash revenue, belonged in 2012 to just the two South Korean memory titans.
NAND Flash Market Posts Glowing Q3 ResultsOperating profits for all players move into positive groundDecember 10, 2012
The NAND flash market staged a successful turnaround in the third quarter, as improved demand and significant production cuts brought the industry’s supply and demand balance into better alignment, according to an IHS Flash Memory market brief from information and analytics provider IHS.
NAND revenue rose to $4.5 billion, up 5 percent from $4.3 billion in the second quarter, with industrywide operating profits nearly doubling from $159.2 million to $350.9 million. The strong results marked a satisfying reversal of the sharp downturn suffered in the earlier quarter, when revenue had tumbled from $5.0 billion at the beginning of the year in the January to March period. Results from the most recent quarter also showed industry operating profit margin rising to 7.6 percent, up from 3.6 percent.
Hard Drive Shipments Rebound to Record Level in 2012September 27, 2012A year after the Thailand flooding disaster partially derailed production, the global hard disk drive (HDD) industry has fully recovered, with shipments to the computer market expected to hit a record level this year, driven by the enterprise market as well as the arrival of the Windows 8 operating system.
HDD shipments in 2012 for the overall computer market, including PCs, are forecast to reach 524.0 million units, up 4.3 percent from 502.5 million units last year, according to an IHS iSuppli Storage Space Market Brief from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
