Mobile industry plays a huge role in the need of DRAM, notably the requirement for high RAM capacity on flagship Android devices. Besides, the increased focus on the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in recent years also contributes to the increased requirement for more memory in data centers.
Hence, DRAM price to stay firm through year 2018 due to the rising demand. TrendForce has forecasted the increase of global DRAM supply by 19.6%. Regardless of the greater supply, the numbers are still well below the growth of demand, which could rise by 22%.
DRAM demand is relatively inelastic as per now. Given that suppliers will need a certain amount of DRAM to meet certain requirements in performance. As result, vendors may not be able to scale back significantly on DRAM purchases even if prices rise. Unlike NAND market, scaling back would mean the decrease in the effectuation of a certain system. For NAND, buyer would usually scale the purchase according to the price.
DRAM suppliers are now investing in transiting technology and optimization instead of expanding the capacity. Which is part of the effort to keep the 2018 prices similar to the second half of 2017. Transcend Information Inc’s tier-1 supplier, Samsung, is taking the same approach in price control alongside with Micron and SK Hynix.
