DRAM market contraction (q-o-q)
- Q2022 3 -28.8%
- Q2022 4 -32.5%
- Q2023 1 -21.2%
🟦All major DRAM manufacturers are in the red
The three major DRAM makers, Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix, and Micron Technology, all fell into the red. The main reason is the sluggish prices caused by the long-term oversupply problem. However, the DRAM market continues with planned production cuts and we expect the rate of price decline to slow gradually. Revenue is expected to recover in Q3 2023 and beyond. However, the operating margin is expected to remain in the red.
