But the company iSuppli analysts did not share the optimism and believe that until the present recovery in demand and profitability is far.
Revenues suppliers NAND and DRAM chips in the first quarter of 2009 fell to 14, 3% from the previous period. But more to the end of this year, analysts predict the growth for these segments. In the second quarter of total revenue in the DRAM and NAND industry will increase by 3, 6%, while the third and fourth quarter growth will be 21, 9 and 17, 5 per cent respectively, said iSuppli.
Principal Market Analyst, memory chips and storage We Yun Kim (Nam Hyung Kim) believes that this growth will cause for optimism among industry players, but it will thicken overproduction. For example, the supply Gigabit DRAM-chips will exceed demand by an average of 14% during the first three quarters of 2009. This does not allow prices to rise sharply and, consequently, will not help to increase the profitability of the business.
To understand the problem, we cite an example. Even if all Taiwanese suppliers DRAM-memory suddenly stop all its factory, which is approximately a quarter of the global market, the industry will be in a position of oversupply. According to Kim, it shows that the problem is much worse than people think industry players.
With regard to market NAND, the situation with the prices were better than analysts had expected iSuppli. Nevertheless, the company believes that a real recovery until the industry is still far. Most manufacturers of flash memory continues to lose money. The only company that wins in this situation, a South Korean giant Samsung Electronics. The remaining suppliers suffer considerable losses.
