Flash 3DNAND flash manufacturers on the transfer of production capacity will be completed, the supply of 3DNAND will be significantly improved in the first quarter of 2018, the flash shortage will be eased, then the price of SSD will decline, but the follow-up will be how to develop or will be affected by the mobile phone market sales impact.
SSD prices fell to the bottom in 2015, but the good times did not last long, probably in 2016 prices began to rise, recently although prices tend to be stable but still maintained at a relatively high price, the price is the main cause of mobile phone market demand, flash memory manufacturers to shift production to the mobile equipment mobile phone the use of flash memory, used for SSD will decrease. However, the PC of SSD also has been growing, flash production plant itself is 3D flash flash slowly the transfer of production capacity, this process does not reduce the capacity as well as the resulting in the nearly two years of soaring SSD.
SSD prices will fall back in Q1 next year and prices will rise in short time.
But will this situation has Haozhuan, Digitimes received the industry news, flash 3DNAND flash manufacturers on the transfer of production capacity will be completed, the supply of 3DNAND will be significantly improved in the first quarter of 2018, the flash shortage will be eased, then the SSD price will decline, but the subsequent development would still happen the mobile phone market sales impact.
In addition they also referred to the DRAM on the market, because recently memory prices skyrocketing, DRAM vendors have expanded production capacity reasonably, they strive to demand and profit DRAM market to achieve a better balance, to stabilize the price of memory.
So now the price of SSD has been relatively stable, the price in the first quarter of next year should be reduced, and the memory price may increase, so it should turn to stability later. It is not clear when the price will fall back.
