NAND flash prices rise for first time in the past four quarters

The surge in demand for SSDs and servers forced the average price of NAND flash memory up in July for the first time in the past 16 months, according to Nikkei Asia.

Taking TLC 256Gb as an example, its price increased by 3% from June to $3.35 per piece in July.

The report also pointed out that price increases may be short-term. The price increase of NAND flash memory is mainly due to the increase in demand for SSDs for PCs and servers for datacentres.

The report quoted Kioxia’s second-quarter financial report as saying that the balance of supply and demand in the NAND flash memory market has improved, and the price has risen by more than 10%, the first increase in the past four quarters. Kioxia believes that the overall NAND flash memory market will maintain high demand, and supply and demand are expected to remain stable in the second half of the year.
