TrendForce: DRAM prices are expected to drop in Q4

DRAM components

DRAM prices in the fourth quarter are expected to drop by 13% to 18% due to a weakening of demand for consumer products and further pressure on inventory, reports TrendForce.

TrendForce pointed out that in 3Q22, memory bit consumption and shipments continued to exhibit quarterly decline. Due to a significant decline in memory demand, terminal buyers also delayed purchases, leading to further escalation of supplier inventory pressure. At the same time, the strategies of various DRAM suppliers to increase their market share remain unchanged..

Key points include:

  • PC DRAM, due to weak demand for notebooks, PC OEMs will remain focused on destocking DRAM inventory.
  • Server DRAM, server terminals have reduced server DRAM bit purchases due to a delay in their new platform and shipments of whole servers is expected to decline in 4Q22.
  • Mobile DRAM, smartphone brands continue to adjust their mobile DRAM inventory. Inventory levels are expected to be maintained at 7-9 weeks by the end of 3Q22 and variables remain in the seller’s market.
  • Graphics DRAM, TrendForce expects another round of price cuts for graphics cards.
