DRAM and NAND flash component prices are set to rise by up to about 60 percent by the end of 2024, according to TrendForce.

The compound effect of quarter-on-quarter percentage increases in prices means that DRAMs on average could cost between 36 and 63 percent more than at the beginning of 2024, according to the analyst. In the case of NAND flash components could cost between 31 and 57 percent more than at the beginning of the year.

The rally in pricing comes after eight quarters of declines. The persistence of this rally will depend on suppliers’ effective control of manufacturing capacity utilization, the analyst said.

The first quarter of 2024 shows memories rising strongly with a hike of between 13 and 18 percent QoQ for DRAM contract prices and a hike of between 18 and 23 percent for NAND Flash contract prices.

The second quarter is expected to see prices creep up further while 3Q24 is the traditional peak season as buyers require products for equipment builds ahead of the holiday season.

In the DRAM market, the rising DDR5 and HBM penetration rates will further push up the overall ASP, thereby widening the QoQ increase in contract prices.
