DRAM chip manufacturers are rather prosperity in recent years.

    According to Digitimes, the total Q3 DRAM chip revenue of three major manufacturers, Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron, reaches $26.4 billion, which increase by 10% compared with last quarter.

    Plussing NAND flash memory, the total revenue is $37.3 billion, with a 8% rise compared with last quarter and a 36% increase compared with last year.

    It can be seemed that DRAM revenue accounts for 71%. 

    DigitimeResearch estimates seasonal factors and device clients have start inventory policy, which will weaken memory chips demand and prices in the fourth quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019.

    It means it is hopeless to bounce back for three major memory manufacturers in the second half of 2019.

    Combined with downturn trend of memory contract prices, the first half of next year seems to be a spectacular time for ordinary PC users purchasing memory and SSD. Why not seize this opportunity?

    At present, Samsung is the first DRAM company with a 45.5% market shares. SK Hynix is second with 29.1% market shares, and Microns Q3 shares are 21.1%.
