Spot prices for memory chips rose for the first time this year, giving rise to dire warnings about "unprecedented" hikes in prices for memory chips and even about possible supply disruptions. Cause — prolonged dispute between South Korea and Japan.
in Just a week prices in the DRAM sector, which already suffers from overproduction and weak demand, increased by 15% after Japan tightened its export rules, some of the material for chip production to South Korea, where there are two world's largest producer of memory chips — Samsung and SK Hynix.
Repeat that we are talking about prices in the spot market, which accounts for less than 10% of all sales. Large customers are buying memory at the medium - and long-term contracts. However, if said restrictions on exports continue, rising prices can cover the entire market.
"memory Prices will skyrocket like never before, because 75% of DRAM and 45% of the world production volume of NAND are under threat," so assess the situation, analysts Bernstein.
the Representatives of Samsung and SK Hynix declined to comment on reports of rising prices.
remember, Japan has restricted the export of three of the materials necessary for the manufacture of microelectronics products, including photoresists and hydrogen fluoride used as an etching gas in the manufacture of chips.
the Magnitude of the possible consequences allows to represent such numbers: South Korea buys 92% of photoresists and about 44% hydrogen fluoride in Japan. Now South Korea is committed to making the supply chain more independent, and has already received relevant proposals from Russia and China.
