Chip prices for NAND flash memory are dropping due to reduced demand by major buyers such as Apple
Online PR News – 09-June-2011 – – The month of May saw a decline in NAND flash prices of more than 15 percent due to reduced demand by major buyers. Apple is the largest buyer of NAND flash, which uses the chips for devices such as the iPad and iPhone. Market inventory levels have also remained high for several months, due to excessive purchasing following the Japan earthquake earlier this year.
“Large scale NAND flash buyers often dictate supply and demand of the chipsets,” said USB drives specialist Dan Rodriguez. “There is now an excessive supply of NAND flash in the market, which has a ripple effect on other industries such as custom USB drives. This summer is an excellent time for marketing and promotions companies to buy promotional usb drives.”
Because smaller laptops and tablets omit optical drives, USB drives are becoming a primary way to transmit and store information. This makes them excellent marketing tools as they can be printed with company logos, designed in custom 3D shapes, and come preloaded with applications and files.
