Due to the epidemic situation, the global economic environment is not good and the demand for smartphones and computers is declining, but the storage market is still big business, and demand increased in April.
The point is that with all this, the price of DDR4 RAM is rising by 20% and as far as sources report, it will continue to rise.
This year’s pandemic has boosted demand for remote office and educational products, so sales of servers, laptops, tablets, and networking equipment continue to grow, and with all of this, the demand for memory has also increased. The 16GB laptop memory kits have started to become more popular and servers often have 128GB of memory or more, all of which have directly contributed to the prosperity of the storage market.
RAM prices are expected to remain high in the second quarter of the year. Currently, demand far exceeds manufacturers’ production rates, so we can expect high prices in the third quarter as well.
We may see a slight drop in prices in Q3, when perhaps most of the economy will hopefully return to normal, but it is clear that prices will not return to the previous price level this year, and will probably remain high.
