Digitimes Research: South Korea 2Q14 memory production value hits record
Betty Shyu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Tuesday 12 August 2014]

Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix posted total production value of KRW10.73 trillion (US$10.41 billion) for DRAM and NAND flash in the second quarter of 2014, the highest quarterly figures on record, according to Digitimes Research.

Total production value consisted of KRW7.54 trillion for DRAM and KRW3.19 trillion for NAND flash, increasing 8.9% and 6.2%on quarter, respectively, Digitimes Research indicated. DRAM and NAND shipments by the two makers in the second quarter were larger than originally expected.

However, SK Hynix lowered NAND flash quotes to hike shipments and consequently saw second-quarter net operating margin slip on quarter.

Due to growing demand for PCs, smartphones and tablets and expected hikes in contract prices, Samsung and SK Hynix are likely to see growth in the third quarter.
