Digitimes Research: Korea memory-IC industry output value to fall 10% in 1Q16
Betty Shyu, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Tuesday 16 February 2016]

The production value of South Korea's memory chip industry is expected to decline around 10% sequentially in the first quarter of 2016, due mainly to falling chip prices, according Digitimes Research.

South Korea's production value of memory chips, including DRAM and NAND flash devices, dropped 9% sequentially to KRW12.62 trillion (US$10.9 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2015, said Digitimes Research. The total production value consisted of KRW8.52 trillion for DRAM and KRW4.1 trillion for NAND flash, which represented sequential decreases of 11.5% and 3.3%, respectively.

For all of 2015, the production value of South Korea's memory chip industry reached a record KRW52.5 trillion, Digitimes Research indicated. During the year, the DRAM sector generated KRW36.5 trillion accounting for 69.5% of the country's total production value of memory chips.

In 2015, South Korea accounted for more than 60% of the worldwide memory-IC industry output value, Digitimes Research noted. In the DRAM field, the country grabbed a larger share at more than 70%.
