Macronix benefits from supply-demand imbalances in non-volatile memory, enjoying burgeoning growth
Amid rising global trade tensions in 2019, the semiconductor industry is experiencing revenue declines as it struggles with the changes and uncertainties resulting from the technology war between the US and China. Flash memory prices peaked in 2017 but then started to go on a downward trend until reaching a bottom in 2019. With the tug of war between market demand and production capacity in addition to the shift in product segmentation, there are still global economic uncertainties going forward. However, a slew of new applications enabled by 5G x AI technologies are catching market attention, including automotive electronics, artificial intelligence (AI), 8K TV and streaming video, smart home, and smart IoT. They will open up new opportunities as the year 2020 unfolds.
