Samsung, Hynix DRAM exports slump

Surprise, surprise...

Korea's major DRAM producers are clearly having a very tough time selling memory. A very tough time indeed. And it's getting worse.

Take the amount of memory Samsung and Hynix export. In July between them they exported $213 million worth of memory chips, down 41.5 per cent on June's figure and 69.4 per cent on January's, according to figures from local memory market watchers cited by the Korea Herald.

SRAM exports weren't much better, with July's sales overseas falling to $51.5 million, down 26.8 per cent on June. ®
