Mobile DRAM Revenue Increases in Second Quarter
Revenue for mobile dynamic random access memory (DRAM) increased to its highest level during the second quarter of 2012 with steady pricing, according to IHS iSuppli. Mobile DRAM accounted for 26% of all DRAM revenue, amounting to $1.85 billion with a total of $1.83 billion the previous quarter.
Mike Howard, a senior principal analyst for DRAM & memory at IHS said this increase was the fourth straight quarter of growth for mobile DRAM revenue. “The achievement is notable: While the overall DRAM market is down in 2012 compared to year-ago levels, mobile DRAM revenue is trending higher.”
Samsung Electronics continued to hold at the top of the mobile DRAM market in Q2 with sales of $1 billion, which accounts for 61% of the global mobile DRAM market. Hynix was second with sales of $362 million, down $3 million from the first quarter. Elpida and Micron were in third and fourth places, respectively.
