In 2018, the average prices for NAND memory chips used in SSDs have already halved, but the decline is still far from the end. According to the head of the board of directors of Adata, next year, flash memory will continue to fall in price, and at an even faster pace.
The main reason for the decline in the cost of NAND will be the active increase in its supply. In 2019, the largest memory manufacturers intend to commission lines for the production of 96-layer chips. Companies such as Samsung, Micron Intel, Toshiba and SK Hynix will increase their flash memory shipments by 50-100 thousand units per month.
