Let’s not forget that the price of DRAM chips reached its lowest point in October last year and then started to rise slightly again. The trend has amplified since the beginning of 2021 and there are multiple alerts on the subject.

TrendForce, a market research organization, has repeatedly warned about the increase in memory chip prices. An increase that is mainly caused by large purchases by OEM computer manufacturers. In the same study, it was predicted that the sales volume of PC manufacturers should increase by 20% in 2021 and that the production of laptops in the second quarter should increase by 8%. TrendForce also added that in the third quarter of this year, DRAM memory prices would increase again.

Last but not least, we should not forget the flash memory used in our precious SSDs. And here too the trend is upwards, the price of 128GB MLC modules (16GB) has also increased by 8.57% over one month.

At the beginning of April, the head of chipmaker Micron, Sanjay Mehrotra, said that a DRAM memory shortage is coming and that the situation will only get worse. Micron expects the high demand for memory chips to continue for the rest of the year, and not just for PCs.
