The trade war between the US and China, with Huawei being the focus of worldwide attention, could be the reason for the decline in DRAM chip prices and other components from now until the end of the year. According to DRAMeXchange, earlier this year they made a prediction that the price of RAM chips for computers, smartphones and other technology devices would fall 10% in the third quarter and 5% in the fourth quarter. But with Huawei's current status, when many smartphone production lines are temporarily suspended, DRAM chip makers will lose a major partner, which will lead to increased inventory and prices. That decreased.
As a result, DRAMeXchange expects RAM chip prices to fall 15% in the third quarter and 10% in the fourth quarter. Combined with the 10% price reduction, the price of this component was estimated to decline 35% this year in the first two quarters of 2019.
This also means that in 2019, companies like Samsung or Hynix will suffer losses in terms of sales. The price of RAM will fall to the bottom, at the same time, corporations will begin to restructure supply and stabilize prices. Consequently, by 2020, RAM chip prices may rise again.
