Taipei, May 12 (CNA) Inotera Memories Inc. (華亞科), one of Taiwan’s leading dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chip suppliers, said Tuesday that growth momentum in the world’s DRAM market will start to pick up in the third quarter.
On the sidelines of the company’s annual general meeting, Inotera Chairman Charles Kau (高啟全) said that global DRAM demand is expected to increase from the third quarter, when international mobile device brands such as Apple, Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co., will launch new models to stimulate sales.
The revival in global DRAM demand is expected to follow a slowdown seen in the first half of this year, when smartphone shipments in the China market weakened, Kau said. [FULL STORY]
