Samsung Electronics' global DRAM market share was the highest in six quarters.

Although the overall market was sluggish after the `` super boom '' in the memory semiconductor market, the gap between the top two companies was widened based on the `` technical super-gap, '' and it was assessed to solidify `` Sungsung. ''

According to a report by the global market research firm DRAMXchange on the 9th, the global DRAM market revenue in the second quarter of this year was US $ 14.44 billion (approximately 17.96 trillion won), compared to the previous quarter ($ 1,333 billion). 9.1% decrease

This was due to the full-fledged decline in demand and price decline since the second half of last year, but the rate of decline was slower than the previous quarter (-28.6%).

By company, Samsung Electronics held an overwhelming number one position with US $ 67.83 billion, taking up 45.7% of the market share.

Revenue decreased 2.7% QoQ, but its share rose by 3.0 percentage points.

This is the highest share since 4Q 2017 (46.0%).

It fell to 41.3% in the fourth quarter last year, but continued to rise for the second consecutive quarter.

SK Hynix recorded sales of $ 4,262 million, down 12.6% from the previous quarter, and its market share fell by 1.2 percentage points to 28.7%.

In the US, Micron was the worst performer among the top companies, with sales ($ 3.41 billion) decreasing by 19.1% due to the US-China trade war. Market share also dropped by 2.5 percentage points to 20.5 percent.

In addition, Taiwan's Nanya ($ 400 million) and Winbond ($ 148 million) saw their sales grow 8.4 percent and 0.1 percent, respectively, while Powerchip's ($ 83 million) decreased 15.3 percent.

DRAMXchange predicts that the sales of the global DRAM market will likely decrease in the third quarter of this year.

The report said, "Damsung spot prices have risen in July due to a conflict between Korea and Japan over exports of (semiconductor) materials, but because the spot market is so small, it has not helped to adjust the inventory." Fixed contract prices continued to decline. ”

An industry official said, "The more difficult the market situation is, the more technologically advanced companies are paying off." So-called 'Semiconductor Korea Allied Forces' market share is consistently over 70%, leading the global market. "

However, the recent uncertainties caused by Japan's export control of materials and China's semiconductor industry have weakened the outlook for Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix.
