NAND Flash Manufacturer Highlights
The majority of Samsung's market momentum in Q1 came from the high-density memory card, eMCP, and SSD products. Even though the weak shipments of high-end smartphones in Q2 are anticipated to impact sales of eMMC and other related products, the momentum of the enterprise SSD shipments is expected to remain strong, estimated to rise by at least 15% quarterly. With regard to the technological migration progresses, Samsung is currently known to already produce its entire line of PC-based eMMC and eMCP SSDs using the 19nm technology. The company’s Xi’an fab, whose operations officially began in May, will focus entirely on manufacturing 3D NAND Flash components.
SanDisk’s 1ynm production ratio will exceed 50% in Q1, while the 19nm products will be reserved for enterprise SSD and other specialty products. The 1znm test production will begin in Q4, and 3D NAND flash mass production will not begin until 2016. As equipment will not be moved into fab 5, SanDisk’s joint venture with Toshiba, until the fourth quarter, this year’s output will come from technology migration. SanDisk’s bit output is projected to see a 25-35% YoY growth in 2014.
