On the DRAM side, strong demand for datacenter DRAM and customers stocking up to preempt any market uncertainties in the second half have contributed to solid supply and demand and strong pricing. The company’s efforts to enhance profitability through cost competitiveness in expanding the 1xnm process also boosted gains in the first quarter.

Looking ahead to the second quarter, while overall demand is expected to be solid due mainly to demand for high-density server SSD, overall supply will remain tight due to constraints on the industry’s 3D NAND supply. Samsung Semiconductor will improve profitability and product competitiveness by expanding 48-layer V-NAND supply and mass producing 64-layer V-NAND.

In DRAM, with the expansion of new server platforms in the market, demand for high performance server DRAM over 64GB is forecast to increase. New mobile device launches and adoption of higher density DRAM in the second quarter will increase demand for mobile DRAM. Samsung Semiconductor will remain profitable with high performance, high value-added chipsets.

In Q2 2017, overall supply and demand in the memory market will be stable amid peak seasonality and new electronic mobile devices being released in the market. However, tight supply-demand conditions may change due to possible expansion of industry supply.
