Samsung continues to rank first in DRAM and NAND market share
Samsung has maintained its leading position in the semiconductor memory industry for many years. It has ranked first in the NAND flash memory market for 20 consecutive years, and in the DRAM market for 30 years. Its market share is more than 10% ahead of its competitors. According to Business Korea, Samsung’s technology leadership is threatened as other manufacturers start to make efforts in the DRAM and NAND flash memory markets.
According to industry insiders, the quality of YMTC’s 232-layer NAND flash memory is unexpectedly high, so Samsung is very concerned. Samsung has also been chased by latecomers in the memory market and is approaching step by step. In addition, TSMC is far ahead in the foundry business, and Samsung is facing huge challenges.
