The average inventory of memory chip makers was close to four months, mainly due to falling demand. Sources said orders from the data center fell sharply, overall consumer confidence remained weak, and demand for related electronics was weak, which in turn affected demand for related memory chips.
In addition to rising inventories, memory chip makers are under pressure from falling prices in the second half of the year.
In a July report,media pointed out that memory chip prices would fall if smartphone sales were disappointing in the second half of the year, and in August, a source in the industry chain said the price of memory chips was expected to fall 10 per cent month-on-month in the fourth quarter.
