In the first quarter of 2022, Samsung generated revenues of 6.32 billion U.S. dollars from the sales of NAND flash products worldwide, ranking them first among manufacturers. This was an increase from the 6.11 billion U.S. dollars the company generated in the previous quarter. Kioxia ranked second among vendors, generating 3.38 billion U.S. dollars in revenue from the sales of NAND flash products.
Computer memory market
Computer memory refers to the physical devices used to store data or programs for use in a computer. Primary storage allows for the short-term storage of data, while secondary storage, either in the form of hard disk drives (HDDs), solid-state drives (SSDs), flash drives, or other longer-term storage devices, record and hold data indefinitely, even when the main device is unpowered. A solid-state drive (SSD) is a newer storage technology that has no moving parts. Instead, it uses NAND flash memory, a type of non-volatile storage that does not require power to retain data. Lower-priced laptops often still come with the cheaper HDD option, but most mid-range to high-end PCs come with an SSD instead.
SK Hynix to acquire Intel’s NAND flash business
In October 2020, the South Korean memory semiconductor supplier, SK Hynix, announced that it will acquire Intel’s NAND flash business for nine billion U.S. dollars. As part of the deal, SK Hynix will gain Intel’s Dalian fab facility in China, the NAND wafer and components operations, NAND IP and staff, and the solid-state drive (SSD) business. The companies hope approval for the deal will be obtained by the second half of 2021, with the SK Hynix-Intel combination set to occupy between 20 and 23 percent of NAND flash revenue, second only to Samsung. At the time of the announcement, SK Hynix and Intel ranked fourth and sixth respectively among vendors.
