Jeffrey Mathews , Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics says, “The smartphone memory market observed growth in revenue despite the headwinds in demand. The growth was fueled by the shipment of high-density memory chips and recovering chip prices. Samsung Memory gained share in H1 2020 owing to the shipment of memory chips featuring UFS 3.0, UFS 3.1 and LPDDR5 memory technologies for smartphones.”

According to Stephen Entwistle, Vice President of the Strategy Analytics Strategic Technologies Practice, “Smartphone memory is expected to witness an increase in customer demand for chips due to the seasonal factors in the smartphone market along with rising momentum for memory chips with higher storage content and faster memory speeds. However, the latest US Government sanction on Huawei is expected to impact the memory chip vendors negatively.”
