Due to fabrication shortage and a higher request for smartphone memory the DRAM prices have increase during the last 9 month (up to a factor 2) www.geizhals.de 32GB_DDR4_price_dev_May2017.JPG

The memory industry has gone through several cycles of over and under-provisioning of DRAM chips during the last years, which has made this market very volatile. http://www.anandtech.com/show/11100/micron-2017-analyst-conference-roadmap-updates-forecasts-and-ceo-retiring



The end of the NAND structure scaling 2 years ago lead to heavy investments into 3D structures for memory cells. The current level is 64 layers with 72 anticipated at the end of the year. After improving the fabrication yield industry expects that the 3D market share of memory unit shipped will reach the 50% level at the end of 2017. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4067295-micron-technology-advances-nand-competitors
