Analyst firm Trendforce predicted that the average selling price of NAND Flash would be the basic building block of everything SSD (Solid State Drives) and microSD cards will fall by up to 15% in the current quarter. It’s already down nearly 25% in the last quarter, prompting the biggest manufacturers; Kioxia, Solidigm, Micron and WDC will cut production to reduce supply to the market.

Weak consumer demand and business SSD customers combined with Samsung’s reluctance to continue producing as much NAND as possible means that the price drop we’ve seen for SSD and microSD products over the past 12 months is likely to continue unabated with smaller capacities being phased out.
