The UK market for memory has now remained stable for over four weeks following the price slump in the early part of this year. The market remained settled after manufacturers predicted an upturn in activity.
The market had bottomed out after the slow-down because three weeks ago the Asian manufacturers got together to stop price cutting, according to one industry source. Other reasons include the end of dumping by OEMs which had over-ordered.
Alan Stanley, MD at Osmosis, said: 'There is a certain price at which it becomes untenable to keep selling. The Koreans realised that they could continue to sell even if they pushed the price up a bit.'
