Hard disk drives could finally be out by Christmas if this trend continues

Analyst firm Trendforce predicted that the average selling price of NAND Flash, the building block of all SSD (SSDs) and microSD cards will fall by up to 15% in the current quarter. It is already down by nearly 25% over the last quarter, prompting the largest manufacturers; Kioxia, Solidigm, Micron and WDC will reduce their production in order to reduce supply on the market.

Low consumer demand and Enterprise SSD combined with Samsung’s reluctance to continue producing as much NAND as possible means that the price drop we’ve seen over the past 12 months on SSD and microSD products will likely continue unabated, with smaller capacities being phased out .
