Reported that DRAM chips are responsible for temporary memory of data, affecting the performance of smartphones, servers and other electronic devices. Its market size has reached 100 billion yen (100,000 yen, or 6383 yuan). Due to the relatively high technical requirements, at present, Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix and Meguiar Technologies in Korea alone account for more than 95% of the global share. Chinese companies could not produce high-end semiconductors such as DRAM chips, although they could produce cheap ordinary chips for household appliances.
According to several industry insiders, Changxin Storage is expected to start mass production from late 2019 to early 2020. Initial production capacity is converted into silicon wafers, which can reach about 10,000 pieces per month, less than 1% of global production. However, for China, which relies on overseas companies for high-performance semiconductors, the start of mass production is a big step.
According to the report, the Chinese government has positioned the semiconductor industry as a key industry. In 2018, Chinas domestic self-sufficiency rate of semiconductors is about 15%, but Chinas goal is to increase the self-sufficiency rate to 40% by 2020 and 70% by 2025.
