Flash NAND, the main product sold to data center and enterprise customers, also fell by 27.7% and 32%, respectively.The decline in both quarters was the biggest since 2008.

The decline in market demand for PC, mobile phones and servers that began in the second half of last year exacerbated this trend. Almost all memory and flash chip manufacturers are losing money. The annual output value of the storage industry has reached US $160 billion, with a loss of US $5 billion in 2022 alone.
