On the contrary, sales of Micron Technology and Infineon Technologies AG slightly fell in the second quarter.

Troubled memory manufacturer Hynix Semiconductor increased sales from $476 million to $510 million in the quarter, but it was not enough to overtake Infineon Technologies AG or Micron Technology Inc., which were ranked third and second, respectively; as a result, Hynix stays on the fourth place with 13.7% market share. In the first quarter the Korean memory manufacturer held 12.7% of the market.
