Samsung Electronics has retained its top spot among dynamic random access memory (DRAM) suppliers in the second quarter of 2006, according to a study released by DRAMeXchange market research company. According to the firm, during the quarter leading makers of memory continued to solidify their positions, while smaller makers’ market share dropped.

DRAM market revenues increased by 14.5% sequentially in the second quarter with the fastest growing DRAM companies in the industry being Hynix, Elpida, ProMOS and Winbond.

Korean manufacturers still acquire the largest market share, reaching 41.9%, while Taiwan DRAM makers come in second, accounting for 17.9%.

As Samsung, Hynix, Micron and other relevant companies focus on Flash, CMOS Image Sensor and so forth in their product lineup; only Taiwan DRAM makers are seen expanding their DRAM production capacity in 2007. Therefore, its sales revenue ratio is expected to continue growing in the future, believe DRAMeXchange analysts.
