Oversupply of chips by major manufacturers and lower demand are to blame. To cool down these issues, Samsung and Micron have slowed down their production. Memory companies have taken a big hit as Samsung’s earnings fell by 26.3%, SK Hynix’s and Micron’s by 31.7% and 30% in Q1 2019 respectively.

Samsung is currently leading the memory market share with 41.3% followed by SK Hynix with 31.2%. The companies will have to clear out their existing inventories before further production and going back to full speed.
