NAND flash chip prices have fallen to the levels of two years ago, while SSD prices have hit their sweet spot, according to industry sources. Falling SSD prices are set to drive the adoption of SSDs in notebooks and other consumer computing devices, according to industry sources.

Artificial intelligence (AI), automotive electronics and video surveillance are being identified as the applications set to drive the long-term growth of the SSD market, said the sources.

According to research firm ChinaFlashMarket (CFM), SSD prices have continued their downward trend in September with prices for 120GB models falling US$0.50 to US$23.50. Spot market prices for 120GB SSDs have fallen below US$20, while prices for 240GB ones have dropped to a record low of US$36. Meanwhile, spot prices for 480GB SSDs have slid about US$2 to US$66.

With SSD prices reaching their sweet spot, SSD shipments worldwide are forecast to top 200 million units in 2018, CFM indicated.
