Amid shortages for select products in the market, DRAM makers are attempting to raise their contract prices by three to five per cent in the first half of January, according to a report from the on Tuesday (Jan. 3).

"Encouraged by the stronger-than-expected demand in [December] and [January], most DRAM makers have announced the attempt of raising contract prices by three to five per cent for both DDR and DDR2 chips," according to the DRAM clearing house. "Since DRAM makers have reduced their DDR2 production output since November, a shortage of DDR2, as well as tight supply of DDR are reported," said the firm.

Product demand, coupled with the ease of chip-set shortages from Intel Corp., is fuelling the proposed contract price hikes in the marketplace, according to the firm. DRAMeXchange expects demand will continue up through Chinese New Year.

During the holidays, a 256Mb it DDR part running at 400MHz remained flat at Rs.95.47 ($2.11) and a 512Mb DDR chip operating at 400MHz was up slightly from Rs.186.88 ($4.13) to Rs.187.33 ($4.14).
