The article focuses on a report by iSuppli Corp., on the memory industry outlining a supply and demand imbalance that the company believes will postpone a true recovery in profitability for the segment. iSuppli noted that overall memory chip prices are expected to stabilize during the remaining quarters of 2009. It was also analyzed that due to a long-lasting glut of DRAM, the imbalance between supply and demand is too great for this market to recover to profitability any time soon.
