While a backstop of orders remains, demand for SSDs has dropped compared to those seen last year when working from home was the norm, and more individuals were buying computer equipment.

The rising demand for SSDs is being drew apart, due to the global economic downturn and increasing inflation. That''s why companies, especially Chinese smartphone manufacturers, are reducing stock. As such, the NAND flash market has an oversupply.

When it comes to enterprise SSDs, it''s a different story. TrendForce predicts that global enterprise SSD acquisition capacity will increase by 10% from quarter over quarter, partly due to hyperscale data centers, making the price of these SSDs more likely.

The Chromebook demand has continued to decline since Q2 2022, indicating that prices for the machines'' eMMC storage (and the cheapest version of the Steam Deck) are predicted to decrease by 3-8% in Q3, although consumers are concerned that these devices would not become any cheaper.

Both TLC and QLC NAND wafers continue to fall. They were down 8-11% in Q2, and are expected to fall 5-10% in the third quarter.

PC builders may finally start enjoying their hobby again after an eternity of high prices and difficult-to-find components, particularly with RTX 3000 cards below MSRP for the first month since Ampere''s launch.
