It is remarkable to me to discuss price increases of raw materials, due to disaster in a country with no raw materials.

Part of the problem with this disruption will be an increase in costs for all of the semi companies, not just memories. We will see price increases in most product lines due to this. This will be partly caused by a restrained supply of products but mostly caused by an increase in cost of raw materials. Its never a good time for a price increase, but during a global recession, the timing is the worst.

Since Micron is one of the major supplier of the DRAM chips, is there a possibility of DRAM price inflation due to the production interruption at Micron and its competitors in Japan?
