After dropping 25% last year, a 3% rise this year does not make up for much. Yes, the remaining players can add market share with Elpida out of the running, but the overall market is not growing much.

Extrapolating from the old to the new is natural but dangerous these days. For sure PCs need DRAM but tablets and smartphones are so far not as big a driver. Iphone and Ipad do not even use 1 GB. The new consideration for these devices is power consumption, where DRAM is a big contributor with much less value added compared to storage.
