Windows 98 launch could recover memory market
Alex Mayhew-Smith Martin Mulligan, managing director of PC component distributor Datrontech, expects to see a recovery in the memory market by next year. “With the launch of Windows 98, the memory market may well recover in a year’s time,” he said. Two years ago semiconductor companies cut back on the building of fabs but with Windows 98, 32Mbytes is recommended, which will influence demand, said Mulligan. However, industry observers have expressed doubts over the expected take-up of Windows 98. The company is also planning to increase its sales by 30 per cent in the next year by concentrating on the small and medium enterprise (SME) sector. Mulligan said that the SME sector had great potential for sales growth. “The multi-nationals and SMEs are growing. It is the middle ground which is being squeezed at the moment,” he said.
