Some analysts are forecasting the price of memory chips, which make up about a fifth of South Korea's exports, to fall sharply in the fourth quarter.
The Taiwanese market research firm TrendForce projects the price of DRAM chips in the final three months of this year to drop by up to 8 percent from this quarter.
It cited declining demand for consumer electronics such as smartphones and TVs due in part to excess inventory.
The price of NAND flash chips is also expected to go down by as much as half-a-percent.
