"The export curbs apply to three high-tech materials: fluorinated polyimide, photoresists and hydrogen fluoride.
Japan is the dominant producer of those materials which are vital to make memory chips and display screens.

That sounds to me like the current trend of cheap RAM and SSDs is going to come to an end…
