Semi Chip Prices Expected To Rise Through All Of 2021

• by Tyler Durden

This month alone, suppliers like Japan's top silicone producer, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd. marked up prices between 10% and 20%, according to Caixin, who reported that growing input costs and supply disruptions could be tide that continues to push up prices. 

Shin-Etsu blamed their price hikes on the rising cost of silicon metal, which they said was a result of demand out of China.

Names like Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC), United Microelectronics Corp., and Powerchip Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. have all announced intentions to raise prices in similar fashion. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. has also said prices are coming in the form of suspending wafer price reductions beginning December 31 this year.
