Electronics are set to get even more expensive – CNBC

The world’s biggest foundries — including Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Samsung and Intel — are considering further price hikes, writes CNBC.

Reporting comments from semiconductor analyst, Peter Hanbury, the industry should expect a further round of price increases of 5-7%. Foundries have already increased prices 10-20% in the past year, Hanbury said.

TSMC warned clients for the second time in less than a year that it plans to raise prices, Nikkei Asia reported last Tuesday, citing people briefed on the matter.

Elsewhere, rival Samsung is set to increase its chipmaking prices by up to 20%, according to a Bloomberg report last Friday. Samsung did not immediately respond to a CNBC request for comment.
