MCU prices to remain higher for several years, says Yole

By Vahid alpha at English Wikipedia

According to technology researchers, Yole, MCU (microcontroller unit) prices rose more than expected in 2021, and are expected to continue rising in 2022, and are unlikely to drop significantly before 2026.

The report pointed out that in 2024 and beyond, excessive fab construction may drive down prices, but it is unlikely to directly affect the MCU market as these new fabs will not target legacy MCUs on mature processes, but rather cutting-edge MPUs, GPUs and accelerators.

Overall, semiconductor demand has outstripped supply as supply chains remain disrupted and order lead times continue to stretch, even as manufacturers have raised prices to curb demand and keep factories operating at full capacity.

To avoid electronics supply-chain disruptions, you may also wish to consult an expert in electronics component supply. With more than three decades of supply-chain expertise, Astute Electronics is ideally placed to work with you on your daily component requirements.
