Semiconductor digest: industry reports rising prices

During the period of unprecedented shortage and demand, it comes as no surprise that prices are rising among some of the influential semiconductor manufacturers.

It’s reported that STMicroelectronics issued a notice to its customers this week, stating that it will increase the price across all products; that the current semiconductor supply shortage continues to severely impact the entire industry, and there is no sign of recovery in the short term.

Xilinx has also issued a price increase notice across all its products, reports SemiMedia, with some ranges increasing by as much as 20%.

In the previous month TSMC announced increases to foundry prices. According to IC Design Company, TSMC’s price increase is about 7% to 9% for 7nm and 5nm, and prices for other mature process technologies are up about 20%.

The cost of raw materials are partly responsible for driving up the price. Last month the Japanese firm Shin-Etsu announced silicone products price increases, stating that it’s been necessitated by a rise in prices of raw materials such as silicon metal and methanol as well as increased logistics costs.
