Supply chain price hikes announced by Yageo and ON Semiconductor

The Taiwan-based passive component giant, Yageo Corporation, has recently notified customers that its chip resistors and tantalum capacitors will increase in price by 1%, and MLCC will increase by about 1% to 3%. The new prices will take effect on June 1 according to reports here.

“From a cost perspective, copper prices, ceramic substrates, transportation and labor costs have all increased. Yageo raised prices again in response to rising costs,” said the report.

Around the same time U.S. semiconductor and IC device manufacturer, On Semiconductor, has issued a price increase notice to its customers and distribution partners in mid-May that it will increase prices on July 10, 2021.

ON Semiconductor stated that it will take some actions to further ensure the stability of the supply chain to meet customer needs, including further targeted price increases, as necessary, in the most negatively impacted portfolios. Price change will be reflected in the Q3 2021 pricing cycle, which will become effective on July 10, 2021 as planned. Read more here
