DigiTimes reports Taiwanese power supply makers will increase prices by 10 percent due to continuous shortage of upstream materials and strong demand from system makers.
Delta Electronics CEO Yancey Hai was cited as confirming that the company has already raised prices to transfer some increased cost to customers. Since capacity remains tight, system makers are "cutting in front of waiting lines" with rush orders, he added.
Acbel spokesperson pointed out that system makers are all waiting for power supplies, especially products for servers due to the rise of cloud computing, according to EDN. The company plans to increase prices in May and June by 10%, and Acbel's current capacity is merely sufficient for 10% of orders.
