Increased costs to make motherboards more expensive

Posted on Friday, December 31 2010 @ 13:37:13 CET by


Motherboards are expected to become more expensive in the new year as motherboard makers plan to hike prices to reflect rising raw material, chipset and labor costs. Prices are expected to rise by 10 percent on average, but some models could see a price hike of 15-20 percent if Chinese labor costs continue to rise.
According to news from Digitimes, it is reported that Taiwan-based motherboard makers including Asustek Computer, Gigabyte Technology and Micro-Star International (MSI) plan to hike the prices of their motherboards to reflect rising raw material, chipset and labor costs.

Motherboard prices are likely to be hiked by 10% on average in the next three months, but some models could increase by 15-20% if labor costs in China continue to rise, the sources added.

PCB suppliers have raised their quotes drastically as copper prices have climbed to US$9,000 a ton recently from the previous US$6,000, the sources noted.
