Motherboard makers to increase prices again in May

Posted on Thursday, March 31 2011 @ 22:11:27 CEST by

Sources at motherboard makers told DigiTimes that motherboard prices are set to rise for the second time this year after mid-April, as shortages caused by the Japan earthquake have increased component costs. Prices are expected to be hiked by 3-8 percent after May.
As the earthquake damaged the facilities of several upstream component makers, as well as the crisis of Japan's nuclear power plants and the power brownout policy, the upstream supply chain is expected to suffer from a serious shortage, causing the downstream IT industry to face rising component prices and affecting their prices in retail channels.

The sources pointed out that several raw materials and components are already seeing price fluctuations and prices should see a more obvious increase starting in April. To reflect the increasing costs, makers are set to raise motherboard prices in May. The sources believe prices will increase about 3-8% after May and companies will make adjustments every month based on costs.
