Optical disc prices could rise 50 percent in 2H 2013

Posted on Saturday, December 29 2012 @ 19:10:59 CET by

Robert Wong, the chairman of Taiwan's largest optical disc maker, CMC Magnetics, claims prices for optical discs may increase by nearly 50 percent in the second half of 2013. DigiTimes explains the price hike will be a result of a reshuffling in the Japanese optical disc industry, as well as second- and third-tier Taiwanese makers stopping production in 2012.
Mainly due to growing demand for DVD discs in emerging markets, and for Blu-ray Disc (BD) discs in mature markets, global optical disc demand in 2012 is estimated to drop by less than 10% rather than the originally forecast 10-15%, Wong indicated.

As part of the reshuffle, some makers have, or will, cut prices to clear inventories and this will bring negative impact on CMC's operations in the fourth quarter of 2013, Wong said.
