Since the second half of last year, the upstream foundry production capacity has been tight, especially the 8-inch wafer production capacity is extremely short, and then many foundries have raised the price of 8-inch wafer foundry, and soon 12-inch wafers Wafer production capacity has also begun to fall short of demand.
The shortage of production capacity and price increases in upstream wafer foundries, as well as the problems of rising raw material prices, have also been quickly passed to downstream packaging and testing, IC design and IDM manufacturers. In order to reduce their own cost pressure, these manufacturers have to start. Follow up with price increases.
Especially at the end of December last year, price increase letters from major manufacturers came in one after another, and one after another announced price increases starting from January 1, 2021.
Now, with the arrival of 2021, a new round of price increases has begun!
We summarizes the notices of major semiconductor manufacturers that will take effect from January 1, 2021, and hope to provide you with some valuable references.
