2011: Electronic Component Prices Are Expected to Rise by 5-10%

Electrolytic
Capacitors are expected to rise 5-10% in prices.



Manufacturers did
not take all the electronic components into bullish market in prices in 2011,
for example most vendors believe that the OVP components will remain stable in
price. However, one market director of TDK-EPC Group for china region said, it
will show a rise in the price of aluminum electrolytic capacitors, due to costs
for the raw materials (aluminum, paper, etc.), energy (the major part of anode
foil production cost) are increasing. At the same time, the labor cost in china
are rising at high speed recently, and in next few years will still see a
continuing increase. The tantalum electrolytic capacitors will meet the same
situation in the coming years.

 



Compared with other
types of capacitors, electrolytic capacitors have three very prominent
features, one is the electrolytic capacitor has a very large capacity, which is
several dozen to several hundred times larger than those of other capacitors.
The second is that the rated capacity can be very large, which can easily be
ten thousands of ¼f but still cannot hold a candle to the double layer
capacitor. Third, the price of electrolytic capacitors is an overwhelming
advantage over other types of electrolytic capacitors due the common industrial
materials such as aluminum that used as the constructional material of
electrolytic capacitors. However, if there is price rising on materials, it is
no double that there will see the same level price increase on the common used  of
electrolytic capacitors.









Inductor products will
also see a 5-10% increase on price.



The
prices of electronic components are mainly determined with the materials and
labor costs. Recently, due to a slight price-rise on copper wire and ferrite
and an obvious wage and salary increase, hạ long it is expected that there will see a
5-10% upside on inductor products prices. Some people hold the idea that demand
for the electronic components of inductor products will keep growing in 2011,
but the growth rate will be slowed down compared with those in 2010.
