The price of raw materials has soared: the main board is finally going up.
The raw material price soared collective: motherboard is finally going to rise although the rise of AMDRyzen for this year's PC market moment of excitement, but DRAM memory, NAND flash chip supply, SSD memory, prices continued instability, especially memory prices crazy rose to an extraordinary degree, also once graphics implicated.
But do you think it's over?
Recently, the industry upstream raw materials price rises substantially, such as epoxy resin based PCB printed circuit board materials, from the beginning of the three quarter is showing a rising trend in recent months, the cumulative increase reached 30%, the current price has hit a new high since 2012, and close to the peak in 2008.
At present, the price of some epoxy resin enterprises has reached 28 thousand yuan / ton, the highest even 29 thousand yuan / ton, pure profit liquid resin 4400 yuan / ton, solid resin 1100 yuan / so, but the key is that money is not necessarily able to buy goods.
The price crazily rose with PCB ink, which was affected by the price of raw materials, environmental protection, and the shortage of materials. Many related businesses in November increased the quoted price by 10-15%.
At the same time, resistance, capacitance and other components have increased even higher, such as the most expensive of the capacitance has risen 30 times, the cheapest also rose 20 times.
This caused a great cost pressure to the motherboard products, downstream PCB manufacturers have prices 10-15% to complain incessantly.
It is estimated that at present, the cost of a main board at present at least 10-20 yuan, of which the low end products are around 10 yuan, and the high end is about 20 yuan.
The main board market has been very depressed for two years. AMD and Intel can not drive a new platform.
