TAIPEI, Taiwan - According to Taiwan's Economic Daily News, prices for upstream PCB materials will begin to be raised after the extended National Holiday in Mainland China. This is mainly due to tight international raw material prices and terminal demand.

Citing information from PCB industry insiders, the report pointed out that the ratio of product supplies of Korean PCB providers such as Interflex and Youngpoon is lacking while demand is increasing. In addition, the companies pursued orders in Taiwan in August causing demand to become stronger for related upstream materials.

Furthermore, because accelerated destocking increased among PCB clients in September and client demand is increasing prior to the National Holiday, prices for upstream PCB materials are expected to increase in October.

On the other hand, observing upstream electronics supply chains, in late September the reported prices of key components rose with Multi-layer Ceramic Capacitor (MLCC) prices experiencing the largest increase, and this resulted in the news of price increases in the fourth quarter for upstream PCB materials.
