NXP intends to raise the price of MCU and other products in the first quarter of next year by 5% -10%

Recently, the industry came out of NXP agents NXP prices received notice that it will start from the first quarter of 2018 MCU, automotive electronics and other products up the price, the price increase range of 5% to 10% range. From an industry perspective, NXP as the industry leader, if it has really raised the price flag, the same industry or will also respond, are 2018 prices or the main theme?


Recently, the news that NXP to its microcontroller, digital network, smart antenna solutions, automotive microcontrollers, secure mobile payments were 5% to 10% range of price increases, from the price of the product line of view, MCU, NFC and other NXP are the main products.

Earlier last month, Taiwan media reported that the current 8-inch silicon wafer production capacity has been comparable with the 12-inch wafers, or even longer, due to 2018 MCU, MOSFET chips have shouted in advance, the overall demand for MCU also significantly pull high.


Due to the substantial introduction of MCU architecture in automotive electronics and the Internet of Things, IDM plants including STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments and Renesas failed to meet the demand. As a result, the delivery period was extended to more than 3 months with some material shortage More up to six months.


Since 2017, many MCU manufacturers in the world have extended their product delivery from 4 months to 6 months, while Japanese MCU manufacturers have lengthened to 9 months.


According to the market analysis, there are two main reasons for the tight supply of ICs, such as MCUs and NFCs. On the one hand, the capacity of silicon wafers is full and prices continue to rise. On the other hand, demand for wireless charging, automotive electronics and Internet of Things (IoT) markets are strong.


Silicon wafer, a few days ago, the international e-commerce article "can not carry raw materials rose, the domestic price of the foundry rushed" in the show, due to silicon wafer prices, the domestic foundry and foundry wafer Foundries have sought to increase OEM fees.

At present, the market is pessimistic about the production capacity of 8-inch and 12-inch silicon wafers. The industry believes that the tight supply of 8-inch silicon wafers will not be relieved in 2018 and the 12-inch silicon wafer production capacity will remain out of stock until 2021. Global wafer fab wafer signed with customers by the end of November after about supply of 2020.


In terms of price, the price of silicon wafer has been on a quarterly basis. Data show that the price of silicon wafer in 2017 will increase by 20% ~ 30%. It is estimated that the price in the fourth quarter of 2018 will increase by 20% to 30% over the same period in 2017.


In the silicon wafer out of stock prices, wireless charging, automotive electronics and Internet of Things market a large number of imported MCU, resulting in surge in demand. Taiwan-based MCU suppliers pointed out that in 2017 the terminal market does not have too many killer applications, but IoT, cloud services, artificial intelligence, smart home, automotive electronics and other fields, continue to see some new generations of products surfaced to grab City, customers continue to increase the added value of end products, many new ways to try, new applications, hoping to stimulate sales of end products, and add new features and applications, need appropriate chip solutions to support.


Taiwan media reported that MCU customers benefited from emerging needs such as the Internet of Things, wearable devices, smart voice devices and automotive electronics. MCU customers not only upgraded from 4/8 bits to 16/32 bits, but overall MCU demand was also significant High, making Holtek, Ling Tong, New Tang, Wei Quan Electric, Song Han, Xun Jie and other Taiwan's MCU supplier revenue size, the average chip unit price and gross profit margin growth.


It is reported that Holtek's MCU for wireless charging is expected to ship more than 1 million units in 2017. As wireless charging-related applications continue to pop up next year, Holtek also estimates that shipments of wireless charging MCUs will show up in 2018 Times of substantial growth.


From an industry perspective, NXP as the industry leader, if it has really raised the price flag, the same industry or will also respond, are 2018 prices or the main theme?
