Dear Valued Customer,
The continuous increment of MLCC components pricing never ends!
The shortages of capacitors and resistors have not improved and only worsened over the past few months. Recent article related to further price hike of MLCC components by suppliers like Murata as followed: https://technews.cn/2018/06/19/mlcc-murata-4/
Basically, the Chinese article states that Murata is still cutting down on supplies, and demanding a further 2 to 3 folds of price increment on top of the earlier price hike.
Furthermore, Lead time has been increased drastically to up to 40 weeks. In order to maintain a healthy delivery date to our customers who rely heavily on our hardware, do note that from 1st of July onwards, price adjustments have to be made for the following products:
WiFi modules: +8%
Embedded Boards: +9%
Do note that the price hike for above mentioned products will directly increase the price of assembled products such as access points and routers.
For customers who have not place orders with us yet, if you would like to place an order with your existing pricing, please place your PO before 1st of July.
Do contact our sales representatives to discuss your planning and buffer allowance.
Hope for your kind understanding on this.
Compex Marketing Team
