Spreading out of stock! Crystal oscillator manufacturers announce price increases

October 21, 2020

As the agent of the crystal oscillator, as far as the editor knows, recently, a domestic crystal oscillator company issued a price adjustment announcement. The company said that from September 26, 2020, the shipping price of a certain model of product will be appropriately increased. The price is increased by more than 15% on the basis of the current price, and the increase of special frequency points depends on different situations.

The company said that due to the recent changes in the domestic and foreign trade environment, the cost of various raw materials has risen, and the cost of products has continued to rise. The pressure on the cost of some of the company's products has gradually increased, and the pressure caused by rising costs cannot be relieved through internal mining . At the same time, in order to continuously introduce more low-power, ultra-small, high-quality new products, the company has increased its R&D investment, which has led to a substantial increase in the company's production and operating costs.

Crystal oscillators are now in short supply, many models are out of stock, and prices fluctuate every day, such as 3215 package, 32.768MHZ is super short, there is no resources, it doesn't matter, there is no stock at all.

In fact, on August 26th, crystal oscillator manufacturers stated that due to the combined factors such as rising raw materials, key technology and process upgrades, demand growth, and changes in supply and demand, the prices of their products have increased to a certain extent.

It is reported that the current delivery time of the crystal oscillator market is not very good. Although the current delivery time has improved compared with the beginning of the year, there are still some shortages. It is expected that it will improve by the end of this year or early next year.

Crystal oscillator is ubiquitous in electronic equipment. It is an indispensable basic component for clock frequency and reference frequency signals in electronic circuits. It is widely used in 5G equipment, automotive electronics, mobile terminals, smart wearables, home appliances, computer phones, medical equipment and other fields .

Since the beginning of this year, TWS headsets are in a period of rapid growth, single product prices are high, and industry profit margins are also high, and they are leveraging a market of nearly 10 billion yuan. In TWS headsets, the market demand for thermal crystal oscillators such as 2520 and 2016, which are small, high-precision, and low-power consumption, is also increasing. In addition, high-tech fields such as 5G base stations, automotive electronics, and the Internet of Things have a high demand for temperature-compensated crystals and thermal crystals in two sizes of 2520. Orders for this model of products have increased, gradually showing a trend of rising volume and price.

Data shows that the current global crystal oscillator industry market is gradually increasing. With the gradual expansion of application fields and the development of 5G, Wi-Fi, Internet of Things, smart wearables, etc., its market scale will continue to expand.

However, it should not be ignored that for a long time in the field of crystal oscillators, Japanese veteran manufacturers KDS, NDK, etc., have a market share of over 60%. The remaining market is basically divided between Taiwanese and European and American manufacturers. The market share of domestic crystal oscillator manufacturers Lower.

Especially based on the high requirements of electronic components for materials and processes, coupled with the advantages of equipment, Japan currently also occupies a high position in the field of high-frequency crystal oscillators, and the prices of related products remain high. According to analysis by industry insiders, the current high fundamental frequency crystal oscillator, under the same size, is about 5-7 times more expensive than ordinary crystal oscillators due to the complicated process and higher cost.

On the other hand, in the domestic market, with the demand for high base frequencies of 5G and Wi-Fi 6, the current crystal oscillators are gradually developing in the fields of miniaturization (that is, below 1612 size), lithographic crystals and temperature compensated crystal oscillators, and the demand for their products has greatly increased.

However, under the influence of the epidemic, leading global crystal oscillator manufacturers once suspended production, and the newly added capacity of the domestic crystal oscillator market was also halved, and efforts were made to destock. At present, the supply system of major international manufacturers has not yet fully recovered, especially for mid-to-high-end crystal oscillators such as Japanese and American products. Imports of some mid-to-high-end crystal products are restricted. In the case of increased demand and exhaustion of inventory, new demand for price increases will follow the trend.

In fact, there have been many news of crystal price increase this year. Some manufacturers said that it was because of the increase in raw material prices, and some people in the industry believed that it was mainly because of the epidemic that made it difficult to enter products from major overseas factories, and some manufacturers stopped working and caused insufficient production capacity. , The imbalance between supply and demand in the crystal oscillator market has led to price increases.
