Several IC design companies in Taiwan are preparing to raise chip prices from the fourth quarter of 2021 to reflect rising manufacturing costs, according to industry sources.

MediaTek, DDI giant Lian, network chip giant Ruijuan, server peripheral chip maker Xiangshuo and motherboard management controller maker Shinjuke are all capable of passing on rising costs to customers and will raise prices from October and the first quarter of 2022, the Electronic Times reported, citing the people.

MediaTable plans to raise the price of some chip solutions, particularly Wi-Fi solutions including the MT7668 and MT7663 series, by up to 30 per cent from November 1.

In addition, it plans to raise the price of driven chips by 5-10% despite recent weakness in LCD panel demand and prices, with the new price effective from November and a 10-20% increase in the price of its SoC chips in October.

Raytheon has informed its customers that the price of all its products will be increased by about 15%, with the new price coming into effect on October 1. In September, Raytheon raised the price of some of its Wi-Fi chip solutions by 10-15%.

Broadcom, which works with Raytheon, also plans to raise chip prices by up to 20% from October. Meanwhile, Intel has reportedly notified its customers of the rise in the price of its Wi-Fi and Ethernet network chips.

Xiangshuo plans to raise chip prices by more than 20% from January 2022, and order visibility will continue until the end of 2022. Xiangshuo is best known as amD's partner and has a chip manufacturing contract with TSMC.

Motherboard management controller maker Cinda is also looking to raise chip prices in the fourth quarter, driven by strong demand for data center applications. In May, the company raised its offer by 10 per cent.
