Samsung is currently considering increasing the cost of its semiconductor products by up to 20%, which will ultimately force consumers to pay more for new devices.
like Bloomberg Report(Opens in a new window), considering price increases is a response to the fact that almost everything in the world is becoming more expensive, including the cost of raw materials and the cost of logistics surrounding production pipelines. The final price increase is expected to be related to the sophistication of the components being manufactured, but this will still mean vendors will be paying 15-20% more for their chips.
As a giant in the semiconductor industry, Samsung produces foundry solutions that can manufacture processors, as well as memory products, storage solutions, and other semiconductor products for a variety of industries. Add in price increases of up to 20% in all of these segments, and anything that uses Samsung parts will inevitably go up in price.
For now, Samsung is not commenting on the matter, but the company doesn’t have to. We’ll all know that this happened when the prices of new smartphones, tablets, laptops and SSDs started going up. And if Samsung is faced with more expensive logistics, so will the companies that produce end products that include parts it manufactures, so we should all be prepared for the fact that the technology costs a lot more every year. do.
