According to media reports, due to the sharp rise in the price of raw materials such as aluminum, Nijikang, the global leader in aluminum electrolytic capacitors, raised the price of electrolytic capacitors: occlusal screw type, radial lead type, and chip type were increased by 7%, 10%, and 10%, respectively; Conductive polymer capacitors are raised by 7%; new orders will take effect from August 1, 2018. This is the second price increase for the company this year.
The industry believes that the aluminum foil of the upstream raw material of aluminum electrolytic capacitors is strictly controlled by the government, and some small manufacturers have been eliminated, resulting in a shortage of aluminum foil, which has led to a long delivery period for Japanese electrolytic capacitor manufacturers. In the domestic Xinjiang region, this year’s large-scale operation cleaned up the illegal factories, and the construction of the completed and completed factories was immediately suspended/discontinued, so that the aluminum foil, which was originally oversupplied, was quickly turned out of stock. Since last year, the supply of aluminum electrolytic capacitors has been very tight due to the increase in demand. Leading companies have once again raised their prices, which will have obvious demonstration effects on the entire industry of aluminum electrolytic capacitors.
