Keywords:mlcc? yageo? taiyo yuden?

Market glut is forcing Taiwan MLCC makers to drop their prices this quarter. Japan-invested Yageo Corp. is expecting prices to fall by 4 to 8 percent this quarter, while Murata Mfg Co. Ltd anticipates a 2.5 percent drop.

In 2003, Taiwan MLCC manufacturers reported a shortage in supply which resulted in a price increase of 5 to 10 percent. This quarter, however, manufacturers are expanding capacities and creating an oversupply. Makers such as Yageo and Taiyo Yuden are boosting production at double-digit percentages, outpacing this quarter's demand, which is estimated at 4 to 8 percent.
