As is clearly visible in the current market situation, prices and delivery times for IC controllers and TFT glasses are increasing massively. From experience we have to assume that this situation will probably last for months and thus also affect the year 2021.
The problem is that various TFT glass formats (sizes) are not produced continuously and in some cases are even set to on hold in production planning. As a result, the delivery dates for TFT glass as well as IC controllers are drastically increased or partly set to allocation.
These delays can also affect material already placed. In addition, the price increases unfortunately do not stop at already placed materials, which are needed in the medium term.
In order to be able to master this situation in the best possible way, we are constantly in close contact with our production partners. In addition, our SRM managers are on site in the Far East and can thus grasp the situation directly at the pulse of events and initiate the necessary measures.
It is extremely important in the current situation that orders are placed as early as possible. Ideally immediately after receiving a quotation. This is because the market is very dynamic and prices can no longer be maintained over a long period of time.
