UMC plans to increase 12-inch foundry quotation by about 13% from July

Due to the tight production capacity and difficulty in meeting market demand, many chip foundries have or plan to increase foundry prices, including UMC (UMC). It is reported that UMC plans to increase 12-inch foundry quotations by about 13% from July

In early January of this year, it is reported that due to the tight production capacity, the chip foundry Lianhua Electronics has increased the foundry price of 12-inch wafers, but the company did not disclose the extent of the increase.

Now, according to industry sources, UMC plans to increase the foundry price of 12-inch wafers by about 13% starting in July. Established in 1980, UMC provides advanced process technology and wafer manufacturing services to produce chips for various major applications in the IC industry.

Currently, the company has 12 wafer foundries, of which 4 are 12-inch wafer foundries, 7 are 8-inch wafer foundries, and one is 6-inch wafer foundries. In August last year, industry chain sources revealed that chip foundries, including TSMC and UMC, increased their 8-inch foundry quotations by 10%-20%.

In mid-January this year, foreign media quoted industry chain sources as reporting that UMC is increasing the production capacity of its 12-inch wafer foundry to meet the needs of related process technologies, mainly to meet the capacity requirements of the 28nm process.

The company’s financial report released at the end of April this year showed that in the first quarter, the company’s wafer shipments and average prices increased.
