Copper prices are soaring and inductance is difficult to increase
 Copper wire is the core material that makes up the inductance and Transformer. Therefore, the trend of copper price is directly related to the cost of inductance production. The first increase in copper price, the production cost paid by the inductor factory also increases, which also means that the corresponding profit of the manufacturer will be reduced. In order to guarantee profit, the most direct and effective way is to increase the price of inductance. But is it really that easy to raise the inductance price?
Copper prices skyrocketed and the cost of inductance production was high
Copper prices began to rise last year, starting at the beginning of the year with a slight drop, according to the metal market, and have been soaring since around April this year. So far, spot copper prices have risen to 47 yuan per kilogram. The lowest price also remained at around 43 yuan, compared with an average of 32 yuan in the same period last year, and copper prices rose by about 50 %. Become the most direct factor that inductor factory production cost rises.

How much longer can the inductor hold out when profits are down?

The price of copper wire and other inductive materials has skyrocketed, and the price of inductance has become difficult. Many inductive manufacturers in Dongguan and Shenzhen have fallen into the dilemma of sharply reducing profits. Some stronger manufacturers have introduced more automated inductive production lines to reduce labor. cost. Some inductive manufacturers use the method of breaking the wrist to stop the production line of inductive products that require a large number of artificial participation, such as small magnetic ring inductors, products that are automatically produced such as patch inductors and ring inductors.
Inductive manufacturers said that the sudden increase in inductance will be a great blow to the business, and the suspension of high-cost businesses is also a last resort. The main reason is that the more orders for such products, the heavier the burden on the manufacturers. Under the premise that the factory can not save money, either the price is raised or the business is stopped. It is reported that some products of many manufacturers have already stopped picking up orders.
   If copper wire and other inductive materials continue to rise in price and inductance prices can not be raised, how long can these inductive manufacturers struggling on the survival line survive?
For long-term customers, manufacturers have begun to coordinate inductance price increases, but it is estimated that it will take a long time to obtain customer approval. If there is no agreement on the inductance price at that time, the cooperation between the inductor and the customer may face termination.
