Thanks to netizen OC_Formula for the clue delivery! news on December 7, comprehensive Taiwan media "Economic Daily", "Industrial and Commercial Times" and other reports, after Samsung reported a quarterly price increase of 20% in the first half of next year, Western Digital also recently issued a "price increase notice" to downstream access and contract factory customers as follows:

The pricing of mechanical hard disk products will be reviewed week by week and the quotation will be adjusted dynamically until the first half of next year.

The price of NAND flash memory will also rise in the coming quarters, possibly by as much as 55 per cent.

Western Digital also said that as the company is regulating production capacity in response to the market supply and demand environment at this stage, it is "difficult" to respond immediately to unplanned demand and orders, so customers need to check their order status again and contact the company for arrangements as soon as possible.

Reported that this "price increase notice" revealed that the upsurge in the price of NAND chips is "irresistible". Western Digital's NAND shipments began to rise in the third quarter, which has driven up revenue: revenue rose 13% to $1.556 billion ( Note: about 11.157 billion yuan) in the third quarter, according to TrendForce.

According to 's previous report, due to the impending factory closure of Lisenko Technology Co., Ltd. (formerly known as Joe Technology), a key supplier of mechanical hard drives, it is expected that the global price of mechanical hard drives will rise sharply in the future.

Lisenko Technologies Co., Ltd., a major manufacturer of thin films for mechanical hard drives, is headquartered in Japan and employs more than 25000 people. It is one of the few companies to produce thin films for HDD.

The factory in Taiwan is said to be "about to close". The factory was established in 1990, but with the changing trend of the industry, it is no longer competitive to produce hard drives in Taiwan, so Lisenko decided to close the factory and nearly 600 employees will be laid off one after another in three batches.
