Due to the raging coronas virus epidemic, the entire electronics industry has been under tremendous pressure this year. The sluggish consumer market demand and the suspension of production and factory closures caused by the "closure of cities" in various countries have seriously affected the development of the industry, and the market prices of various components have been rising endlessly.

In the MLCC market, prices increased dramatically at the beginning of the year due to the dual factors of the epidemic and the Spring Festival holiday. In March, major MLCC production towns such as Malaysia and the Philippines were forced to "close the city", causing serious damage to the production capacity of Japanese and Korean manufacturers. At the same time, Yageo and other Taiwanese manufacturers benefited from raising their quotations.

Later then, major producing areas have been "unblocked" one after another, and MLCC supply and demand have gradually returned to balance. At the end of June, it was reported that Yageo took the initiative to lower its quotations by 20%, taking half the price increase in the first half of the year, in order to compete with Japanese and Korean manufacturers whose production capacity has largely recovered. In this regard, the MLCC market in the first half of the year, dominated by Taiwanese manufacturers, ended.

Paying attention to the demand side, the first half of this year was undoubtedly a hit. The sales of important applications including mobile phones, automobiles, and PCs all dropped significantly year-on-year. Although boosted by the "home economy", PC shipments recovered in the second quarter, but it is still difficult to withstand the general downward trend in consumption.

Looking forward to the second half of the year, the overall epidemic in China will be effectively controlled, Europe and the United States will be "unblocked" one after another, and the global demand for consumer electronics will recover. Based on this fundamental, Apple's 5G version of iPhone 12 will also be on sale in the second half of the year. With the general sales of new iPhone products in the tens of millions, the demand for MLCC and other components will surely be boosted.
展望下半年,中国疫情整体得到有效控制,欧美陆续“解封”,全球电子消费品的需求会有所恢复。而在此基本面之上,下半年苹果5G版iPhone 12也将发售。以iPhone新品普遍千万级别的销量,MLCC等各类元器件的需求必将受到提振.

According to reports from Taiwanese media late this month, the MLCC stocking wave will start in late August in the second half of the year, while in previous years it was between July and August. The reason is that this year’s iPhone 12 series has been delayed by the epidemic and will not be available until late October, and the most important 5G model will even have to wait until November. As a result, the stocking period of Apple’s supply chain is generally delayed, and the MLCC is not exception.
据台媒本月下旬的报道,下半年MLCC备货潮将于8月下旬启动,而往年则是在7月至8月间。究其原因,今年的iPhone 12系列受到疫情延误,要到10月下旬才能上市,而其中最重要的5G机型甚至要等到11月,由此苹果供应链的备货期普遍延后,MLCC也不例外.

At present, the largest supplier of Apple MLCC is Murata of Japan. In addition, Kyocera and Taiyo Yuden, both of which are Japanese, are also the main suppliers. Although Samsung Electric of South Korea also supplies Apple, the industry pointed out that its supply ratio has already reduce.

It is understood that the amount of passive components in 5G mobile phones will be 20-30% more than in the past, and several large Japanese factories sitting on the high-end position of Apple's supply chain will naturally benefit more. In addition, the Android camp will have more new 5G phones on the market in the second half of the year, when the demand for mobile MLCC will be driven by the overall.

At this stage, the inventory level of the MLCC market is lower than in 2018. Once the weak mobile phone market in the first half of the year recovers, it will inevitably stimulate more MLCC production capacity. On the other hand, the current global epidemic is still not improving, and the fundamentals of the "home economy" are still in place. At that time, applications such as PCs and servers will also attract a large number of MLCC demand.

In general, after the baptism of the first half of the year, the current situation of low inventory in the MLCC market requires the most attention. Once demand jumps in the second half of the year, there will be a tide of downstream replenishment, which will cause shortages and price increases. It is not surprising; if demand in the second half of the year remains unchanged, then the market will generally maintain a balance between supply and demand, and small price increases and small drops are possible.

In addition to the consumer electronics market, demand from the automotive sector is also deeply affecting the MLCC market. With the gradual unblocking of European and American countries, the global auto market has shown signs of recovery. Taiwanese media reports pointed out that some of Murata's MLCCs for automobiles are in short supply due to the recovery of the automobile market.

Regardless of the epidemic factor, and observing the general trend of the automobile industry, the rapid development of intelligent and electrified automobiles at this stage can attract more MLCC needs.

Statistics point out that the latest pure electric vehicle MLCC consumption has reached 13,000, and the next generation of autonomous vehicles is expected to reach 15,000, which is a huge increase compared with the current consumption of 1,000 ordinary fuel vehicles. This shows that the potential of the automotive MLCC market is no less than that of the consumer market driven by 5G.

From a market perspective, the current global automotive MLCC suppliers are Murata, Taiyo Yuden, and TDK, which have a high degree of overlap with Apple's supply chain. Looking forward to the second half of the year, it cannot be ruled out that the new iPhone materials and car materials will simultaneously set off a stocking tide, resulting in a situation of short supply.

Finally, looking forward to the MLCC market in the second half of the year as a whole, the two major applications of 5G-related consumer electronics and automobiles will play a decisive role. As for the specific market conditions, it still depends on the impact of epidemic fluctuations on public consumer demand, but overall, it should not be a great fluctuation , the market will have a greater chance of balancing supply and demand and prices rising and falling slightly.
