According to supply chain, AVX has sent a letter to customers at the end of last month to inform it that it will temporarily increase the price of TAJ and TLJ series tantalum capacitors.

Regarding the reasons for the price increase, the source said it was mainly due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on AVX's production facilities and logistics, which caused its output to fail to meet the rising demand.

The following are the details of the price increase:

TAJ/TLJ A Case: Price rises by 20%

TAJ/TLJ B / C / D / E: Price rises by 20%

TAJ P/R: Price rises by 20%

TLJ P/R: Price rises by 20%

The supply chain further pointed out that the price increase is temporary and is only valid from May to the end of September this year.
