June is about to start the first wave of tariff hikes, although the parties in advance due to enter the state of readiness, but the impact of the industry is inevitable, Printed Circuit Board Association (TPCA) electricity Phase 3 hike on the market assessment,PCB industry profit of the high electricity derivative 3 ~ 5% impact, coupled with the upper reaches of the copper material prices go up, and rising costs form a major challenge for this year's PCB plant operation.
   The first quarter of this year have been a number of PCB plant into the red phase, or even only in the near loss level, operating a considerable degree of pressure, followed by the tariff hike will start a new wave of pressure. Reaction electricity costs, is expected intends to electricity price hike in three stages, the industrial use of electricity or fall 23 to 27 percent off-peak electricity consumption rose from 37.5 to 47.5 percent, the first wave hike in June implemented.
    TPCA believes that this major policy is bound to cause some degree of impact and market assessment of the tariff hike will have a large amount of electricity the PCB industry, resulting in a profit decline in three to five percent of the impact of Taiwan's electronics industry, including PCB is bound to put pressure on the part of the loss of the PCB plant.
    The leading PCB maker Unimicron the first quarter of France said the spreadsheet at the meeting, the PCB plant cost of electricity accounted for the proportion of about 3 ~ 5%, to Unimicron electricity plant in January about $ 100 million, if the tariff adjust up 10 percent, an increase of $ 10 million, now announced price increases caused by the cost increase may be higher, so the electricity price hikes are also planted for the 2nd quarter earnings variables.
   According to the survey shows that TPCA in March this year for 126 PCB industry executives economy estimates in the first half of 2012 compared to the second half of 2011, more than 55 percent of respondents believe that industry has a positive growth the main growth momentum is driven from the end product, but in June to implement the price hike policy, under the spread of the debt crisis of Europe, revised down economy estimate remains to be seen.
