DVD Disc Prices Set to Jump 10%


Leading manufacturers of optical discs in Taiwan plan to raise quotations for DVD+R/-R discs by an average of 10% next quarter.

Although any increase in their gross margins, the increasing cost of optical-grade polycarbonate (PC) to US$3.5 per kilogram (kg) is expected to affect the retail price of the media, as Digitimes reports.

After hovering for several months at a record-high price of US$3.5/kg, the price of optical-grade PC dropped to US$3.2-3.3/kg in April of this year. However, the price has recently pushed back up to US$3.5/kg, as Benzene, an important material for PC production, has seen its price jump on rising oil prices, the sources explained.

In related news, optical-disc makers CMC Magnetics, Prodisc Technology, Gigastorage and Lead Data all recently stated that they will not deal out any dividends for their 2004 operation.
