Global panic: MLCC hit!Prices or skyrocketing!
Filipinos are evacuating.However, a more immediate disaster is not ruled out. Authorities say the earthquake was so strong that the surrounding area could crack and even cause the ground to sink before a major eruption.
Stocks are also low, and a few months of volcanic activity could lead to a sharp rise in mid-range MLCC prices, which have been extended from 45 days to 90 days.Markets are keeping a close eye on this week’s volcanic changes and related scientific reports.
The sudden volcanic eruption has set off alarm bells downstream of MLCC, causing traders who are highly sensitive to prices to immediately stock up, while samsung motor, the company with the highest production capacity, has been inundated with customer calls the day before, concerned about MLCC’s shipment progress。
