The foundries are increasing their prices because it’s becoming more expensive for them to fund their growing operations. The chemicals used in chip manufacturing have increased 10-20 percent, as per the report. Similarly, the labor required to build new semiconductor facilities has also seen shortages and increased wage rates.

Samsung is set to increase its chipmaking prices by up to 20 percent, according to a Bloomberg report last Friday.
