On the 6th, Zhao Haijun, CO CEO of SMIC
international, said that the increase in the company's gross profit margin in the second quarter mainly came from the increase of production capacity, product structure adjustment and price rise. Among them, the impact of price increase factors is about 9%. Zhao Haijun believes that at present, the capacity expansion and market delivery of semiconductor manufacturers are relatively slow, and the state of short supply will last until at least the first half of 2022. As the epidemic situation and international uncertainty still exist, prices are expected to continue to rise in the third and fourth quarters.
