Price and lead-time visibility for 404,000+ form, fit or function alternative MPNs
IHS Markit is tracking the market for various electronic components, including ceramic capacitors, resistors and other discrete semiconductors, for which inventory is very tight. The MLCC and resistor markets, for example, are tighter than they have been in almost 17 years with big quarterly price increases in 2017 and 2018. The lead time for many components now extends past 52 weeks. With no relief in sight, it’s time to rethink how you manage your components.
Our Component Price Landscape (CPL) solution helps you keep pace with availability and pricing for the components you use. Through a unique combination of contract pricing, lowest distributor pricing and lead times, the CPL delivers lead time and pricing forecasts for 42,000+ manufacturer price numbers (MFNs), representing 404,000+ components that are used in a wide variety of electronic devices.
