Chile Quake Could Shake Copper & PCB Prices

Last week’s earthquake in Chile, the largest producer of copper, could push electronics component prices higher as a result of a sustained surge in metal prices.(

Transport and electricity to the copper mines in Chile were halted after the 8.8 earthquake hit Saturday. (

Copper futures rose up to 6.2% on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the most in nearly a year. Whether prices stay higher will depend on the state of the mines, infrastructure and transportation, analysts say.

Operating profit for PCBs could drop up to 14% if copper prices were to increase 10%, says Yuanta Financial Holdings, and connector profits could drop as much as 30%.
