Chinese passive components makers revving up MLCC capacity expansion

Chinese makers of passive components have been keen on capacity expansions for high-end MLCC capacitors, providing lucrative business opportunities for Taiwan’s equipment makers, according to industry sources.Judging from equipment shipment pull-ins in the first half of 2020, investments by Chinese passive components makers are at least five times as much as those by their Taiwanese peers, aiming to better tap demand for 5G base station, handset and new energy vehicle applications, the sources said.
