Shin-Etsu would seem to be tipping its toes back in the water over gauging the ‘interest’ from 300mm wafer customers over price increases as demand fell rapidly as IC Manufacturers cut production levels to offset an inventory build due to the global economic crisis. According to Reuters, Shin-Etsu is in talks with customers to raise 300mm wafer prices by 30 to 40% in respect to a recover in demand.
