 Cost of Electronic Components from Japan Will be Steep Post March 11
The earthquake in Japan on March 11th has caused unimaginable disruptions in power supply and problems in transportation of products.

Due to this, there may be a shortage of electronic components and the prices of such components may also be steep.

Japan is also the world's largest supplier of silicon, used to make semiconductors; and the recent quake has affected the pricing of components like NAND flash memory chips.

Toshiba Corp. (6502), which makes flash-memory chips has stopped operations in five factories due to power shortages.
