Component prices fall 25 per cent annually

Supply regularly outstrips demand

PC component prices will continue to fall significantly, Dell CFO Tom Meredith has warned. Speaking at the 26th SG Cowen Annual Technology Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, Meredith said that capacity is still ahead of demand, pushing prices way down. In fact, he added, even when demand meets supply, components are becoming 25 per cent cheaper every year. "We do not see any firming of pricing at Dell in the component front," Meredith said.
