Gadget gifting may get costly this holiday season as supply chain plays The Grinch

(Reuters) - Shoppers could be looking at an expensive Christmas as supply chain snafus force companies to make and deliver their latest higher margin electronic gadgets to market faster, leaving fewer cheaper options to put under the tree.

Top electronic brands are using their best resources to navigate a chip shortage that has curtailed the production of goods across pricing ranges because of logistic issues, a tight labor market and closed factories due to pandemic lockdowns in parts of Asia.

Various websites are showing that cheaper products have longer wait times for delivery, while expensive items are available sooner.

"If vendors choose which device models they want to manufacture when they have limited access to chips then they'll generally go to the higher end, as they can better maximize their profits," ABI Research analyst Filomena Iovino said.

Apple Inc and Microsoft Corp have hoisted bright red banners on their websites telling online shoppers to get their holiday presents for delivery as soon as possible on some of their newer, more expensive products.

An $800, 11-inch iPad Pro can be delivered as soon as Nov. 17, but the cheaper and newer $330 entry-level iPad could take nearly a month or more.

Similarly, a $1,759 Hermes Apple Watch 7 will reach customers by early December, but the $400 Apple Watch will take longer.

Samsung will also ship the latest $1,900 Galaxy Z Fold a week sooner than the $1,200 S21 Ultra. Both are loaded with the latest 5G chips.

Qualcomm Inc, which makes high-end 5G-enabled chips for Apple and many top Android phones, said its customers were focusing on the premium and high-tier devices.

"Since there are less of the cheaper phones, the cheaper phones aren't going to be as discounted as we normally see," said Runar Bjørhovde, an analyst with research firm Canalys.

While global smartphone shipments declined due to component shortages in the third quarter, strong shipments of mid-to high-end smartphones drove record third-quarter revenue of over $100 billion, according to Counterpoint https://bit.ly/3GR95ES.

Smartphones are expected to be priced at an average of $410 this holiday quarter, up from $376 in the prior quarter and $395 last year. Average selling prices of laptops are expected to jump 8% to $830 for the holiday quarter, according to IDC.

GoPro Inc, which last quarter shifted production to focus on high-margin action cameras, said earlier this month that consumers were buying cameras at the top end of its line-up priced more than $300.

Even laptop makers, who rely on factories in Asia for a majority of their components, have shifted production of the cheaper 11" Chromebooks to higher-end 14" and 15" variants, IDC analyst Bryan Ma said.

"It works during a supply-constrained environment since consumers don't have any other choice ... So when supply eventually catches up to demand, manufacturers can put more production toward lower-end products to appeal to more price-sensitive users," Ma said.
