Volatility in commodity prices

Raw materials constitute the largest single cost component in the market for stage lighting fixtures and control solutions, amounting to approx. 40% to 60% of total production costs. The prices of key raw materials used in the production of stage lighting fixtures and control solutions, such as steel, aluminum, plastic and rubber, have increased significantly over the past few years. The volatility of commodity prices also seriously threatens the profit margins of sellers in the stage lighting market. Other operating expenses, such as labor wages, are also rising. Rising raw material costs further increased production costs by another band of 5% to 7%, narrowing profit margins. In addition to all these costs, Chinese manufacturers add more concerns to the company’s top line as they bring out cheap products. These factors burden vendors who strive to produce efficient stage lighting solutions at affordable costs to cope with the increasing competition in the market.
