Consultant for global IC chips shortage

We are a electronic specialist helping businesses to solve problems in the electronic industry.

Since year 2020 there has a global chip shortage trend. This is brought in by the Covid pandemic. Demand for electronics has massively increase. The semiconductor factories around the world has not been able to keep up with the global demand.

This chip shortage is projected to last till at least 2023. This boom in electronic demand is likely going to affect many electronic business. Sales will be affect and price of IC chips is likely having an upward pressure with the shortage.

Typically lead time of 3 months chip delivery has already increase to 12-24 months (as of 23rd Nov 2021). This long lead time is a big pressure to the electronic industry.

With panic buyers buying and hogging on to stocking up more electronics chip for their own use, or for their own profiting, this will even squeeze the market to an even higher demand. It is projected that this shortage situation is going to last at least till year 2023.
