Industry sources reporting to Nikkei Asia paint a somewhat gloomy picture of current and future electronics supply. Chip manufacturers trying to expand their production capacities are faced with increasingly longer delivery times of up to 18 months. The latency of semiconductor manufacturing equipment directly affects consumer hardware.
This is bad news for both consumers and semiconductor foundries like Intel and TSMC. As a result, consumer electronics will hit the shelves much later. Before the industry could recover from the effects of the COVID-19 epidemic, the war between Russia and Ukraine gave way. On the other hand, the demand for technological devices continues to increase rapidly. While the number of so-called “smart” devices is increasing, the amount of components used is increasing step by step.
Supply issues in the semiconductor industry have greatly impacted the price and availability of the hardware we want to buy. Some foundries such as Samsung, TSMC and Intel have announced billions of dollars of investment to expand their capacity. The problem is that capacitance increases require enormous amounts of semiconductors. So in order to increase production in the future, it is necessary to constrain today’s supply. Another issue is the lack of sufficient number of professionals in the field.
Additionally, şirkedollarser prefers to prioritize some of its products as long as there are supply constraints. For example, şirkedollarser has much higher profit margins in areas such as servers, data centers and supercomputers. As a result, production constraints remain in many products such as entry or mid-level processors, display cards, yellow.
