Shortage Electronic Components

In a volatile and unpredictable market, component shortages are a huge risk for suppliers and manufacturers.

The amalgamation of events in recent years has led to factory closures and supply chain delays. Despite many fabs due to open in the future, the supply chain will take time to recover.

Lead times have risen to unprecedented levels, some reaching years into the future.  Semiconductors, capacitors, and electromechanical components all have potential lead times that reach into plus of 52 weeks.

Component prices are also continuing to rise, leaving manufacturers swimming against the tide when they are working with a budget.
