Wartezeit auf Mikrochips erreicht Rekordhöhe
September 23, 2021 - Firmen die Halbleiter dringend benötigen, müssen bis zu 21 Wochen warten. Das bremsst die Nach-Pandämie Erholung der Wirtschaft, vor allem in der Automobilindustrie, die mit einem Verlust an Verkäufen in Höhe von $110Mrd rechnet.
Chip shortages that have hampered growth in the electronics industry, and by extension many other industries, are getting worse. Lead times for semi-conductors reached 21 weeks in August, the worst ever recorded, which has been particularly damaging for the automotive industry. Carmakers have been revealed as especially vulnerable to supply issues, and their expected recovery after the Covid-19 pandemic looks set to fall short by around 3.9 million vehicles in production, worth an estimated $110 billion in lost sales.
