Escassez de chips ameaça indústrias
March 29, 2021 -
Mais de 80% dos semicondutores do mundo provêem de Taiwan ou da
Coreia do Sul. Devido à pandemia, esta dependência levou a escassez
global, ameaçando a produtividade de algumas indústrias chave e ao aumento das tensões entre as grandes economias mundiais para obter os valiosos microchips.
The biggest of the semiconductor foundries, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, alone accounts for 70% of all the microcontrollers in the automotive industry, which itself makes up only 3% of TMSC’s revenue.
When carmakers reduced orders in anticipation of lower demand during the pandemic, manufacturing capacity was diverted to more profitable sectors such as online data centres, mobile phones and consumer electronics, leaving the auto industry now facing huge losses.
