The microchip shortage is not going away soon, and it’s affecting way more than cars

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Matthew McClellan has one piece of advice for anyone planning to buy a video game console for the holidays.

“Buy now,” he said from inside his store Forever Games.

Once the holidays arrive, “you’re going to see nothing on store shelves,” he said.

shortage of microchips and semiconductors is to blame, caused by the same supply chain issues that have hampered industries across the economy and impeded a fragile economic recovery.

Much of the reporting on the shortage focuses on car companies and computer makers, but the problem is trickling down to some of the smallest businesses too such as furniture and home goods.

Microchips are so ubiquitous, most would be surprised by the amount of household items sold at mom-and-pop stores that contain them. “Printers and phones have the same problem, they all require chips,” said Jeff Taubman, who owns Downtown Computers in Downtown Columbus, which sells electronic devices and provides technical support to businesses.

Factories that produce these key components were forced to close or work at limited capacity for months at the onset of COVID, and “increased demand for consumer electronics and automotive products caused a ripple effect throughout the entire supply chain,” said Paul Hong, a distinguished professor of supply chain management at the University of Toledo.

Adding to the stress on the supply chain, manufacturers don’t want to build new factories or increase production at existing ones, worrying that they’ll incur debt and unsold product once the supply chain returns to normal.

That means consumers and entrepreneurs shouldn’t expect the problem to go away.

“You’re most likely going to see continued out-of-stocks through at least the end of quarter two of 2022,” said Michael Levin, a professor of marketing at Otterbein.

Covid Outbreak Shuts Down Taiwan Factory and Production, Causing Further Disruption for the Chip Shortage

We buy excess electronic components

A cluster of Covid-19 infections at a factory in central Taiwan temporarily stopped operations at one of the world’s largest chip-testing companies, the latest sign of potential disruption to a technology supply chain already struggling from component shortages.

King Yuan Electronics Co. shut down its main plants in Miaoli County over the weekend and reported 182 confirmed cases as of June 5, according to Taiwan’s Centers for Disease Control. Most of those are among its foreign workers, including the factory floor staff. The government placed all 2,000 of its overseas workers, around 30% of its workforce, into 14-day quarantine, and the company has turned to temporary local workers to get its production lines running again at lower-than-normal production volumes.

Taiwan’s outbreak highlights the threat posed by the global technology supply chain’s reliance on a small number of key players. Taiwan’s chipmaking industry is a crucial supplier, and potential choke point, for companies across a wide array of sectors, from consumer electronics, to server farms to the auto industry.

Companies are already dealing with a chip shortage that has slowed production and shuttered whole automaking plants, prompting the U.S. and China to explore ways to boost their own domestic production.

While manufacturing data indicate Taiwan’s technology exporters have been little affected so far, a report by IHS Markit last week warned that Taiwan experienced severe supply chain delays in May as companies built out their inventories in an effort to protect themselves against raw material shortages and surging costs.

#Chipageddon Creates Soaring Profits For Chip Manufacturers

We buy excess electronic components

Welcome to 2021, #Chipaggeddon.

A new report shows that in the face of unprecedented demand, chip manufacturers are increasing the price of wafers, leading to exceptional revenues across the industry. A wafer is a thin slice of semiconductor, such as a crystalline silicon, used for the fabrication of integrated circuits and, in photovoltaics, to manufacture solar cells.

With electronics manufacturers around the world scrambling to secure components in the midst of a global shortage of semiconductors, chip factories are working at full speed – and seeing the benefits of such a sudden boom in demand. 

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, in effect, the demand for semiconductors has sky-rocketed. Companies deployed laptops and smartphones to their newly-remote employees, schools and universities brought learning programs online, and users stuck at home turned to tablets, games consoles and TVs to keep themselves busy during months of lockdown.

As a result, product manufacturers ramped up their demand for the semiconductors that power most modern-day electronic devices. The sales of semiconductors used in PCs, for example, jumped by more than 17% compared to 2019.   

In other words, foundries have been operating at their maximum capacity; yet they are still unable to fully meet the demand for chips, which has led to a global shortage of semiconductors that is now trickling down to industries ranging from automotive to home appliances. 

There is no sign of demand for semiconductors wavering in the next few months. The trend is likely to last for as long as additional capacity is needed to produce semiconductors – which isn’t expected to happen until at least the end of the year. TSMC, for one, has pledged $100 billion to boost capacity, but due to the complex nature of chip manufacturing, foundries will take some time to come online. According to analysis firm Gartner, semiconductor supply will only reach normal levels again from the second quarter of 2022 onwards.

Q1 Electronic Component Shortages On the Rise

In 2020, the global electronics industry endured unprecedented disruption due to the coronavirus pandemic. Ultimately, the sector proved resilient to the challenges presented by COVID-19 by helping the world embrace digitalization.

Unfortunately, a new crisis has already emerged in 2021: the worldwide semiconductor shortage.

The problem began in the auto industry, but the integrated circuit (IC) supply crunch quickly intensified, expanded and evolved into a global calamity because of the field’s interconnected nature.

Consequently, the supply crunch disrupted the operation of multiple leading auto manufacturers and personal electronics conglomerates. This worldwide shortage has left many companies scrambling to secure chip orders and seek new avenues of component procurement in the midst of the shortage. Request for quotes (RFQs) are at an all-time high right now as professional buyers look to negotiate pricing and availability to meet production timelines.

In response, chipmakers, foundries and government leaders alike are working aggressively to resolve the crisis and address its root causes to prevent related problems in the future.

Pandemic-related shortages are causing longer lead times, extended forecasts, and a litany of other supply chain disruptions in 2021 that have begun to restrict OEMs, contract manufacturers, and CMs with unexpected component shortages.

In addition to our qualified global vendor database, iBuyXS specializes in new, factory packaged surplus with newer datecodes. This means that when you see shrinking stock, longer lead times, and higher costs in your static distribution channels:

We have the stock, and at reasonable prices.

We utilize EPIC, Excess Placement and Inventory Control, to match one OEM’s surplus with another’s shortages and cost-savings opportunities, to create a higher return for the OEM with the excess, and a shorter lead-time for the OEM that needs it.
