The Neverending Chip Shortage
The global chip shortage continues to ravage supply chains all over the world.
Advanced electronics manufacturers are having trouble keeping up with demand. And I suspect that problem will only worsen as we settle into the holiday season.
Still, microchips can be found in many more products aside from advanced electronics…
Consumer electronics manufacturers, carmakers, and even home appliances companies are all feeling the pressure of the chip shortage.
So, how does this translate to the market?
For starters, there are a handful of chip makers pledging to put more investment into production to keep up with the growing demand.
Aside from that, some of the premier names in the semiconductor industry have been surging as a result of price premiums and shortened supply.
Companies like NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) and Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) have seen incredible performance while the world works to get itself out of this bottleneck.
On the flip side of this, there are also plenty of companies that stand to suffer until this shortage can get resolved.
Most obviously would be advanced consumer electronics manufacturers like I mentioned above.
But that’s not all…
Automakers, home appliance manufacturers, and more are all having trouble meeting production targets and earnings estimates.
In fact, many big-name automakers have had downright disappointing earnings results since the chip shortage started to affect supply chains.
Automakers across the globe are reporting falling revenue and missed production estimates.
So, when will it end?
Experts estimate that we might not be out of this bottleneck until 2023, potentially even later, so it becomes a toss-up on when this might end.
The fact is, the chip shortage isn’t going away anytime soon. So, it’s important to pivot and make this unfortunate situation work in your favor.
To a bright future,
