the shortage of semiconductors should fade

An exploded view of the LG G5.

High-tech and traditional industry have suffered in recent months from the lack of electronic components. According to some studies, the worst has been avoided. The Strategy Analytics firm even believes that we are heading for a slight improvement!

Strategy Analytics thus predicts an upcoming alleviation of the shortage of semiconductors for wireless telecommunications. Strategy Analytics’ latest report, “The Impact of the Semiconductor Shortage on Wireless Telecommunications,” claims that this market has escaped the worst effects of the shortage.

Significant shortages avoided

He even estimates that the production of semiconductors intended for cellular infrastructure equipment will still make it possible to avoid major shortages in the future. Additionally, chip availability for Wi-Fi hotspots and cell phones will continue to improve throughout next year, according to a statement.

According to Christopher Taylor, Director of RF & Wireless Components at Strategy Analytics and author of the study, shortages will gradually ease by the end of 2022 to 2023 as new foundry capacity is added. put into service. Significant efforts are underway around the world.

Important investments

China has thus increased its semiconductor production by more than 17% in 2021, and the production expansion will accelerate, which will help ease the global shortage. Investments in the United States, European Union, South Korea, India and other countries will also start to pay off by 2023.

Despite some effects still linked to Covid-19 in some countries, better control of the pandemic should reduce its effects by the end of 2022. This will contribute to the expansion of the production of semiconductor factories and electronic devices. electronics, according to Stephen Entwistle, vice president of strategic technologies at Strategy Analytics.

Still, some smartphone models are terribly desired, in Switzerland too!
