Recently, the global chip industry is out of stock, leading to a large number of intelligent products out of stock, and even the automotive industry is in a deadlock. According to relevant media reports, it has been confirmed by industry companies, investment institutions and researchers,The industry is very worried about the current shortage of auto chips, which is expected to continue to the third quarter of this year.
According to the latest report of IHS Markit,The shortage of auto chips is expected to reduce global auto industry production by 1 million vehicles in the first quarter of this year,It's a lot more than the 672000 vehicles they expected at the beginning of the month, and they said the number is still likely to rise.
It should be noted that,The shortage of car chips not only affects the smart cars, but also the traditional cars,Ford, Nissan, Toyota, Honda and other well-known traditional car companies are affected to varying degrees.
It is understood that one of the main reasons for the big shortage of chips is COVID-19, which has affected many links from R & D design to manufacturing encapsulation, resulting in confusion in the whole chip industry.
In addition, it is not only automotive chips that will be affected. Previously, Xilinx, a global automotive chip manufacturing giant, disclosed that,The shortage of chips has gone beyond semiconductor manufacturing to other materials and components.
At present, there is not only a shortage of auto chips in the world, but also consumers will be trapped in the vortex of shortage and price increase in the next year.
