Forbes: brace for 12-15 months supply-chain interruptions and beware counterfeit components

“Supply chain disruptions and component shortages continue to play an outsized role in our economies,” begins Forbes. “We all feel their impact at the ‘microeconomic’ level: reduced availability and delayed deliveries for a range of goods from automobiles to electronics; rising and more volatile costs for construction materials impacting the real estate industry.”

“The message from the front lines sounds loud and clear: don’t trust the economists’ sanguine view, and brace to withstand the impact of these disruptions for the next 9-15 months. The industry players surveyed by SCOOP paint a vivid picture of the challenges: production planning becomes a lot more complex, with the impending risk of stoppages; quality control becomes even more important as more counterfeit parts find their way into the ecosystem. Margins come under stress as prices of parts and raw materials rise.”
