Asian lockdown creates global MLCC capacitor shortage

A significant shortage of Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) is forecast by market analysis firm, TrendForce, as the result of the extended lockdown in Malaysia.

A number of Japanese and Taiwanese suppliers have passive component factories in Malaysia including Taiyo Yuden, NDK, Epson, Panasonic, and Walsin Technology and these firms have already had their lead-times disrupted, TrendForce said.

This will have an significant impact on smartphones, notebook computers, networking products, server computers and 5G base stations, mirroring the chip shortage in the automotive industry that has closed car plants.
