Chip manufacturing equipment lead times rise again – Intel

semiconductor manufacturing

Intel CEO, Patrick Gelsinger, said in an interview recently that the chip shortage is expected to continue until 2024, and the delivery time of chip production equipment has been significantly extended.

Gelsinger pointed out that the shortage of semiconductors has also caused a shortage of advanced chip manufacturing equipment, which may slow down the expansion of global chip production capacity.

Gelsinger said lead times for chip-making equipment at the new fab have stretched considerably. He believes that the most critical factor for expanding production capacity at present is the supply of chip manufacturing equipment.

According to SemiMedia, Peter Wennink, CEO of the giant semiconductor supplier, ASML Holdings, recently said in an earnings call that ASML continues to see unprecedented demand for advanced and mature chip manufacturing technologies from customers across all market segments. ASML is a Dutch multinational which specialises in the development and manufacturing of photolithography systems used to produce computer chips.
