Chip wait times hit record 21 weeks – Bloomberg

The amount of time it’s taking for chip-starved companies to get orders filled stretched to 21 weeks in August, reports Bloomberg, indicating the shortages that have crippled car production and held back growth in the electronics industry are getting worse.

The report pointed out that Chip lead times increased by 6 days to about 21 weeks in August from the previous month, according to research by Susquehanna Financial Group. That was already the longest wait time since the firm began tracking the data in 2017.

While lead times for ADI and Broadcom chips got worse, there are positive signs for power management chips and optoelectronic components, Susquehanna analyst Chris Rolland said in a research note.
