Four trends identified in the component supply shortages

There have been four key trends in 2021 which are affecting the supply of electronic components, writes OEMSecrects in Electronics Weekly.

  • Semiconductors (diodes, ICs, and sensors) and passives (transistors, resistors, and multi-layer ceramic capacitor) have been the worst hit, with distributors displaying low stock levels with long lead times on additional stock.
  • A gradual increase in prices for products in various categories including microcontrollers, power converters, LEDs and connectors.
  • An increased shift of preference to touch input technology which has pushed up the demand for display devices as consumers prefer information in visual form.
  • The adaptation of IoT & Industrial IoT technology has increased demand for sensors and Wi-Fi components which have created opportunities for growth in industries like medical, automotive, industrial, security and aerospace, among others.
