Nikkei Asia: automotive chips are still in short supply


Semiconductor supply equilibrium is not expected to ease until the third quarter of 2023, but the shortage of automotive chips and some industrial chips may continue throughout the year, says Nikkei Asia.

The report pointed out that the oversupply of smartphone chips is not expected to ease until the fourth quarter of this year; personal computer chips are expected to peak in the third quarter and then gradually ease; data center chips may last until the first quarter of this year.

In contrast, the automotive industry still faces semiconductor shortages, even with shorter lead times for some products.

Increased production by automakers coupled with the rising number of semiconductors required per vehicle has boosted demand for chips in the auto industry, the report said.

The report believes that by 2023, the supply of power semiconductors for controlling current and analog semiconductors for power management will remain tight. Some major automakers have also said that parts supply will not return to normal until 2024.
