More stable component availability and pricing are predicted to return to 85% of components by 2H 2023 with a few exceptions including programmable logic devices and some passives like automotive-specific resistors, according to a recent report by SupplyFrame.
The report reveals complexity, uncertainty, and unevenness persist: component availability has improved in large part, and prices across many commodities and sub-commodities have stabilised, but electronic component lead times remain longer than historical norms and the risk of new supply chain problems remains high.
“In this age of macroeconomic uncertainty, where it is becoming increasingly difficult to forecast demand amid mixed end-market signals, further intensification of the Russia-Ukraine war, continuing COVID-19 challenges in China or any number of other disruptions could emerge,” said Supplyframe CEO and founder Steve Flagg.
