Semiconductor shortages may be worsened by Russian invasion

The ongoing invasion of Ukraine by have implications for the chip shortage causing massive supply issues globally.

Ukraine exports around 90 percent of the industrial-grade neon gas used in the production of US semiconductors, while Russia exports around 33 percent of palladium required for electronic chips. 

“This will have an impact,” said Lita Shon-Roy, CEO and President of supply-chain analytics firm Techcet, to CNBC. “It will continue to constrain the chip source going into the automotive industry.” 

During the 2014 annexation of Crimea, prices of neon reportedly rose by 600 percent – and with strong financial and distribution sanctions currently being imposed on Russia by the EU and US, history is set to repeat itself.
