Shortage of computer chips will last another year

The shortage of computer chips will continue for at least another year.

While it was expected at the beginning of this year that the shortage of computer chips would last another six months , this has now turned into a year. According to TSMC, a Taiwanese manufacturer, it will certainly take until well into 2022 before it is resolved.

The company is the world's largest independent supplier of semiconductors. Car manufacturers should receive more chips from next quarter, according to CEO Wei. However, the fundamental shortages will continue at least this year and perhaps until 2022.

TSMC is not the only manufacturer to warn that the shortages are not over yet. Foxconn and the German group Continental have also spread similar messages. The reason for this is the insatiable demand for smartphones and game consoles, among other things. In addition, there is also a great need for data center servers, thanks to the developments in the cloud.
