Increasing supply bottlenecks for EMC components
After initial stagnation to the point of economic standstill, the pandemic again led to an enormous surge in demand. However, fragile global supply chains across the board have also been slowed during the pandemic, whether by Corona, fires at Renesas' semiconductor plant in Japan, or the problem of the "Ever Given" in the Suez Canal. Container ships from other economies are finding it difficult to meet the increased volume and demand for products. Not only raw materials are currently in extreme demand, but also complete intermediate products, some of which are produced outside Europe. The restart of the economy has therefore now led to enormous supply bottlenecks.
We are also affected by this. Our suppliers of high-quality EMC products and components can hardly meet the increased demand. As a result, long delivery times have to be planned in some cases. We currently have to wait up to 8 months for some supplier products. Please check your stocks and requirements for the next months and make sure to order in time.
Also, make sure to check the currently valid prices, which will probably increase due to the ongoing situation.
We are looking forward to your inquiry.
