However, this of course does not mean that production has returned to normal. Some factories will only work one shift per day. This is positive news for GM; “This is not a sign that the patient has gone through all the hardships and several weeks are needed before discharge from the hospital,” said Phil Amsurd, senior principal analyst at IHS Markit responsible for studying the chip market, stating that chip shortages still pose a greater threat, referring to General Motos. he said.
According to Amsurd, the fact that GM’s facilities will not close is a sign that the company is getting rid of some optional features and getting better at dealing with shortcomings by redirecting these chips to other uses.
Stating that the chip supply shortage has eased a little, Amsurd; He underlined that there are still bottlenecks in Asian background companies that break larger silicon wafers into separate chips and test and package them for distribution. Amsrud also noted that while automakers buy more silicon wafers from major chipmakers, companies have limited capacity to cope with overwhelming demand from the personal electronics and other industries.
Companies in Malaysia and elsewhere in Asia are having trouble keeping factories open as workers contract the novel coronavirus; However, Amsrud stated that this situation is relatively reduced in some places, “I would not remove COVID from the list until COVID was completely removed from the scene.” used the phrases.
Stating that at the moment an automobile manufacturer can only reach the finished chips after 52 weeks, that is, 1 year after placing an order, Amsrud drew attention to the prolonged delivery times and said, “This means that there is still uncertainty in the market. ” said. Chip shortages are expected to continue for most, if not all, next year; but there will be improvements throughout the year, according to Amsrud.
