Every aspect of the tech world is booming, and everything in the tech world needs chips. They are hard to make. How hard? It’s not rocket science. It’s much harder.
The supply shock is hitting industries from automotive to appliances and everything in between. China, the world leader in chip production, is working its way toward chip independence. The Biden Administration understands the issues and has said publicly that it is committed to reviving domestic manufacturing to secure the American supply chain. That’s a great long-term solution, but it’s not going to help with the current shortages, which look like they will get worse before they get better. If your business depends on a supply of chip-enabled goods or services, it’s time to make a plan.
