The shortage of chips due to the impact of the epidemic is growing. Despite the gradual end of the quarantine process, things are getting worse. You can find the details in our news.
Since March 2020, the whole world has been facing the Covid-19 pandemic. During this 1-year period, we were quarantined many times, and a few times life seemed to return to normal. Of course, that goes for the whole world. In this process, almost all companies, factories, workplaces and more were negatively affected. Especially in the tech world, there are big problems with the chip, and these problems don’t seem to be going away.
Almost all sectors suffer from this issue due to the shortage of stock experienced by the PlayStation 5 on the gaming side, the shortage of graphics cards on the hardware side, the shortages experienced by tech giants such as Apple and Samsung, and chip shortages in the car industry. While graphics cards and next-generation consoles could not be found, companies such as Apple and Samsung also postponed phone launches. In the automobile sector, manufacturers have slowed production and many unfinished vehicles are waiting in parking spaces.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, there is a serious problem in chip production and therefore stock shortages continue. But for several months, the factories started working again. This was expected to slowly solve the chip shortage, but things are not going as expected, according to The Guardian.
According to The Guardian, things are getting worse due to the significant increase in demand for products such as computers, consoles and TVs during the quarantine process and the market change. Technology analyst Neil Campling said there was a new level of untraceable demand and everyone was getting worse. Chips are everything, Neil Campling said, adding that there was a crisis.
In recent months, new US President Joe Biden has said he will examine the situation behind these events, find out what caused it and take over.
