As the first quarter of 2022 has come to an end, we can observe that the market conditions in our industry are remaining hard and unpredictable.
The ongoing crisis are not yet over, and we are now sure that tensions on the leadtimes – and as a result – inflation of the prices are here to stay in the semiconductors, but not only.
Also, there are some important actions to be taken at all levels to insurre that the supply chain is safe. First, we assume that having a dual strategy in terms of electronic components purchasing is a Must : you need some well placed backlog business such as a good partner for Spot Buys. Alantys pretends to be both in one ! We support you with our 35 franchised lines, such as locate stocks and mitigate from quality risks with our Heavy Quality Standards and our wolrdwide sourcing thanks to our 12 locations around the globe !
The demand is still at high levels worldwide, and the wafer fabs are still struggling to meet the demand. Some key manufacturers of MCUs and FPGAs are already announcing over 1 year leadtime and heavy delays on the backlogs.
This situation could be worst in a few months because of the ongoing War in Ukraine, as some key Gas for Wafer fabs may be on shortage soon.
Also, the worldwide freight forwarder prices and availabilities are still at tight levels, and this is also keeping an impact of price structure of any component. Today, most manufacturers of electronic components have at least part of their product portfolio impacted by the above.
More than ever, it’s time to built a strong and efficient supply chain strategy that does not rely on a single channel.
We, at Alantys, are here to help you mitigate any kind of risks and give you fresh market data so that you can make your choices with updated market data.
