The world’s manufacturing sector has largely ground to a halt due to the on-going disruptions to global supply chains. International travel restrictions and seismic shifts in demand and supply due to the Coronavirus pandemic has left dents in our highly globalised distribution networks. In many markets, this has led to dramatic reductions in supply. Burdened by a complex manufacturing process, is the semiconductor or integrated circuit (IC). Global shortages in ICs have decimated the supply chains of many key industries, with the poster-boy of this semiconductor crisis being the automotive industry. Industry analysts believe that the shortages will affect automotive production for at least two years.
