Supply Chain Management

Analyzing the Electronic Supply Chain (March 19-25)

27 February 2023

Consumers continue to demand new features and releases of their favorite electronics. But the electronics manufacturing industry is having trouble keeping up their end of the equation.

A confluence of factors has resulted in the well-known supply chain challenges plaguing this market. Aftershocks of the COVID-19 pandemic response are still felt. Foreign relations among major manufacturing and consumer economies are deteriorating. War in eastern Europe has impacted transportation and fuel supplies. Factories and distributors are facing labor shortages and inflation expenses.

As a result, major drivers of national economies — automobiles, electronics, petrol, airplanes, consumer goods — are scarce and expensive. And it is impacting how raw materials, components and commodities go from factory to finished product.

Here at Electronics360, we'll take a look at some of the effects of, and potential solutions to, an ongoing supply chain challenge that shows no signs of abating.
