With the changing economic landscape and evolving consumer behavior, industries will continue their path of digital transformation. This means that the demand for semiconductors will increase. This prompts chipmakers and governments worldwide to work hard in closing the gap.

TSMC, the world’s leading semiconductor foundry, has pledged to invest $100 million to increase capacity over the next three years. Samsung and SK Hynix have teamed up with the South Korean government and spent $451 billion for the same venture.

Members of the European Union have their plans as well. The UK government is yet to reveal what they are precisely, but the idea is to help the local chip sector grow its capacity in their supply chains.

Both private and public sectors are determined to end the chip shortage. However, many challenges (policy making, local and international covid restrictions, etc.) need to be addressed before things get going.

Industry experts were optimistic at first, expecting the chip supply to recover by the end of 2021. Historically, demand for semiconductors declines every fourth quarter of the year, which should give chipmakers a chance to catch up.

That is not the case so far. It appears that the decrease in demand is not big enough for foundries to make a significant dent in the current imbalance.

They were forced to revise their initial opinion, and they now fear that the chip shortage could last until next year, maybe even until 2023.

Kingtronics International Company was established in 1995 located in Dongguan City of China to handle all sales & marketing for factories located in Chengdu, Sichuan and Zhaoqing, Guangdong, China. In 1990, we established the first factory to produce trimming potentiometer and in 1999 we built up new factory in Zhao Qing, Guangdong. Now with around 850 workers, Kingtronics produce trimming potentiometers, dipped tantalum capacitors, multilayer ceramic capacitors, and diode & bridge rectifier. We sell good quality under our brand Kingtronics, and Kt, King, Kingtronics are our three trademarks. All our products are RoHS compliant, and our bridge rectifier have UL approval. Please visit our Products page, you could please download all our PDF datasheet and find cross reference for our Trimming Potentiometer and capacitors.
