全球芯片短缺的问题影响深远,不光是一般的手机、电脑零件,汽车也业界也饱受其害,彭博社报道指褔特、BMW、本田三大车厂都因此需要实施不同程度的减产:褔特美国厂房将会在余下的财政季度减产一半;本田日本宣佈他们将会暂停国内三家工厂 3 至 6 个月;宝马就是警告会延迟德国和英国厂房的生产。

芯片供应首先是因为新冠疫情影响生产,后来再因为各产业的高度需求而再添压力。特别是车厂们都在今年开始加强自驾车、电动车等的发展,让晶片需求大增。据纽约时报的报道,保时捷美国已经通知美国的经销商,车子要多等 12 星期才能交付。

芯片短缺问题严重影响整个科界行业,多个品牌,包括苹果三星在发布亮丽成绩单的同时,都预告下季的表现都定必会受到芯片短缺影响,因此各界都在想方设法的舒缓问题。
