Estimating the impact on your industry

When analyzing the automotive industry you can filter the search by Content Type (Industry analysts) and Sectors (Electronic Component). Here we find a list of authoritative reports estimating the impact of the shortage and how long it will last.


Another way to find data and estimations is by using the smart insights “Forecast” filter. Here you can access all the experts forecasts on the market for the coming months and years.


According to the latest figures available, we can see that the automotive industry is still impacted. This will continue to be the case until at least 2022 and the sector is forecasted to lose 110 billion in sales in 2021.

The bottom line

As countries open up and the global economy is recovering, the demand for semiconductors will continue to increase. However, based on the current shortage and the contributing factors, the global semiconductor shortage is expected to continue for the foreseeable future with numerous industries being impacted. 

One solution is to increase regional autonomy to protect local manufacturers reliant on a secure semiconductor supply chain. By following Intel’s example and investing heavily, Europe and the U.S. can safeguard themselves against future chip shortages but in the short term the overdepance on East Asia and a few players will continue. Monitoring will be key to understanding what’s coming next in your industry and to make the best decision to remain competitive.
