According to Pat Gelsinger, the new Chief Executive Officer of Intel, the global shortage of global deficiency in many industries is likely to be resolved only in a few years. Part of Intel’s Chipp production should be umusted for the automotive industry, he explained in the interview with the US TV station CBS. In addition, Intel will invest less in stock budgets.
Intel uses some of its factories to increase production and fix the chip deficiency in the auto industry. The explained Gelsinger in the interview broadcast on Sunday evening. There will be at least a few months last until the load on the supply chains surprised at all, he fugged. "It will take a few years until we can catch up the increasing demand in all business areas", Said Gelsinger.
Demand for semiconductors rose in 2020, as consumers and companies during the pandemic needed new computers and electronic devices. But, among other things, due to downshoused production, it was difficult to water the increased demand. Companies around the world expect the supply chain to continue to be imprinted due to logistic chip random and chip knob for a coarse part of the year 2021.
US government wants to support
The global crisis has catapulted semiconductor companies in the limelight and to the top of political agendas. Last month, the new US government informed the companies involved in the semiconductor market that he has survivor support for government funds to remedy the bottleneck.
Gelsinger said the dominance of the US in the industry is so much shrunk that today only 12 percent of global semiconductor manufacturing takes place in the United States. 25 years ago there were still 37 percent. Intel is the only manufacturer of high-end chips in the US, he said against CBS.
"And everyone who looks at the supply chain says: That’s a problem", he said. "This is a rough, critical industry, and we want more on American soil – the workplaces we want in America, the control over our long-term technological future."
Less stock purchase
On the question of how much Intel has spent in comparison of its investments in research and development for the purchase of own shares, Gelsman explained that his company will not focus on its share-related program as before. In the first quarter of this year, when Intel has surpassed its own forecasts thanks to strong notebook demand, the company gave nois Reuters 2.3 billion US dollars for equity purchase.
The supply sengates make a wide range of industries, where technology companies and automakers report equally dowy production roots and losses. It has forced the entire auto industry to reduce production. Ford has said according to CBS that the chip deficiency will probably reduce production this year by 1.1 million vehicles. In Marz, a Czech Toyota plant stopped production due to the chip man.
TSMC is more optimistic
Mark Liu, Chairman of the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) explained in this context to CBS in this context, his company tried to get out as many chips as possible for automotive companies after it had experienced late last year from closing fun. "Today we think that we are two months ahead to fulfill the minimum requirements of our customers by the end of June", he said.
Nevertheless, the supply must be fixed until the end of this year or early 2022. "There is a time delay", Liu said. "Especially with autochips, the supply chain is long and complex."Liu also contradicted the remarks that US companies are too reliant on Asian suppliers. "This is not about Asia or not Asia, as it depends independently from the production site to delivery", he said. "Because it is at Covid."
