Shortages will last until Q2 2022 says Gartner

‘The foundries are increasing wafer prices and chip companies are increasing prices,” says Gartner’s Kanishka Chauhan.

The chip shortage started with PMICs, display drivers and MCUs, fabricated on legacy nodes at 8-inch foundry fabs, which have a limited supply.

The shortage has now extended to other devices, and there are capacity constraints and shortages for substrates, wire bonding, passives, materials, and testing.

Across most categories, device shortages are expected to be pushed out until the second quarter of 2022, while substrate capacity constraints could potentially extend to fourth quarter of 2022, says Gartner.
