MARKET UPDATES – 20.05.21

GENERAL OVERVIEW

  • Leading component manufacturers continue to announce extended lead times, some now out to 45 weeks +.

 

  • Lead-times are extending sharply with some vendors imposing allocation on certain lines, and prices in all areas are being raised, often with little or no notice. These supply chain risks require timely planning and action.

 

  • It is advised for customers to place order schedules out to at least Q2 2022 as lead times from most suppliers are moving out on all commodity types.
