The global chip shortage continues to spread: security prices rise 40%

2021-08-06

At present, the world is in a "chip shortage" period, and the situation is still worsening.

At the end of last year, the automobile and game console industries suffered from chip shortages, and the PC market was still unable to get processors, graphics cards and memory in the early part of this year, even though prices were skyrocketing.

In the face of chip "extreme" out of stock, the security industry has been affected.

According to media reports, the current delivery cycle of security products has been generally extended for about half a month, and downstream agents have appropriately increased their stock.

In September last year, a typical 2-megapixel camera cost 140 yuan, but now it costs 210 yuan, a company official said.

In addition, due to the epidemic, the housing economy has exploded, and the demand for chips in areas such as home appliances has surged in a short time.

At the same time, chip manufacturers have been slow to expand their capacity, squeezing shipments of chips in areas such as security and automobiles and pushing up prices.

Industry forecasts, the security industry chip shortage tide may continue in the short term.

It is understood that the main players in the domestic security chip market are Haisi, Fuhanwei, Xingchen technology and other enterprises, among which Haisi occupies about 70% of the security market share.

At present, the chip shortage has become a hot topic of discussion, TV, mobile phones, laptops, cars and other fields have lamented the chip shortage.

It is reported that the main reasons for the shortage are not only the impact of the epidemic, but also the overall recovery of consumer demand, customers temporarily add orders and smartphone manufacturers to expand production capacity.

It is worth noting that the news pointed out that the current semiconductor supply tension is the most in nearly 20 years, the history of the whole machine industry has never been so severely affected by the semiconductor supply tension.
