Automakers stop conveyors around the world


Car concerns are stopping again the production - it's all to blame for the shortage of microcircuits, which has been going on for almost a year. Recall that in 2020, the global production of semiconductors fell significantly due to the pandemic, and by the beginning of 2021 it did not keep pace with the sharply increased demand.

As a result, the shortage of chips remains to this day, and without them, instrument control panels, multimedia systems and navigation will not work in a modern car, the Kommersant newspaper writes. So, the last week Volvo stopped a plant in Sweden for seven days, and Nissan will not produce cars at a plant in the United States until September. Another Japanese company, Toyota, may cut the production by 40% from planned in September.

The European supplies of the concern will decrease by about 40 thousand vehicles. The shortage of chips brought to a shortage of the cars themselves, also in the Russian market, and some models came in a simplified configuration. Meanwhile, chip makers could not make the colleagues from the automotive industry happy yet. According to the forecast of the Singapore-based company Flex, which ranks the third on the planet in the production of microcircuits, the world will lack semiconductors for at least another year. And with high demand, the problem with the components for electronics will be solved only in mid- end of 2022.
