Semiconductor firms report shortage of workers, prolonging chip woes to 2022

The ongoing semiconductor shortage shows no signs of easing up if a new industry survey is any indication, with a majority of companies planning for the silicon glut to extend into the second half of 2022.

The report, produced by IPC International, revealed that of the companies surveyed, only 10% reported that inventories from their suppliers were rising and that around four in five companies surveyed had difficulty finding the skilled labor they needed to improve production, and fully half of respondents reported “extreme difficulty.”
