How Long Will the Automotive Semiconductor Shortage Last?

Semiconductor market shipments up, but power semiconductors in short supply due to increase in EVs



  The semiconductor market continues to grow on a global scale, and Japan as well has been active in attracting and investing in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (TSMC), including government-led efforts to attract TSMC factories to Japan. Nevertheless, the shortage of semiconductors has shown no signs of being resolved since it began to be recognized as a problem in early 2021. Why is this situation protracted and when will this problem be resolved? This report discusses developments in the semiconductor industry as a whole and their impact on the automotive industry.
