The dependence of leading global semiconductor manufacturers on raw materials–palladium and neon–sourced from Russia and Ukraine, respectively, could prolong the global semiconductor crisis and even indirectly impact device manufacturers with a delay in supply of critical parts, say industry experts.
“There are so many levels of dependencies in the semiconductor industry. Like Taiwan, both Ukraine and Russia play pivotal roles in the global semiconductor supply chain. Now, if you are sourcing components primarily from Russia, your supply chain is on. But, if you are sourcing a lot from Ukraine, then you will see disruption,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, chief executive of market research firm Greyhound Research.
Gogia explained for countries that are largely drawing supplies from Taiwan and Russia should not face an impact in the short term. However, companies that import chips from manufacturers that do source raw material from Ukraine will face serious impact.HT Mint
