Technology Challenges to come for Electronic Supply Chain.
I came across the following article from one of our suppliers and thought it worth sending out as a special edition Newsletter, because the subject matter is very relevant to anyone planning to buy any electronic goods in the next 12 months.
The information in the article is a warning of the problems to come in obtaining all types of electronic goods, from printers, PCs, Televisions and Audio equipment, to name a few, but it could also roll on into such products as air conditioners, washing machines, security camera systems, even coffee machines, because everything now uses microchips in their control systems.
So, having read the article, my advice to anyone looking to upgrade or buy new equipment, you should do it now, before the supply chain is impacted too heavily here. There is no doubt the supply chain will be affected, it is just a question of when.
This full story does not seem to being picked up by the mainstream media so I would appreciate it if you would pass it on to anyone you think may be interested or may be affected.
Here is the full article with my thanks to NAS Australia who drew my attention to it:
