Why Tiny Microchips Are Crippling The Global Auto Industry And Driving Up Prices

  • Am Vor Monat

    CNBCCNBC

    While the automotive industry was ravaged early on in the pandemic thanks to lockdown measures and a dramatic decrease in travel, it more recently has begun facing a new problem: a shortage of microchips. Microchips are vital to much of a vehicle’s key functions, such as engine control, transmission, infotainment systems, and more.

    In the last half of 2020 and now in 2021, vehicle sales recovered fairly quickly, faster than automakers anticipated. Suddenly, they were struggling to meet demand. At the same time, chipmakers were experiencing supply shortages and increased demand from other sectors, such as personal electronics.

    With the resulting lack of microchip supply, automakers have been forced to slow production, even on their most popular models. For several automakers, the shortage is expected to cost them $1 billion or more - and even still, the alternatives are worryingly few.

Why?...............because the chips could be made cheaper in China, so all the US chip makers had to move operations to china or go out of business. letting enemy countries produce vital goods needed in America is stupid. never become dependent on any one country for anything.

One more thing we can say thanks Obama. That Cash for clunkers yeah you think it was for your benefit just like the Obama phone found out real fast that wasn't for your benefit. Is Big brother's babysitters. And what Obama did was get rid of all the older vehicles that did not have microchips in them and he put cement in all of the blocks and he had them crushed. So good luck trying to find a body or even now parts for let's say a 1991 Chevy regular old pickup truck. And I won't be the one standing up going we need more chipping we need cheaper microchips we need more of it . no I won't be om that bandwagon. Anything that's going to have that kind of capability will be put in there myself... Unless Obama wants to give me his and Michelle's IP number for their luxury vehicle and maybe the MAC address.
