NEW YORK: Some companies will need to get used to the global chip drought. Pandemic-led demand swings and trade wars have left factories short of microprocessors. The semiconductor industry's coming splurge on new capacity will benefit smartphone manufacturers and data centers more than automakers. Shortfalls are widespread. The $340 billion Nvidia hasn't been able to meet demand for graphics chips it designs for about half a year. Sony warned there may be shortages of games consoles this Christmas. Carmakers are facing a particularly severe squeeze because they canceled orders during the pandemic. General Motors says the chip shortage may slash its earnings by up to $2 billion this year, while Ford Motor estimates a hit to its bottom line worth as much as $2.5 billion. Chip shortages usually spawn subsequent gluts as manufacturers rush to meet demand, and investment is underway. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, the biggest chip contract manufacturer, plans to increase ... » Learn More about Chip shortages are here to stay, for some
