The shortage in chips, the “brain” within every electronic device in the world, has been steadily worsening since last year.

Chips are everything,” says Neil Campling, media and tech analyst at Mirabaud.

“There is a perfect storm of supply and demand factors going on here. But basically, there is a new level of demand that can’t be kept up with, everyone is in crisis and it is getting worse.”

The supply problems are as multifaceted as the nearly $500 billion semiconductor business.

Manufacturers turn silicon wafers to chips in complex processes using chemicals, gases and costly machines.

The shortage is going from bad to worse, spreading from cars to consumer electronics. With the bulk of chip production concentrated in a handful of suppliers, analysts warn that the crunch is likely to last through 2021.

According to Goldman Sachs, 169 US industries embed semiconductors in their products.

The bank is forecasting a 20% average shortfall of computer chips among affected industries, with some of the components used to make chips in short supply until at least this fall and possibly into 2022.
