More information about the global supply chain shortages

A computer chip, also called a semiconductor or integrated circuit, is a series of electronic circuits printed onto a conducting material, usually silicon. They form the physical building blocks used to make computers and run software. A modern car has more than a hundred components that contain semiconductors, and can be found in example car seats, rear-view mirrors and systems in the chassis.

The demand for semiconductors is at record levels due to a boost in demand for computer gear and other electronics in combination with trade barriers and high demand for new cars with many electronic features. This has contributed to a global shortage of semiconductors that affects many industries.

The global car and electronics industries are impacted by the shortage of semiconductors and so are we. We have temporarily adjusted production in most of our manufacturing sites to adapt output to the supply situation. The purpose of these temporary actions is to stabilize the situation and, together with our suppliers, ensure that we can resume full production as soon as possible.

We are working closely with both suppliers and logistics partners to minimize the impact and secure supply for all our plants globally.

The demand for computer gear and other electronics powered by semiconductors – including the latest high-tech cars – is at record levels. This demand is combined with ongoing global supply chain shortages, which are currently affecting many industries. 

We are working closely with both suppliers and logistics partners to minimise the impact and duration of the shortage and secure supply for all our plants globally.
