AMD CEO, Lisa Su, said the other day that
chip shortage will remain tight in 1H/2022. It will ease off in the 2H.
The problem is that some companies are stockpiling chips to profit from the shortage.
On top of that, many automobile chips are made in Taiwan (e.g. TSMC) and Malaysia.
There is very few COVID cases in Taiwan (actually 0 for past week). Their production has been in full speed/capacity.
Not so with Malaysia.... Production was disrupted on and off.
Stockpiling is the main reason that US Government has asked chip producers like TSMC to provide customer data (in a voluntary survey) so that US can find out who is stockpiling chips. You can guess that many of the stockpilers are not from a country that is friendly to USA.
