Even Young Liu also predicts that in the second quarter of 2021, chip components will experience an increasingly severe scarcity compared to the first quarter of 2021.

Scarcity of chip components for this electronic circuit, will cause product scarcity due to insufficient inventory or sold out when spare parts are made.

According to Young Liu, besides the impact of the scarcity of these chips, spare parts including semiconductors and display drives for electronic products are becoming scarce.

This is because these two components are widely used in consumer products, such as smartphones and tablets that are marketed.

Foxconn itself is a manufacturing partner Apple, and the scarcity of these chips can have an impact on iPhone 13 which is rumored to be released this year.
