The global race for chips

The USA, China and Europe want to strengthen domestic chip production. Because nothing works in digitization without chips. All three actors also want to reduce geopolitical risks. The powers’ chances of success are very different – and all three will remain dependent on Taiwan and South Korea for the foreseeable future.

Most of the chips are made in Taiwan and South Korea.


A good $ 60 billion. So much money could missed by automakers, suppliers and dealers worldwide this year. And that’s only because the car manufacturers are missing a few tiny parts worth a few francs: chips. They are currently so scarce that a number of manufacturers from Ford to Volkswagen have had to partially stop their production. Laptops, smartphones, game consoles and printers are now also being delivered with a delay.
