How will the shutdown of many chip factories in Vietnam affect global semiconductors?

IT Home News, June 1 According to CCTV Finance, Southeast Asia is the world's main semiconductor chip packaging and testing center. Recently, the epidemic situation in Vietnam, Malaysia, and other countries have deteriorated, which is very likely to exacerbate the global chip shortage.

It is understood that Xiaomi, Huawei, Samsung, Intel, Apple, etc. all have industrial chain layouts in Vietnam, mainly concentrated in the industrial provinces of northern Vietnam, and the recent surge in infection cases in Vietnam's Bac Giang and Bac Ninh provinces have hundreds of companies entering the global supply chain factory. At present, due to the worsening of the epidemic situation, these two provinces have closed some factories and adjusted the working hours of employees. Once these measures last longer or there are more blockade measures, the impact on the supply chain will be inevitable.

IT House was informed that the report said that starting from today, Malaysia has re-entered a nationwide blockade, which has brought new challenges to the global supply chain of semiconductor chips and electronic products.

On the whole, Southeast Asia has a 27% share of the global chip packaging and testing market. In view of the current development and changes of the epidemic, Intel CEO once again expressed his concerns about the supply of the chip market, saying that the shortage may take several years to resolve.
