Market Byte 1.26.2023
From autumn to the end of 2022, the semiconductor market largely held steady in terms of trends, one of which was a growth in excess inventory of consumer-electronics ICs. As we move into 2023, this will be a key trend to monitor for shifts in this dynamic or a doubling-down in excess growth.
Automotive Insights Market Byte 1.25.2023
Near year-end 2022, global automakers cut production numbers due to semiconductor shortages, not as a result of flagging demand. Currently, the markets for automotive applications – in addition to factory automation, medical equipment, and renewable energy – remain strong.
Market Byte 1.24.2023
The January 6 fire at Welnew Microelectronics in Wuxi, China could take the facility down for an estimated 4-5 months. Among their customers, Vishay, Infineon, and Osram have sent impact notifications so far. Medium- to high-voltage MOSFETs, small-signal RF amplifiers, and LED drivers are the IC types most likely to be affected.
Market Byte 1.19.2023
Infineon currently has a very large backlog, a dynamic that will likely continue in the near future, as their MOSFETs have lead times of 50-65 weeks and their IGBTs are at 39-50 weeks.
