The pandemic has highlighted numerous manufacturing supply chain challenges. A critical issue being addressed recently is the global shortage of semiconductors. Increased demand for electronics, restrictions on manufacturing activity, and trade wars have all contributed to the problem. Consequently, the scarcity of these materials is impacting consumers as well as major sectors of the economy. This webinar will provide an opportunity to learn from industry experts about the following topics:
• General overview of post-pandemic manufacturing supply chains
• Analysis of the semiconductor shortage
• Impacts on the electronics and automotive industries
