Are you also going to be affected by the market situation – allocation?

For few months, there has been some information on the negative situation, so-called allocation.

This is an archive article published 11/08/2017. Some information may no longer be up to date and in line with the current state. Please contact us in case of interest.

What is it?

Market situation, when the demand grows faster than the capacity of the components’ manufacturers. Manufacturers then begin to fulfil the orders according to the manufacturer’s rules, e.g.:
  • Orders are processed only partially
  • The order is determined by the manufacturer
  • Delivery times are prolonged
  • An unusual rise in prices
  • The market with electronic components has been influenced by it a lot approximately 8 years ago. And now it’s back.

    Since the beginning of 2017, delivery times have been extended thanks to orders from the automotive market and the mobile phone market. These are mainly some groups of passive and semiconductor elements. We can say that some of them are already in the allocation

    We therefore asked our contractors about the current situation of their stock of materials, production capacities, and the expected trend of development. All of them assured us that in the near future they would not have any flat allocation on their side. Nevertheless, we have increased inventory by 15%in SOS electronic.

    Of course, we do not have a magic ball and we do not know what products you need for your projects. We therefore recommend that you plan your orders as soon as possible and send them to us with the expected delivery dates. This way, we will be able to discuss the delivery and payment conditions with manufacturers easier and faster.
