Who knew that something so small could create such a big problem? However, this is the case with the semiconductor industry. Chipmakers face supply chain disruptions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

But they are also needed for much of the technology we take for granted, including laptops, tablets, cellphones, game consoles and automobiles – a sector that appears to be the source of the crisis. current.

Any weekend mechanic knows that even traditional internal combustion cars rely heavily on electronics. In fact, electronic parts and components make up 40% of a new internal combustion vehicle. This has more than doubled since 2000.

However, it turns out that some manufacturers may have overestimated how long consumers would be ready for an “all-electric” future. And that meant they hadn’t anticipated the scale of demand for the kind of chips needed to perform the mundane but vital tasks of steering, braking, and even turning on and lowering windows.

Part of the problem is that American companies rely heavily on countries like China and Taiwan for their semiconductors. In fact, only about 12.5% ​​of semiconductor manufacturing is done in the United States.

Of course, this creates a tremendous opportunity for the companies that make these chips. And it comes at the right time. The semiconductor industry is notoriously cyclical and was coming back down from high demand for building 5G.

In this special talk, we’ll give you a list of seven semiconductor companies you can invest in to take advantage of this opportunity.
