Spain is already suffering from the semiconductor crisis and one of its major industries is slowing down
The shortage of components continues without solution and increasingly affects more sectors, so much so that it is stopping large factories in Spain.
Months ago it was warned about the lack of semiconductors and how it could start to slow down different industries, since then it has lived a crisis that does not stop increasing and that has affected the launch of mobiles, consoles and vehicles. So much so that we not only see delays in news, it also slows down the Spanish industry in an increasingly marked way.
The problem began to be known a long time ago, although at first it was overshadowed by the coronavirus pandemic. But time passes, the demand for components continues to increase and not enough are manufactured to meet the needs. We began to see the consequences in March with a great ERTE in Galicia, but it was only the beginning.
The automotive industry is being particularly slowed down by the lack of chips and in Spain we will live a week where you can fully see, with stops included in some of the most important factories.
On Five days have compiled how it will affect the automotive industry in our country and it is beginning to be disturbing: there is no solution and the problem seems to get worse and worse, as the following examples show.
- Seat the production of Audi A1 in Martorell will stop specific days.
- Volkswagen will close production for several days in Navarra.
- Mercedes-Benz will stop three shifts in Vitoria.
- Ford It reopens in Almussafes after a seven-day break.
- Stellantis Group will continue with continuous suspensions.
- Renault will keep your ERTE until September 30.
We must remember that these problems in production affect different areas and are valued until they cause a increase in the prices of some appliances. The industry is not expected to recover in 2021 and the speculation about how long the crisis may last is numerous, but the most pessimistic ones should not be ruled out. This shortage is very serious and requires a push at all levels to solve it.
