The production disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has a major impact on the technology sector.
Although there was no serious problem in the first year of the pandemic, chip supply, one of the most important components of RFID tags, has been mentioned a lot especially after the second half of 2021 and has made itself felt in the last quarter of 2021.
Unfortunately, the most troubling consequence of this reduction was the price increase in the unit costs of RFID tags. On the other hand, due to supply problems, labels could not be supplied for some projects in spite of high budget allocation.
As of December 2021, when this article was written, there is a “relative” relief in chip supply, especially in automobile companies in the Far East. This good news will provide relief not only to those of us who work with chips but also to critical sectors such as automotive and white goods that have to use chips in almost every product. However, this information is so new that it may take a couple of months or more for to have an impact on our lives.
