Electronic Component Lead Time Report (May 2018)

With shortages, capacity constraints and allocation dominating market discussions, there is a distinct threat that manufacturer lead times could be due an upturn. Recently, we have seen an upsurge in demand of multi-layered ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) and many believe that this is only the tip of the iceberg, with rumours circulating that demand for resistors and Power MOSFETs could soon reach maximum capacity.

The result of this is that many manufacturers and franchised component distributors have started to prioritise existing customers and, in some instances, are refusing to take on new orders for constrained product types.

In short

  • Maximum lead time for NXP products increase to 39 weeks
  • Large lead time rises noted for Broadcom’s LEDs and optical devices
  • Availability of DSPs and MCUs continue to be tight.
  • Franchise distributors warn about future price increases for discrete semiconductors.

 For a full breakdown, read our complete market report below.
