Electronic Component Lead Time Report (June 2018)
"The global semiconductor industry has posted consistently strong sales so far in 2018, and the global market has now experienced year-to-year growth of greater than 20 per cent for 13 consecutive months," said John Neuffer, president and CEO of the Semiconductor Industry Association, in a press release.
For those with their ears to the ground, this will come as no surprise. These strong sales figures across the board have been driven by

Although lead times for many MCUs have continued to rise and Texas Instrument’s 16-bit MCUs are now being quoted out at 30 weeks (up from 22), we have noted that lead times have marginally decreased for discrete semiconductors and programmable logic products. Additionally, our information indicates that average lead times for all ON Semiconductor and ST Micro have dropped in the past four weeks.
Moving forward, we would still warn OEMs that the overall supply situation across the entire market is constrained.
