Q3 Component Market Trend Data
A word from Anthony Alberga, Future’s Corporate Vice President:
“Most manufacturers are now experiencing some sort of lead time extension. Whether it is pure demand on certain technology types, a lack of raw materials or logistical challenges, lead time extensions are anticipated to accelerate and continue.
This unprecedented demand is continuing to fuel the need for raw materials and incremental capacity expansion which is not only driving price increases on previously increased products, but is forcing many manufacturers to increase prices across the majority of their offering in an effort to keep up with their manufacturing, material and logistics cost increases.
As previously stated, the length of the current constrained environment remains unknown. We are of the belief that the environment that we are experiencing today will continue well into Q4 at the earliest. We encourage all of our customers to provide visibility to their long term demand so as to minimize any supply disruptions”
