The Virtual Eric Miscoll Show (EMS) – ECIA’s Dale Ford and TTI’s Don Akery Discuss the Material Supply Chain
Eric Miscoll and Philip Stoten discuss the component supply chain with Don Akery, President of TTI Americas and Dale Ford, Chief Analyst of ECIA. These two guests have real time insights into where the disruptions are likely to occur as the recovery unfolds. They share their observations about which component categories are expected to experience growth in the next few quarters, and where the challenges are likely to arise. They are cautiously optimistic about the near term and the long term in most of the end markets, including, surprisingly, automotive. They touch on APIs available for component selection, how customers are enthusiastically embracing digitalization of the component supply chain, what initiatives are being launched to create new efficiencies, and much more.
