The global shortage of commonly used multi-layer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCC) continues with more affected lines announced from AVX, KEMET, Murata, TDK & Yageo.

With so many factors contributing to the current shortage of passive electronic components, it’s evident that the conditions of today’s market are distinct from historical shortages. What’s more, industry experts claim that the “time of restriction” will last longer, making this year’s allocation and shortage issues more complicated than ever before.

SUMMARY OF CAUSE

The root cause is economical, and largely pertains to case dimensions 0201, 0402 and upward ― both in high & low case volumes.
