THE PRESSURE ON THE SUPPLY CHAIN FOR ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS IS HIGHER THAN EVER
The products and components manufactured and assembled by electronics companies are at the core of the exciting, fast-moving, and increasingly complex technologies that touch every aspect of today’s modern life. However, the rising demand for reliable, high-performance electronics has built massive pressure on the supply chain:
