Global chip shortage to cause lengthy hardware delays
A global shortage of silicon computer chips could mean that you have to wait and pay more for hardware.
Are you are in the market for a new smartphone, computer, car or even a washing machine? A global shortage of silicon computer chips could mean that you have to wait and pay more.
This comes after an increasing number of chip manufacturers worldwide are having difficulties securing supplies of semiconductors, delaying production and delivery of goods, and threatening to push up prices paid by customers.
In January 2020, global semiconductor sales reached over $40 billion, an increase of 13.2% compared to the same time in 2020.
The team at onPlatinum have already seen delays and price increases for laptops, docking stations, headsets, and graphics cards. It is expected that the shortage will trickle down to everyday items that people wouldn’t associate with high-end technologies, such as children’s toys and microwaves.

Be sure to order any equipment now before prices and wait times increase dramatically. Order before 30 June to claim a deduction this financial year.
