Subaru Yajima suspended production between April 10-27 due to the disruptions in the chip supply at the Yajima factory.

In the statement made by Subaru, it was stated that the company will continue production on all production lines at this factory as of May 10, and it was stated that there is no precise information about how the financial statements will be affected due to the interruption.

Since the last months of 2020, the semiconductor chip crisis has prevailed worldwide. Chip manufacturers, who prioritize such products in order to keep up with the increasing sales of home electronics, phones and tablets during the pandemic period, have been unable to supply semiconductor chips, especially to the technologically developing automotive industry. This caused many automotive manufacturers on a global scale to delay or even stop production.


Intel, one of the largest microchip manufacturers in the world, announced its new investment in order to prevent this crisis. The firm announced that it plans to build two new chip factories in the US state of Arizona, with an investment of $20 billion.


The global chip supply problem, which started in automotive and spread to other sectors such as electronics, is expected to cause billions of dollars in damage by causing disruptions in production.

Chips, which are of great importance in every field of technology from wearable electronics to in-vehicle electronic systems for health, have become one of the competitive factors between countries, and with the effect of the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) epidemic, it has taken the leading role of a global "bottleneck" starting from the automotive industry.

The Covid-19 epidemic, which caused disruptions in the supply chain and negated economic predictions, brought a global "shortage" in the supply of chips used in the production of many technological products, from smartphones to computers, military equipment to automobiles.
