Future Electronics Releases Video Addressing Severe Worldwide Capacitor Shortage

Montreal, Quebec (findit) July 6, 2018 - Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has released a video explaining the ongoing global supply crisis in capacitors and related passive components, and the steps they have taken to help their customers.

The electronics industry is facing a severe and unprecedented shortage of capacitors, resistors, and power inductors. MOSFETs, diodes and transistors and other discrete semiconductors are increasingly constrained as well.

These shortages are being driven by automotive sector growth, smart phones, wireless network infrastructure and IoT, and are expected to continue for the foreseeable future, creating tremendous uncertainty in the market and instability in supply chain.

"We're proud to be the world's leading distributor of capacitors, and we're committed to helping our customers avoid line-down situations," said Jacques Hing, Vice-President, Worldwide, Capacitors at Future Electronics. "This video explains the conditions we're seeing in the market, and the steps we're taking to mitigate them."
