Young Liu, Foxconn's CEO, said the company will not be able to fulfill some of the orders placed due to a shortage of components and could last at least until the second quarter of next year. Apple, for example, will deliver orders with some delay, and the moment we live in today has been more drastic.

Several companies are suffering from this component shortage, Samsung warned its investors of a "serious imbalance" in the semiconductor industry. I also fear vehicle manufacturers like Ford, Volkswagen, Nissan and Toyota, which face similar issues.

Companies like Sony and Microsoft also cite problems in producing their new generation consoles, meaning that several companies have been facing the same problem since the coronavirus pandemic paralyzed automakers and suppliers worldwide.
