Bosch Expresses Chip Crisis Concerns Despite Growth Forecast: Reuters

Bosch Expresses Chip Crisis Concerns Despite Growth Forecast: Reuters
  • German engineering and technology company, Robert Bosch GmbH, estimated a 6% sales growth and 3% in operating margin growth for 2021 after reporting a 17% jump in first-quarter sales subject to the intensity of the global semiconductor chip crisis, Reuters reports.
  • The company did not expect any improvement in the near term. It prioritized the resolution of the impending issue followed by precautionary measures for future crises.
  • The production at Bosch's new Dresden plant will commence three months in advance from Sep. However, it was unable to resolve the chip supply bottleneck as specialized companies manufactured them.
  • The chip crisis has impacted the integrated circuits, automotive microcontrollers, and application-specific integrated circuits, Bosch said in March.
  • The pandemic-induced demand spike for consumer electronics industry chips fueled the auto chip crisis. Automakers have become increasingly dependent on chips for everything ranging from computer management of engines to driver-assistance features.
  • Recently luxury carmaker Daimler AG (OTC: DMLRY) announced a reduction in the working hours for up to 18,500 employees and temporary production suspension at two German plants due to the chip crisis.
