Insiders IDM and chip manufacturers will increase automotive MCU production

Digitimes quoted industry sources as saying that international IDM and chip manufacturers will increase the output of automotive MCUs in the next few years to meet the growing demand for such chips.

Digitimes reported that Japan’s Renesas Electronics has formulated a plan to increase its automotive MCU production by 50% by the end of 2023; Infineon has decided to invest 2.4 billion euros (2.064 billion US dollars) for capacity expansion; in addition, wafer foundries TSMC will also increase the output of automotive MCUs by 60% in 2021.

According to sources, the continuing shortage of automotive chips has caused major automakers such as Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW to express concerns about the prospects for car production and sales in the coming months or years.

“Due to the shortage of related chips, General Motors, Volkswagen, Nissan and Tesla have announced that they will reduce the production of certain specific models in the next few years.” The source said.

At the same time, due to the shortage of chip supply, China’s electric vehicle startup Ideal, its September sales fell 24.8% from the previous month to 7,094 units. Its local counterparts, Great Wall Motors and Changan Automobile, also extended the delivery time of new cars for the same reason.
