Global Chip Shortage Will Continue Through 2022, Says Nvidia CEO

I think that through the next year, demand is going to far exceed supply. We don’t have any magic bullets in navigating the supply chain," says Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang.

The global semiconductor shortage has been a major headache for the entire tech industry for well over a year at this point, and that has, of course, applies to the games industry as well. Manufacturing has been unexpectedly complicated for Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony, as well as the likes of AMD and Nvidia in the PC space, and with it looking likely that supplies for the Switch, the PS5, and the Xbox Series X/S will continue to be throttled for the foreseeable future, it’s clear that the chip shortage isn’t going away anytime soon.

According to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, in fact, the global semiconductor shortage will continue to be a complication that manufacturers will have to deal with through 2022 as well. Huang said the same while speaking recently with Yahoo! Finance, before adding that where Nvidia is concerned, the company’s large and spread out supply chain will continue to help it through that rough window.

“I think that through the next year, demand is going to far exceed supply. We don’t have any magic bullets in navigating the supply chain,” Huang said. “We have the support of our suppliers. We’re fortunate that we’re multi-sourced and that our supply chain is diverse and our company is quite large so we have the support of a large ecosystem around us.”

This is not an uncommon opinion by any means. The likes of AMD, Toshiba, and Foxconn have all said that the chip shortage is going to continue until 2022, while recently, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said that it might even extend into 2023. Read more on that through here.
