The Global Component Shortage

Thumbnail for The Global Component Shortage

The latest predictions are that the component shortage is going to last till 2025 and worst case 2030, are you prepared for that? Link

It is now even more critical to advance order hardware for projects and your critical spares, as there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel.

All major Automation companies seem to be affected, with new platform hardware like Rockwell’s 5069 processors and IO extremely hard to source. Analogue modules also are difficult to find, and prices in some cases, are 3 x 4 times normal.

In general prices are still high for high demand low availability items, this is situation that is outside of our control, but we are always happy to assist with qty and project discounts whenever we can.

Please send us your spares requirements, standard BOMs or project parts lists and we will endeavour to source what you need or where practical look for alternatives.

For pricing or information on how we can assist you, please contact PLC Hardware on 1300 PLC EXPerts (752427) or email
