Companies in the global automotive industry, especially automakers in Europe, are forced to suspend production due to lack of electronic components. It was wondering whether this situation would affect the production in our country. Expected news Oyak Renaultcame from.
Oyak Renault General Manager Antoine AounHe stated that the supply problems experienced in the global automotive industry also affected Oyak Renault. Expressing that there is a supply problem especially in electronic components that are vital for the sector, Aoun said, ” Clio, Clio E-tech and Megane SedanWe use the latest technologies in our Mechanical Factory. This is our factory needing high volume electronic components “It makes it one of the main production facilities.”

The crisis may hang until the second half of the year
Software and electronic components have become of vital importance in the new generation vehicles equipped with comfort and safety-oriented features. In addition to advanced multimedia systems, powerful components are needed to process the data obtained from sensors and cameras quickly.
Automotive manufacturers reduced the supply of chips, which are of great importance for production, as the demand for automobiles decreased due to the pandemic last year. Since the end of last year, when production gained a positive momentum again, companies knocked on the door of chip suppliers again, but chip manufacturers already working at full capacity could not keep up with this demand of automotive companies. Therefore, this problem arose, which caused the wheels to stop again in automotive.
Governments, not companies, started to step in to solve the electronic component problem in automotive. First Germany and then the USA started to negotiate with the Taiwanese TSMC, which is the largest chip manufacturer, on this problem. However, experts say the supply problem may hang until the second half of 2021.
