“Through the calendar year 2022, we see the situation improving and expect that some of the shortage will probably still continue into calendar year 2023," Mehrotra told CNBC-TV18's Shereen Bhan on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum's annual summit in Davos on Wednesday.
He said the entire the whole semiconductor industry is definitely investing a lot in terms of increasing production capacity, as well as accelerating technology transitions. “If you look at number of components that had been in shortage over the course of last year, it has improved.
