Macroeconomic factors – COVID-19 related impact to the operation of a Company is not observed. Overall energy cost increase related to electrical and heating, despite increased costs, represent relatively small share in cost structure and has limited impact on profitability.
Increasing component prices and extraordinary long lead-times are still influencing business growth and volumes due to global semiconductor deficit, explained by the growth in upstream demand in data networks, automotive, medicine and IoT business sectors.
Semiconductor component availability has not improved in Q2 2022 and is reported at the same level as in previous period. Industry experts and players expect the increase in manufacturing capacities come into operation, resulting in gradually ending deficit period somewhere in time interval from Q4 2022 up to Q4 2023.
