47% have already stopped buying some equipment due to the shortage of components

The shortage of components is still one of the most serious problems that concerns the industry, brands and consumers. The pandemic has led to the closure of many factories or a decrease in activity. And as demand increased significantly because people were more in their homes, manufacturers had no ‘hands-on’ or a way to respond to the amount of orders requested. As a result, the lack of parts led to a stockout of products from different segments.

In this sense, in our weekly question we wanted to know if our readers stopped buying some equipment exactly due to the shortage of components. Let’s know all the results.

However, most, with 53% of the votes affirm that the problem of lack of stock of parts has not affected their purchases of products (609 votes).

For a better visual perception, then follow the graph with the results:

According to the comments that readers left us, some mentioned that stopped buying graphics cards, processors, consoles like the PlayStation 5, hard drives, amplifiers, bicycles, cars, test equipment, between others.

However, others say that, although they did not stop buying due to scarcity, they chose to wait for prices to become more attractive.

But if you didn’t answer our question, then let us know if you’ve stopped buying any equipment due to the shortage of chips.
