EPSNews Reports that Component Shortages will ease as wafer capacity grows. Until the supply of silicon wafer production meets demand, there will be increasing shortages and lead times across many IC segments including memory and semiconductors. With no relief projected until the end of 2018 and early 2019, pricing will not stabilize until then. Samsung, SK Hynix, Micron, Intel, Toshiba/WD all have reported plans to increase production capacity over the next two years, but that's down the road.
