The current electronic component shortage is causing OEM’s to fall far behind on deliveries to their customers. At this point there is no end in sight to the long lead times. Of even more concern is a shortage often leads to a more pronounced shortage than it really is since there is an over ordering frenzy. Customers order more than they need from multiple vendors creating a false demand. If the manufacturers of the components build everything ordered there may eventually be a huge glut in the market which would trigger a whole different set of problems.
