IBM says chip shortage could last two years

 

The boss of the US tech giant IBM has said a computer chip shortage could last another two years.

Its President Jim Whitehurst told the BBC it could be "a few years" before the situation improves.

Many firms have seen production delayed because of a lack of semiconductors, triggered by the pandemic.

The shortage has been exacerbated by surging demand for TVs, phones and gaming consoles while consumers are stuck at home.

IBM licenses its microprocessor technology to the world's biggest chip makers such as Intel, TSMC and Samsung.
