Taiwan's Acer says component shortage squeezes PC makers

Display maker Innolux warns supply chain imbalances will last through 2021

TAIPEI -- Computer maker Acer and key tech suppliers are warning that the global shortage of electronic components is worsening, potentially hampering the PC industry's growth this year despite strong demand.

"We are continuously facing a condition that demand always exceeds supply," Acer Chairman and CEO Jason Chen said on Wednesday. "We feel growing pressure because of the component shortages, and our staff are working with additional efforts to chase all the components needed every day."
