Many automobile and electronics companies are facing difficulties due to the shortage of semiconductors. This has affected production. Tesla, the world’s largest electric car company, has also had to reduce production due to a shortage of semiconductors. Tata Motors, one of the world’s largest automobile companies, has also reduced the production of some of its models due to the shortage of semiconductors. This has also increased the wait for the customers. Most of the companies making semiconductors are in Asia.

Incentives are also being given by the Central Government for the manufacturing of semiconductors in the country. Because of this, some global companies have taken interest in setting up semiconductor related plants in the country. Semiconductors are the tiny microchips used in everything from cars to smartphones. The shortage in the supply of semiconductors has affected the production of electric car maker Tesla as well as many other automobile companies.
