Supply Chain Implications


Semiconductor Manufacturing Crisis

Electronics, automotives, and many other industries rely heavily on Taiwan-made semiconductors, whose future is uncertain


Decoupling and Reshoring

As the U.S. advocates for reduced reliance on China, supply chains shift – introducing new potential risks


Geopolitical Instability

After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, fears over the destabilizing effect of Chinese military action against Taiwan rise


Ongoing COVID Lockdowns

China’s Zero-COVID strategy continues to shut down major manufacturing hubs
