Global component shortages
The global electronics supply chain currently faces massive constraints with global chip and component
shortages being experienced in multiple sectors – everything from computers and gaming consoles, through
to mobile devices and vehicles are being affected.
Leading vehicle manufacturers have announced suspending production and idling factories, whilst global
device manufacturers are experiencing product delays linked to the component shortage.
The current shortages are the result of several factors, including pandemic-related stoppages due to
lockdowns, increased demand and disruptions within transport logistics.
The shortages are expected to continue into 2022, resulting in skyrocketing prices.
Unfortunately Impro Technologies, and the associated access control industry, is not immune to the
Lead times for certain components have jumped from a few weeks to 30+ weeks. To mitigate the impact as
much as possible, we are currently placing orders for 2022 and 2023 demand. However, despite our best
efforts we do envisage delays in both Impro goods and third-party devices, which we have no control over.
However Impro has the benefit of being able to utilize our global group buying power and international
logistic chains, to support our efforts in getting products to you timeously.
Our sales and manufacturing teams are working together to track and advise on your order status; and new
updates will be provided on a weekly basis where appropriate.
