The ongoing supply-chain disruption has had ripple effects throughout the global economy, including the specialty-equipment industry. More than 80% of industry companies reported having severe or moderate impacts in 2021 because of it, including production delays, shipping issues and higher prices. However, this year should be better.
According to the latest “SEMA Future Trends” report, more than 80% of industry companies reported having severe or moderate impacts in 2021 because of supply-chain disruptions, including production delays, shipping issues and higher prices.
By the end of 2022, SEMA Market Research projects that the most pressing issues with the global supply chain should improve in the second half of 2022. However, prices may remain elevated for longer and likely into 2023.
