10 Electronics Gadgets With Supply-Chain Sizzle
As the electronics industry slides into summer, there’s some indications that lead times for electronics may be shortening. Although the industry won’t achieve normal inventory across major chip categories until the middle of 2023, the Gartner Index of Inventory Semiconductor Supply Chain Tracking predicts some normalization as early as this fall. Electronics-gadget pioneers are clearly counting on that—and putting out a host of offerings on funding platforms hoping for investments.
We took a look at these campaigns and handpicked a few that are creative and fun and still have some time left until final funding. We were looking for the electronics hardware projects that were funded many times over even though their campaign hasn’t even ended.
The list includes everything from a cool electric scooter to an electronically enhanced lunch box that will heat up or cool down your food while on the go. Several of these projects were fully funded within an hour of being published. All of them demonstrate the continued demand for electronics components. We believe it is one promising indicator that gives credence to the prediction that the global semiconductor industry will grow 10 percent in 2022 to reach $600 billion for the first time ever, according to McKinsey.
