ASC American Sun Components attended Electronica 2022 in Munich, Germany from November 15th to 18th. Electronica brought together over 2,100 exhibitors and nearly 70,000 visitors. This November, Electronica saw the highest levels of attendance since before the Covid pandemic, with attendance only lagging behind 2018’s record high by 14 percent. International attendance from companies like ASC and visitors was up by 54 percent over previous exhibitions.
One of the main topics of conversation at Electronica 2022 was the distribution challenges many manufacturers and suppliers are facing. Like many other industries, the international electronics industry has suffered from shipping delays, supply chain bottlenecks, and shortages of both raw materials and skilled workers.
Without the proper components, electronics manufacturers cannot meet global demand for a wide variety of products. Their options are to scale down production and lose profit or replace their usual materials with inferior ones, potentially hurting their reputation and leading to future revenue loss. ASC has over 5 million semiconductors, passives, and electromechanical components in stock from over a thousand name-brand suppliers. We can deliver anywhere in the world within 24 to 48 hours, helping to keep production lines moving. We also offer free quality testing, so our customers know that when we say, “quality is non-negotiable,” we really mean it.
ASC hosted a 350 square-meter booth at Electronica, complete with a balcony, café seating, and a coffee and snack bar fully staffed with a barista and service team.
