The semiconductor supply chain has suffered greatly since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Temporary factory closures have caused a domino effect on global chip supply, a situation that continues today despite heavy pressure on manufacturers from customers and governments. And demand for computing devices rose at the same time, with companies moving their services to the cloud and changing consumer habits, with many people moving to work from home.In recent months, the spread of the Delta variant in Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia and Vietnam has meant that new plants have had to close or have their production capacity reduced, further impacting the supply for building processing devices, for a wide range of purposes, from computers to automotive components.
This week the Federal Government of Brazil published a decree establishing measures for the reduction of electricity consumption at the level of the national system. The document provides for a 10% to 20% reduction in consumption between September 2021 and April 2022, compared to the average for the same months in the years 2018 and 2019, and directly impacts data centres and data processing centres in the country.Among the recommendations is the reduction in the use of energy for cooling environments, keeping “the rooms of the data processing centres cooled only to the limit of what is technically necessary”
5G networks in the industrial IoT market could reach USD 15.7 billion by 2026, with a compound annual growth rate of 79.1%, benefiting installations with higher transmission speeds, higher density of connected devices on the same network, and lower latency between received commands and performed actions.
In a market that reached USD 24.7 billion of investments in 2020, no less than 90,000 new digital health apps were launched, covering the most varied functions, from monitoring, diagnosis, drug injection control, and even clinical trial tracking.
