German Components Distribution expects consolidation after 3 years of rapid growth
FBDi Chairman Georg Steinberger: "The trend of the last quarter is continuing, the consolidation after almost three turbulent years is as expected as it is inevitable. Although a significant number of components is still difficult to obtain, general availability has improved significantly. We expect 2023 to end slightly positive for distribution overall. However, patience is required for 2024, as the turnaround in orders will depend not only on stock levels, but also on the situation in the end markets.”
According to Steinberger and his FBDi colleagues, the future basically looks like this: "The electronification of all areas of society continues to progress. Some industries may be somewhat cautious at the moment due to the economic situation, but the demand for semiconductors and innovative component solutions will remain high in the long term. Even the general geopolitical situation - however critical at the moment - will not change this. But, our industry also needs to be more aware of its responsibilities and become much more active in the fight for sustainable business".
