- SiliconExpert Releases Report on Japanese Earthquake’s Impact on the Electronics Industry
25 March 2011 -- Today SiliconExpert Technologies releases a supply chain report on the impact of the March 11th Japanese earthquake and ensuing tsunami on the global electronics industry. The report analyzes over 150 manufacturing sites from electronic component manufacturers with locations in Japan. Damage assessments and product types impacted due to the earthquake and ensuing tsunami are also listed alongside confirmation reports from electronic component manufacturers.
The report’s findings show a large number of electronic component manufacturers reporting low to partial impacts to manufacturing facilities with impacts to product lines ranging from ceramic capacitors, transistors and diodes to flash memory and circuit modules. Reported estimates for recovery to full production levels range from a few weeks to several months. A select number of component manufacturers have also reported a high degree of damage to their manufacturing facilities with no concrete time estimates yet given for reaching a full recovery of their production capabilities.
“The human and economic impact due to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami is quite substantial. We will continue to assess the situation for the next several months to keep our customers and the electronics industry informed of the supply chain issues that are arising due to the situation at hand,” says Omar Ahmad, President & CEO of SiliconExpert Technologies.

The majority of production bases are able to operate but with reduced capacity due to rolling power outages. Four production bases are in the process of carrying out recovery works.
Two plants are operating normally and a third plant is about to resume operation following a damage assessment.
No damage reported to the factory manufacturing passive components.
EMI suppression filters & coils: Partial damage to building and equipment reported with electricity, water and gas out of service.
Piezoelectric products & SAW filters: No significant damage to the building but electricity, water and gas out of service.
Polymer capacitors: Unable to operate due to loss of power but no damage to plant.
