On February 2nd, ASUS India sent an email to fans, GSMArena reported. Asus said in an email that supply chain disruptions due to widespread forms in Asia would result in a temporary shortage of Asus ROG Game 2. Media pointed out that the Shortage of Asus ROG Game Mobile 2 is related to the outbreak in China. Before that, Apple temporarily closed its retail stores.
Strategy Analytics said in a report that 70 percent of the world’s smartphones are manufactured in China, so the outbreak will also affect the global smartphone supply chain and manufacturing capacity. Supply chains face a shortage of labour due to delays in plant starts due to isolation or travel restrictions.
On the other hand, the outbreak will also hit global smartphone sales. Strategy Analytics forecasts that global smartphone shipments will be 2% lower than expected in 2020 and 5% lower than expected in China, with Chinese smartphone market shipments falling by more than 30% in the first quarter of this year.
