Overall, most companies reported lack of components, particularly computer chips, as well as rising costs for both components and shipping. Most also continue to deal with logistics delays. Japan-based companies also reported favorable effects due to a depreciating yen. Another trend virtually all companies reported were large equipment backorders.
