Many semiconductor manufacturers in Japan have yet to fully resume operations as a result of the 26-magnitude earthquake that struck on January 1, but experts predict the economic impact will be less severe than the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake. In the automotive sector, spot shortages of MLCC, resistor sensors and connectors have remained flat month-to-month, but are still more severe than at the beginning of 2023. Affected by the January 1 earthquake, Sanken Electric's three plants in Ishikawa Prefecture are still facing a lack of water and electricity supply. However, the company expects to resume production at two of its plants in early February.
