Chip Delivery Times Fall by a Day as Companies See Some Relief

The delivery times for semiconductors fell by a day in June, a sign of modest relief after chronic shortages that have plagued automakers and other industries for more than a year.

Lead times — a closely watched gap between when a semiconductor is ordered and when it is delivered — averaged 27 weeks last month, compared with 27.1 weeks in May, according to research by Susquehanna Financial Group. The measure was also 27 weeks in April.
