Commentary:

The automobile industry is an industry that is really feeling the impact of shortages especially when it comes to chips that go in the vehicle. Production and sales of cars have started to slow down because of these shortages. German car producers such as Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen and BMW have had to cut back on productions and some expect the German economy to hit a “speedbump” because of uncertainty in the car industry.
