Thus, one batch of goods satisfies only one percent of pre-orders of Russian consumers. The fact that modern set-top boxes are in short supply was confirmed by a source in another company that deals with e-commerce.
“Of course, the pandemic has an impact on the entire chain – from components to supplies,” representatives of M.Video-Eldorado named the reasons for the shortage of goods. According to experts, the irregularity of production cycles is a worldwide trend.
Eldar Murtazin, a leading analyst at Mobile Research Group, noted that the problem is related to the uneven work of electronics manufacturing enterprises. The energy crisis in China also affects the market.
