US warns of chip shortage risks as companies' supplies shrink

The United States has warned that companies' stockpiles of semiconductor chips have shrunk dramatically due to the global supply shortage, putting production at risk from any disruption. A survey of 150 firms for the Commerce Department found the median stocks held by manufacturers had fallen from 40 days' worth in 2019 to just 5 days' worth in 2021. It comes as Democrats in the House of Representatives published a bill for investment worth $52 billion in the sector.
