Wennink announced in an announcement of ASML's financial results on April 20, 2022 that sales in the first quarter were higher than expected. The company, which provides semiconductor lithography technology, expected to continue to grow sales.

'Currently, there are no signs of decline in our customer base,' Wennink said in a dialogue with analysts, emphasizing that semiconductor demand remains high. 'Almost all customers who have sold equipment so far are buying old products that use semiconductors.' 'A major company is buying old washing machines to recover semiconductors,' he said. It reveals that companies that have reached the limit of their supply capacity are buying up old equipment.

'Reusing semiconductors from older equipment is no exception and can happen anywhere. Today's semiconductor production uses semiconductor technology from 15, 20, and 25 years ago. It has been done. '

AMD CEO Lisa Su is optimistic about the global semiconductor shortage, saying that it will not be serious in the second half of 2022. On the other hand, semiconductor maker Intel has expressed a harsh view that 'the supply shortage will continue until 2023.'
