Market Outlook 2023
The global disruption in the availability of electronic components has had a slowing effect on the development of the company's business and sales during the beginning of the year. The company estimates that the markets are recovering, and that the component shortage will recede during 2023.
About 70 percent of Bittium's net sales in total are generated from products and related systems, and the uncertainties caused by the component shortage related to product deliveries cause significant uncertainty for the accumulation of Bittium's net sales and operating result during the year 2023.
