Nintendo expects a 10% drop in Switch sales due to supply constraints

Global semiconductor shortages and supply constraints have hampered all hardware in the market for several years now, and the effects of these problems are still being felt.
Nintendo, for example, reportedly expects Switch sales to decline due to these circumstances.According to a report published by Nikkei, Nintendo expects a 10 percent drop in Switch sales in fiscal year 2022 with total sales of about 20 million for that period.
That's down from 23 million in the previous year, which itself was down from 28 million units the year before.According to the report, ongoing global semiconductor shortages as well as supply chain problems have meant that the console isn't selling as well as expected, and Nintendo can't produce as much hardware as originally planned.Earlier this year, Nintendo reported that Switch sold over 103 million units worldwide, making it the company's best-selling home console to date.The Switch has been the biggest seller of the year for the company's home console.
How much of this will be affected by continued supply problems remains to be seen.
