2022 was a year, full of challenges, that we, however, managed to defy successfully. Economies worldwide found themselves under the crushing weight of the developments in the course of the last few years. After the 2020 pandemic year was followed by a year of electronic component shortages and rupturing global supply chains, we had to witness the unimaginable war in Ukraine in 2022. At the beginning of the year, the entire European automotive industry had to face three worsened economic outlooks - the war in Ukraine which disrupted the supply chain of car components (primarily cable sets), a drop in sales in the countries involved in the conflict, and an extremely restricted supply of semi-conductors from Asia. During the second half of 2022, supply chain was somewhat less subject to disruptions, resulting primarily from the slowdown in growth of new industry orders. Nevertheless, these still remained significantly below the long-standing average.
