Israel-Gaza war disrupting supply chain

THE Israel-Gaza conflict is seen impacting global supply chains, as the logistics infrastructure at the port of Ashdod is the closest container port to Gaza. S&P Global Market Intelligence’s recent study, “Ports, electronics and health care: Supply chain impact of conflict in Israel,” shed light on the supply chain implications arising from the ongoing conflict in Israel and Gaza. The study emphasized that the magnitude of these implications is contingent upon the trajectory of the conflict.

At least one shipping line has indicated that maritime shipping is operating as normal as of October 9, but the situation remains subject to change. “Air freight via Tel Aviv airport may be disrupted. Israel’s largest export lines include electronics, healthcare, and defense supply chains, which could face operational or logistics disruptions in the event of an escalated conflict,” the report showed.

Notably, Israel plays a significant role in the supply of computer processors to the European Union, contributing 14 percent of EU computer processor imports in the 12 months leading up to July 31, 2023. These processors are primarily shipped to Ireland, where they are utilized in fabrication plants (fabs) owned by industry giants, such as Intel Corp. and Tower Semiconductor Ltd. “Israel also exported US$2.62 billion worth of telecom network equipment and US$3.15 billion worth of aerospace equipment, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), in 2022, both led by shipments to Europe and the US,” according to the report. Pharmaceutical exports from Israel, amounting to $2.17 billion, are particularly susceptible to disruptions in the logistics network. Israel’s importance to global drug supply chains has declined, however, falling to 1.1 percent of US imports and 0.8 percent of EU imports due to reshoring by Israeli pharmaceutical manufacturers.
