  5. 20. The Relationship Between Vertical Integration and Risk. A Statistical Analysis of Changes in Vertical Integration within Industries Affected by the Global Semiconductor Shortage

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Dorotea Brsakoska; Annika Ebert; Bohdan Pavlov; [2022]
    Keywords : vertical integration; systemic risk; MNCs; semiconductor-reliant industries; semiconductor shortage; TCE; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : Succeeding a brief discussion of what vertical integration (VI) is, its interaction with risk and uncertainty, and the context of this study, namely the COVID-19 pandemic and its simultaneous semiconductor shortages, the purpose of this paper is outlined to fill a research gap regarding an empirically supported relationship between vertical integration and systemic risk. The aim and contribution here is subsequently twofold: to examine whether one can predict strategic trends and behavior among multinational companies when it comes to value chain ownership and control decisions in response to abnormal levels of systemic risk, and, to more generally statistically prove or disprove the seeming theoretical consensus that vertical integration can be a key risk-reduction strategy for various reasons, something that will be detailed and explored more closely in an extensive literature review.
