A global shortage of semiconductors critical to auto and electronics makers has also ensnared the solar sector.

Enphase Energy Inc. on Tuesday said it “experienced constraints in the global semiconductor supply chain” in the fourth quarter, according to a statement. Chief Executive Officer Badri Kothandaraman called the supply issues “manageable” during an earnings call, saying he expects the problem to ease over the next two months.
