My kitchen sink, which is at the end of the water supply, has really low pressure on the hot water only. Why is this?

1- Pressure drop do to friction loss

2- Galvanized piping with mineral deposits inside

3-Globe pattern valve partically closed

4- Kinked water supply either riser or copper tubing

5- Dirty aerator

6-Inadequate design

7- flow restrictor installed in valve body

8- Washer other other obstruction blocking full flow like a bib screw fell down a supply tube

9- Cheap imported faucet

10- Expensive brand name faucet which is made of poor quality or poor design

11- To many fixtures used at the same time SEE # 6

12- Hot water line hooked up to return circulation

unless I can see the condition and trace out the lines then here are just a few guesses
