Make in India - Strategy for Electronic Products  - Draft released in May 2016

Electronics industry is among the largest and fastest growing manufacturing Industry in the world. The total Electronics Equipment Production of the world during the year 2014 was estimated to be around US$ 2.0 trillion. The maximum production was that of Computer Systems and Peripherals (26.6 percent) followed by communication equipment (21.7 percent), Consumer Electronics (12.6 percent), Instruments (10.7%), industrial equipment (9.5 percent) and Equipment for Government / Military (8.8 percent). Over the years, production bases have shifted from USA and EU to Asia and the latter’s share in global production has increased to over 60%.

March 2016

India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA), the premier trade body representing the Indian Electronic System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) industry and The National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enable India in becoming a leading player in the next era of ESDM and IT.

One billion dollar Analog Wafer Fab MOU

IESA (India Electronics & Semiconductor Association) enabled the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between US-based Cricket Semiconductor and the Government of Madhya Pradesh for an analog fab proposed to be set-up in the state. The proposed investment is expected to be Rs 6000 crore ($1 BILLION) to set up an analog wafer fab in the country.

The creation of this fab ecosystem coupled with the products and systems value chain is expected to create close to 4,50,000 new jobs, making a potential future economic impact of $40 billion, over its project life span and reduce electronics import burden for the nation.

The government expects to double the export of telecom equipment and services to $10 billion (Rs 62,000 crore) in the next five years (14% growth rate).

Current telecom export is Rs 32,000 crore (Rs 320 billion), about Rs 20,000 crore (Rs 200 billion) comes from equipment and products and Rs 12,000 crore (Rs 120 billion) from telecom services such as consultancy projects.

Telecom Equipment and Services Export Promotion Council promotes  export of telecom equipment and services.

December 2015

Investment in the electronics manufacturing sector has jumped over six-fold in a year to reach Rs 1.14 lakh crore by December 2015

The turnover of consumer electronics during the year 2014 was Rs 45,000 crore and during 2015 it is likely to be Rs 50,000 crore.


India mfg will contribute  $1 trillion by 2025.


Employment Potential of Electronics Sector in India

It is estimated that around 16.1 million people will be directly employed in the industry by 2014 and 27.8 million by 2020, as compared to the current 4.4 million. According to the report on Manpower for electronics industry, the concentration of manpower is in the manufacturing segment followed by after sales and sales support. R&D on the other hand employs the least number of people. Regulations relating to over-time and contracts also need to be revamped to meet the highs and lows of demand. Hence, the government needs to focus proactively on skill development. The recent report on ‘Human Resource and Skill Requirements in Electronics and IT Hardware’ by the National Skill Development Mission may be referred to in this regards.
