Electronics and Semiconductors have emerged as critical elements of economic growth and strategic security for any country. While India steadfastly marches towards the USD 5 Trillion economy aptly supported by USD 1 Trillion Digital economy, it is imperative that India develops a self-reliant and sustainable electronics and semiconductor ecosystem within the country.
In recent years, the ICT and Electronics sector has experienced significant growth, largely driven by escalating demand from emerging market economies. A noteworthy shift in manufacturing locales has also been observed, with a move away from Europe and North America towards Asia. Presently, China is the predominant global destination for ESDM, with its electronics production accounting for nearly 40% of global output and 30% of global electronics exports. Furthermore, Southeast Asia, particularly Vietnam, and Indonesia, has emerged as a prominent global hub for electronics manufacturing. This is attributed to a combination of factors, including lower labor costs, and attractive incentives.
The global electronics market is currently valued at around USD 2 trillion and is expected to grow significantly due to the increasing penetration of emerging technologies such as 5G, IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Smart Mobility, and Smart Manufacturing.
