Future Trends for Electronics and IT Hardware Sector in India

The Indian Electronics and IT Hardware sector has 6 key segments, namely Consumer Electronics, Industrial Electronics, IT Hardware, Telecommunication Equipment, Electronic Components, and Strategic Electronics. Consumer Electronics and Telecom Equipment are the largest segments with about 27% share each in total production.

The consumption of electronic in India is expected to reach $400 billion by 2020. . Looking at a huge potential in Indian Electronics and IT Hardware sector, large number of foreign companies have started investing in India, resulting in high growth and employment generation in this sector.

Thus, with the growth in electronic and IT hardware manufacturing in India, demand for Verification Engineers is bound to increase. The human resource directly employed in the industry is estimated to increasing from the current level of 0.9 million to over 4 million by 2022. This would translate to an incremental human resource requirement of about 3 million to 3.2 million in the entire industry and about 14,92,000 in manufacturing functions by 2022.
