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 electronics in India is expected to reach $400 billion by 2020. With the growth in electronics and IT hardware manufacturing in India, the demand for Assembly Supervisor is bound to increase. The human resource directly employed in the industry is estimated to increase 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 by 2022.
