Current Scenario of Electronics Industry in India1

Although India majorly relies on imports of numerous electronics products, equipment and components from other countries, primarily China, Japan and Taiwan, the country's Electronic System Design & Manufacturing (ESDM) market has witnessed a significant transformation over the past few years.

In addition, the government's support of allowing 100% FDI in the electronics hardware manufacturing sector has provided an automatic route for increasing electronic component manufacturing, including electrical capacitors in the country.

Future Prospects and Latest Trends in Electronics Sector in India

The ESDM industry in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9 percent to reach USD 94.2 billion by 2015. This is more than twice the growth rate of the global ESDM market and presents immense potential for the domestic market. Job opportunities for professionals in this field such as Bare Board Testing Operators is expected to increase.
