Future Expectations

Domestic demand of electronics in India is expected to reach USD 400 Billion by 2020. At the current rate of growth domestic production can cater to a demand of USD 100 Billion in 2020 as against a demand of 400 Billion USD and the rest would need to be met by imports. This aggregates to a demand-supply gap of USD 300 Billion by 2020. This sector is an important part of the economy of the country and has played a vital role in providing employment to millions of people and also improving the quality of life of people in the country. The increasing domestic demand projects a good increase in the number of jobs such as Field Engineer RACW in the field.
