Current Scenario of Electronics Industry in India

AlthoughIndiamajorly relies on imports of numerous electronics products, equipment and components from other countries, primarilyChina,JapanandTaiwan, 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

InIndia, the demand for electrical capacitor is expected to increase primarily due to rising demand for consumer durables, IT hardware coupled with use of electrical circuitry in diverse applications.

According to a recently published report byTech Sci Research"India Electrical Capacitor Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2019", the country's electrical capacitor market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 3.6% during 2014-19.

Indiahas grown multi folds in terms of electrical & electronic product manufacturing, and the revenue growth in these industries is the key driver for electrical capacitors market in the country, especially in southern and northern regions.These factors project a good increase in demand for professionals such as Auto-tester Capacitors.
