Future Trends for Electronics Functional Testing in India

According to the Human Resource and Skill Requirements in the Electronics and Hardware Sector (2022) report by the National Skill Development Corporation, the Indian Electronics and IT Hardware sector production is expected to grow from 1,636 billion in 2012 to 7,521 billion in 2022 at a CAGR of 16.4%. Within the Electronics and IT Hardware sector, Industrial electronics is the second major export segment after electronic components with a significant share of 25% in total Electronic Hardware exports. This segment continues to be an important constituent from the perspective of applications for electronics and IT. The report highlights that manufacturing of related hardware in technology areas like PLC, distributed control systems, UPS, varied power electronic equipment and systems has been increasing in the country. The production of Industrial Electronics is expected to grow from 234 billion in 2012 to 1.380 billion by 2022.

This will have an increase in demand for professionals who are classified under this sector or industry. The NSDC report also suggests project human resource requirement for industrial electronics will increase from 1,68,000 in 2012 to 5,67,000 in 2022 for this segment. One of the job roles that will have a large positive impact of all these trends is a Functional Tester.
