Overview of Electronics Sector in India

The electronic industry in India has grown from the production of 328 billion to 947 billion in the year 2009 at a CAGR of 16.4%. The high growth rate has been supported by healthy Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflow. FDI in Electrical Equipment (which includes Electronics) has varied from 17% to 22% of total inflow. According to the NSDC report, it is estimated that the demand for electronics (consumption) in India will be US $ 363 billion in 2015. Out of the Electronics & IT Hardware Industry, Consumer Electronics sector holds the highest percentage which is around 24% of human resource direct employment.

It is also estimated that the Electronics and IT Hardware industry has the potential to grow at a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of about 17% till 2022 and even thereafter considering the fact that the GDP is expected to grow at a rate of 7.5% to 8% over this period. Therefore, it is expected that the production of Electronics and IT Hardware will increase from 844 billion in 2008 to 7,520 billion by 2022. The size of Consumer Electronics industry has the potential to grow at a CAGR of 14% till 2022.
