Growth of Electronics Sector in India

India?s consumer electronics market is estimated to touch 12,690 crore by 2022, up from an estimated 7,200 crore in 2015. The organized sector is likely to increase its market share from 90 percent in 2013 to 95 percent in 2022. Also, the increasing size of the Indian telecom industry is expected to encourage several foreign equipment manufacturers to establish manufacturing facilities in India.

Electronics & IT Hardware is one of the emerging sectors for employment growth in India. The industry currently employs over 4.3 million people across manufacturing, sales and marketing (including retail), and repair & maintenance segments. Policy initiatives on promoting manufacturing along with increasing disposable income would drive the growth for the sector. The industry is expected to witness an addition of 4.61 million personnel during 2013-2022, which indicates good job prospects for Assembly Operator (Telephone Equipment Mfg.) and other professionals.
