Overview of Electronics Sector in India

The electronic industry in India boasts a growth CAGR of 16.4%. The high growth rate has been supported by healthy Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows.

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 Electronics sector employed about 0.9 million in the year 2008 which is estimated to increase to over 4 million by 2022. This would translate to an incremental human resource requirement of about 3.2 million. It has been growing rapidly over the last couple of years and is expected to reach US$ 400 billion by 2020.

Among several challenges, shortage of skilled manpower has been identified as one of the most critical constraints that the sector is confronting. All these factors mean that there will be an increase in the employment opportunities of Through Hole Assembly Operators in towns and cities across India.
