Semiconductors

Overview

The semiconductor sector is a sub-segment of the rapidly growing Indian electronics industry. Semiconductors are used in a variety of end-user industries such as information technology, office automation, automobiles, mobile devices and telecommunication equipment.

With the Indian government pushing initiatives like ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India,’ the semiconductor sector is poised for further growth. The government is hoping to make the semiconductor sector a self-reliant industry in India and reduce the sector’s dependence on imports. More than 27 million jobs are expected to be created in the semiconductor sector over the next few years with increased thrust from the Indian government.

The Semiconductor Sector in India: A Snapshot

Key Stats
  • The Associated Chambers of Commerce of India (ASSOCHAM) estimates that the Indian electronics and hardware industry is expected to reach US$112-130 billion by 2018
  • Mobile devices are expected to register the growth rate
  • The Indian government has allowed 100% foreign direct investment in electronics systems design and the manufacturing sector under the automatic route
Challenges
  • Heavy reliance on imports for technology
  • Although there are a number of manufacturing bases for electronics, there are very few semiconductor manufacturing bases in India
  • Massive demand-supply gap
  • The semiconductor is exposed to high supply chain risks
Trends for the future
  • The use of locally developed semiconductors will increase in low cost space missions
  • There will be increased focus on creating an eco-system for high-end innovation
  • Electronics industry is expected to touch a valuation of US$2.4 trillion by 2020
  • Growth sectors such as health care, automotive, and consumer goods will further boost semiconductor consumption in India
  • Semiconductor companies will see increased collaboration with start-ups

Selective Consultants in the Semiconductor Sector

The semiconductor industry is a capital-intensive one. But with the government identifying this sector as a crucial cog in its aim to make India less dependent on imports, the sector will need trained professionals.

We understand that the sector requires high-quality engineers who are skilled in semiconductor design and verification. We identify demand in mechanical design, automation, and process instrumentation.
