Domestic production catered to only 18% of the demand. This presents a significant opportunity for domestic component manufacturing. Through MAIT ETMS 2021, we are hopeful that India’s goal of emerging as leading electronics manufacturing country hinges on establishing a commensurate component manufacturing base for domestic and global consumption.”
Harish Krishnan, Vice President, MAIT, said, “As the global and domestic industry looks at de-risking supply chains, India is poised to emerge as a global hub for the electronics & telecom sector. Along with a thrust to domestic manufacturing, India must focus on promoting sourcing of components from India, designing electronics hardware in India and building a skilled workforce. The MAIT ETMS 2021 witnessed enriching discussions that will help India realise its vision of achieving USD 1 trillion of economic value using digital technology by 2025.”
