Industry Overview:

The Indian electronic systems design and manufacturing (ESDM) industry is on its way to achieving its full potential in terms of both production and design capabilities This indicates that the ‘Make in India’ initiative is beginning to have a positive impact on domestic manufacturing. Favourable business policies for the domestic electronics sector have undoubtedly played their part, particularly in facilitating the setting up of manufacturing facilities for smartphones, set-top boxes, televisions and other appliances. This presents an opportunity to the electronic components manufacturing industry of the country. Over the next five years, accelerated local manufacturing of electronic products to cater to growing domestic demand will drive the market for electronic components in India. The electronic components segment is likely to see bright days in the near future and exports of components are expected to grow as the government has increased the MEIS (Merchandise Exports from India Scheme) benefits for this industry. Also, the recent rise in the custom duties on LED lights, STBs, energy meters, flat panel TVs, mobile phones, microwave ovens, etc, will push up the demand for the components used in these products. With manufacturing costs in China rising and the industry growing in India, exports are bound to grow. The focus of programmes such as Make in India and Digital India is also shifting towards the ESDM sector.

Market scenario: According to Global Industry Analyst Inc., the global market for electronic components is expected to reach US$ 191.8 billion by 2022, by when Asia Pacific will have the dominant share of the pie. Following this global trend, the Indian electronic components market is also poised to grow significantly. This growth will be driven by rising local demand and growing disposable incomes. Moreover, adoption of high-end technology devices, technology driven transformations such as the roll out of 4G/LTE networks and the Internet of Things (IoT), policy and incentive boosts from the government, initiatives like ‘Digital India’, ‘Smart Cities’, wider broadband connectivity and e-governance programmes are all driving the accelerated use of electronic products. The growth of the electronic products industry has started driving the expansion of the electronic components industry as well.
Industry experts predict that over the next ten years, India’s own electronic components production ecosystem will be in a position to compete globally. The Indian automotive sector, particularly automotive electronics, will witness a tremendous boost, propelled by free trade agreements and venture capital funds. However, this will only be possible if the Indian electronic components industry can transform itself into the best-in-class manufacturing hub. The government has cut GST rates across electrical categories from 28 % to 18 % and this should accelerate the shift towards the organized sector, especially in categories like cables/wires, fans, switches and lighting, where the share of the unorganized segment is high. Implementation of the E-waybill 2018 would further accelerate this transition. Media reports suggest a cut in rates from 28 % to 18 % for durables as well –  this would have a positive impact on Lloyd ‘s sales in air-conditioners.
