Leading SMF VRLA battery players

Sealed Maintenance Free Valve Regulated Lead Acid (SMF VRLA) battery is the most popular and environment friendly technology used in a host of applications. The battery market in India is worth Rs 100 billion, with SMF VRLA batteries contributing about 20-22 per cent of this turnover. In an effort to appreciate the Indian SMF battery manufacturers and importers, Electronics Bazaar carried an opinion survey based on the companies’ state of the art manufacturing capabilities, market share, service support and reach. We contacted experts in power electronics associations, traders and customers, who shared with us their preferences of leading SMF VRLA battery companies. While this list is by no means comprehensive, it provides a glimpse into India’s leading SMF battery companies. We are not ranking them, but only listing them in alphabetical order.

TOP 20 EMS players in India

“The Indian electronics industry, reportedly worth US$ 1.75 trillion, is the largest and fastest growing manufacturing industry in the world. It is expected to reach US$ 2.4 trillion by 2020. The demand in the Indian market was US$ 45 billion in 2008-09 and is expected to reach US$ 400 billion by 2020,” reads the Draft National Policy on Electronics, 2011. This is music to the ears of companies that are into electronics manufacturing services (EMS). Although the number of EMS companies are not significant in India, with the final policy on electronics expected by December 2011, many more companies are expected to venture into this domain. However, the current gap between the demand and supply is huge, which leaves room for some global EMS players to make significant investments in India. Global companies looking for the lowest production costs find India the second destination of choice (China still ranks as the ‘most preferred’) for manufacturing. Moreover, communication sector is one of the major segments driving growth in this industry. Some new sectors like medical electronics, followed by industrial and consumer electronics, aviation, automotive and defence are also driving growth in the EMS industry. While keeping track of the evolving scenario within the Indian EMS industry, Electronics Bazaar has attempted to rank the leading EMS players based on their revenue, to ascertain their growth. The revenues of these companies have been procured from the website of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), Government of India. Some of the companies could not be included as their revenues for the FY 2009-10 were not available; these included the MNCs as well. Also, during our research, we discovered that despite industry trends claiming growth, a number of companies have registered losses in the FY 2009-10. Disclaimer: While Electronics Bazaar’s editorial team has taken the utmost care to contact all possible sources to make this list of the top EMS companies comprehensive, we may have inadvertently left out a few companies from this list.

Leading distributors of electronic components in India

Driven by demand from consumer electronics, telecom and mobile devices and industrial electronics, electronic component industry is estimated to touch nearly US $10 billion this year. This growth gives an impetus to the businesses of the component distributors in India—both domestic and foreign companies. However, domestic players still find it tough to compete with the foreign companies in terms of reach, quality and price. Despite all hurdles, the electronic component distributors’ base in India is becoming stronger by the day, and to give a glimpse of this sector, Electronics Bazaar has attempted to list out the leading distributors in India. Our research is based on the turnover of the companies, feedback from industry experts and individual company inputs. Disclaimer: While Electronics Bazaar editorial team has taken utmost care to contact all possible sources to make the list comprehensive, we may have inadvertently left out a few companies from this list. We have also not included companies who are exclusively dealing in semiconductor components.By Richa Chakravarty Driven by demand from consumer electronics, telecom and mobile devices and industrial electronics, electronic component industry is estimated to touch nearly US $10 billion this year.

Top SMT players in India

Although Frost & Sullivan’s report estimates Indian SMT market to be around Rs 44.15 billion in 2012, with telecom and automotive being two major sectors driving demand for SMT equipment, the year 2011 was not as exciting for the Indian SMT industry, as was expected. The volatility in the financial markets, the European crisis, the still recovering economy of the US, the weakening rupee, high domestic interest rates, and the strengthening Japanese Yen added to the woes of the domestic electronics manufacturing sector. And, in turn, these economic problems had a profound impact on the SMT equipment market as well. As the fate of the SMT equipment market is closely intertwined with the electronics manufacturing industry, it directly influenced the sale of SMT equipment, narrowing down its growth rate. However, if the draft National Manufacturing Policy is implemented, the SMT industry hopes that 2012 will see some investments coming through in lighting, metering, and automobile industry, and hopefully, in mobile manufacturing as well. This, in turn, may bring some growth to the SMT equipment market. In this issue, Electronics Bazaar attempted to list out the top SMT players in India. In the process, we were faced with a number of difficulties. The editorial team could not procure revenue of majority of the SMT companies from any of the sources. Also, most of the companies in this segment being MNCs, could not share their India revenue with us. Hence, we had no option but to just list out the SMT companies in alphabetical order. While this survey is by no means comprehensive, it does provide a glimpse into many of India’s key SMT players in the market.

Leading wires and cables manufacturers

Owing to the high growth in the consumer electronics, automotive and telecom sectors, and with an encouraging power scenario in India, demand for wires and cables is growing rapidly. According to the Indian Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers’ Association (IEEMA), the potential of the wire and cable industry will be worth US$ 158 billion by 2015. Wires and cables industry can be divided into four main segments—house wiring, low tension wires, high tension and extra high voltage wiring. Wires and cables find application in almost every sector, however, the major demand comes from the automotive sector, process industry, telecom and power sector, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies, public sector undertakings and utilities, railways and defence establishments.
