‘EBTop 15 UPS and inverter manufacturers’is our attempt to enlist the best-performing companies in this domain with regards to their revenue. The power sector has been witnessing a very healthy growth over the last fiscal and this is distinctly reflected in the companys’revenues.We commenced this process approximately two months back, when we compiled the list of all major and minor UPS and inverter players and started contacting them. Some companies were quite eager to be part of this initiative, whereas there were a few who refrained from disclosing their revenues as it is against their company policy. This time, we have also made two separate lists of the strongest players in the UPS and inverter segments, respectively. We, at Electronics Bazaar, hope that more and more players will participate in this exercise in our future issues.
Channel Partners play a key role in deciding the fate of the manufacturers. Hence, they hold a key position in the industry. Electronics Bazaar has been rating the manufacturers of different product segments, but it is rating the channel partners of the battery industry for the first time. We approached all major battery manufacturers to share with us their channel database. We then got in touch with the channel partners in every nook and corner of the country and received overwhelming responses. However, some manufacturers didn’t disclose their channel partners’list with us.We hope to get them to join us the next time we decide to conduct this activity.

Surface mount technology (SMT) has started creating waves in the country, which has been made conspicuous by the kind of amplification SMT players are experiencing in the Indian market. For the second time since our inception, we are conducting this study (last year, we carried it in the February 2008 issue) and are pleased that we have received a robust response this year as well. This is the second anniversary issue of Electronics Bazaar and we would like to extend our gratitude to all our readers for being appreciative of the ‘EB Top’ banner.

In the process of constantly moving ahead, one rarely gets time to think about the moments that led to the start of the journey, which has now come about a long way. And someday, when ‘a moment’ asks you to look back in time and take a simple recount of it, it does tend to make one nostalgic. Reminiscing about things long forgotten just like flipping through the pages of some forgotten diary, G.D. Saini, managing director of Singodia Electronics, shares his journey.
The test and measurement (T&M) industry in India is performing exceptionally well in the last few years. India’s recent success in space programmes has also boosted the market to a great extent. Moreover, the growth that India is witnessing in the telecommunications market is also giving a fillip to the industry. In this article, we are listing the Top 20 T&M players in India in terms of their revenue. This was an extensive exercise as we got in touch with more than 80 companies, both multinationals and indigenous firms. Some major firms like Agilent, Tektronics, Scientech Technologies could not be included in the list as they have not shared their Indian revenue. Agilent has shared their global revenue, which is worth $5.8 billion. According to Mahadevan Viswanathan, country manager, sales, Agilent Technologies, “India has been witnessing a good growth in T&M industry over the last couple of years. The growth is seen across all the served industry segments like telecom, aerospace, defence, automotive, consumer electronics, contract manufacturing and semiconductor. Telecom growth is mainly fuelled by increasing subscriber-base, domestic demand and new technologies like 3G, WiMAX & LTE. Aerospace and defence has been largely dependent on the T&M industry for their mission-critical testing needs for robust systems and homeland security.”

Electronic manufacturing services (EMS) or contract manufacturing has gained a lot of ground in the last couple of years in India. We have also witnessed that there are lots of indigenous players who have now taken interest in EMS. Here, it should be mentioned that the government of India has also taken noticeable initiatives to encourage the contract manufacturing business and they definitely deserve a pat in their back. There are a number of multinational companies like Jabil, Flextronics, Foxconn, Solectron, Celestica, Elcoteq and others who have set up their operations here during the last two to three years. This has sent out a clear signal to the world that India is evolving as an electronics manufacturing destination. We at Electronics Bazaar, took this opportunity to rate the top 15 EMS players in India, based on their country revenues. However, in this rating we are unable to include the multinational players (except Elecoteq, who have shared their Asia Pacific revenue), as they have not disclosed their country or region specific revenues. In this issue we initially wanted to cover Top 20 EMS players, but since we have got response from 16 companies, we are publishing the same. This endeavour from EB is an attempt to bring forward the players who have been performing consistently well over a period of time.
