Today, usage of light emitting diode (LED) is becoming increasingly prominent—be it in lighting, displays or other devices. The fact that LED has a good shelf life has encouraged manufacturers to use it despite the fact that it is priced higher than other alternatives available. Acknowledging the trend that aspires for new technology, Electronics Bazaar highlights some of the top LED manufacturers and distributors in India in an effort to help buyers and sellers identify the best available LED sources in the country. We interacted with more than 60-70 reputed stakeholders of the LED realm and came up with a list of 15 top players in the sector. Some players were averse to disclosing their revenues, so this time, players will not be rated, but will simply be enlisted in alphabetical order. The revenues which were shared with us, however, have been displayed. We hope that our readers find this article useful and that more players will participate in future ‘EBTop' ventures.

‘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.

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.”
