In his T-shirt and bermudas, the man waiting for me at the Gurgaon DLF Golf Course gate, didn’t seem to be heading one of the largest inverter companies in India. His casual attitude and simplicity did not match with the fact that he lit up millions of homes in the country at a time when power outages were at their peak, and the only branded company, Videocon, had stopped manufacturing inverters in the country. Meet the man who personifies entrepreneurial zeal, to whom no challenge is an obstacle, and who is surging ahead with the one and only aim in life—to do something different and to turn every challenge into a success story—he is Kunwar Sachdev, founder and managing director of Su-Kam...

The battery industry in India has more than doubled in the last four years and is still expanding at a rate of 13.4 per cent per annum till 2014. This growth can be attributed to the automotive segment as well as to other industrial sections, which are powered by inverter and UPS like telecom, railways, power and other industries. With the country facing power shortage in several pockets, the usage of inverters and UPS has gone up significantly, increasing the usage of batteries as well. In an effort to appreciate the Indian battery manufacturers, we at Electronics Bazaar contacted a large number of industry experts and electronic associations, who shared with us their preferences of battery brands. The result of which is an unbiased listing of leading battery manufacturers in India. We are not ranking them, but only listing them in an alphabetical order
Component traders play a major role in the electronics industry as most manufacturing needs depend on them. They help in providing a varied range of components and offer assistance in choosing the right components. Also, most traders are a one stop-shop for both active and passive components, and are always ready to help the manufacturers with their sourcing needs. In order to appreciate and encourage their efforts in the industry, Electronics Bazaar contacted a large number of industry experts and electronic associations, who shared with us their preferences and ultimately it led to this list of leading component traders.
The printed circuit board (PCB) industry in India has come of age in the last decade. Earlier, there were but a few multilayer PCB manufacturers in India but the scenario has changed now, with a number of players who are not only making quality PCBs but are also making them in large quantities. The Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India, expects the Indian PCB industry to register a 30 per cent growth per year for the next five years. The main demand drivers for PCBs are consumer and industrial electronics and computers and all of them are growing at a rate of 6-7 per cent. Indian manufacturers are providing PCBs in India at more reasonable rates than those of the Chinese products. Many companies have expanded their production capacities four-five times over. In an endeavour to acknowledge and applaud the strength of this sector, we conducted an exercise to list the major Indian players of this industry. We contacted various PCB manufacturers, PCB associations and customers to ascertain which players are making a mark in this industry and came up with a list of leading PCB players. The prominent companies in the PCB manufacturing domain given below have been listed in alphabetical order and have not been ranked on the basis of revenue.
Soldering and desoldering is a large and important part of the electronics industry, having application areas in almost all of its segments. Leading Brands Electronics Bazaar decided to conduct a survey to ascertain the leading firms of all the various soldering and desoldering categories. As most of these brands do not have a direct sales office in India, they are disseminating their products and services through qualified distributors who provide assistance and after sales services to buyers on the manufacturers’ behalf. We contacted 60 players of the industry and asked them who, according to them, are the leading players in the soldering/desoldering industry and came up with a list of top players. Leaders in the small soldering irons and stations category and in the large soldering stations domain are enumerated in the table below in alphabetical order. We hope our initiative will be beneficial and enjoyable for the readers of Electronics Bazaar.
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.
