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.

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.

Leading CCTV camera manufacturers in India

According to Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), the video surveillance and closed circuit television (CCTV) camera market in India is likely to reach Rs 22 billion by 2015. Growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 30 per cent, this industry is going to emerge as a huge market in the coming years. Currently, demand from the government and the public, followed by the industrial and commercial sectors, has fuelled the growth of the CCTV camera market. The Indian electronics security industry is largely imports based with a handful of indigenous manufacturers struggling to survive in a market full of giant global players and an unorganised open market. Though this segment still has a long way to go to match the standards of the developed world, it is expanding fast. Electronics Bazaar highlights the prominent CCTV camera manufacturers, the leading CCTV camera distributors and the leading CCTV camera brands in India. Unfortunately, since the revenues of most of the companies could not be procured, we could not rank the companies. Hence, we have featured them alphabetically. Disclaimer: While the 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.
