Hong Kong to import electronic components from India

Hong Kong is eager to import consumer electronic components from India and intends to set up assembly plants in India once the deal gets through. This could be a real deal-clincher since Hong Kong is the world’s eighth largest...

Leading PCB Manufacturers in India

The Indian printed circuit boards (PCBs) industry has witnessed rapid changes in the last few years with the entry of foreign players in the Indian market, who manufacture multi-layer PCBs in large quantities. At the same time, home grown companies have also technologically upgraded themselves to become more competitive in price. According to the Indian Printed Circuit Association (IPCA), demand for PCBs is expected to increase by 20 per cent not only in India, but even across the globe, in the next few years, further widening the demand and supply gap. Though India currently has about 60 large and medium sized PCB manufacturing plants, lack of relevant policies result in insufficient investments in PCB manufacturing. This is also one of the reasons for the short supply of PCBs in India. It is, therefore, necessary for Indian PCB makers to think strategically to not only meet domestic demand, but also compete in the world market. Hopefully, with the announcement of the new manufacturing policy, the growth of the Indian PCB industry is likely to accelerate as many companies are likely to expand their production capacities. Electronics Bazaar did a survey in the electronics industry, particularly among the EMS and SMT companies, SMEs and other manufacturers of electronics goods, to find out the leading and the most preferred PCB manufacturers in India. The survey was conducted based on certain parameters like reliability, customer satisfaction, and intention of the user to recommend the brand and its product quality. In the survey, AT&S emerged as the first choice, followed by other manufacturers such as Ascent Circuits, Shogini Technoarts, Garg Electronics, Epitome Components, Genus Electrotech, etc (see box below). While this survey is by no means comprehensive, it does provide a glimpse into many of India’s key PCB manufacturers. We have not ranked the companies but have only listed them in alphabetical order.

Leading PCB manufacturers

The Indian PCB industry has a significant role to play in the country’s economy, especially considering its huge domestic market. The key elements on which Indian PCB companies should focus are capital, consolidation, technology improvements, quality and a global delivery model. Based on these parameters, Electronics Bazaar contacted the industry experts and electronics associations, who shared with us their preferences of leading and emerging PCB players. While this list is by no means comprehensive, it would provide you a glimpse into many of India’s better known PCB companies. We are not ranking them but only listing them in an alphabetical order.

Top 12 Component Manufacturers in India

Components manufacturing industry in India has not yet taken off in a big way. India still imports a significant amount of components, even though many multinational companies have set up manufacturing units for electronics products in the country. Today, the country imports about 95 per cent of its components for the electronics industry, pushing the cost of manufacturing to a higher level, and ultimately raising the cost of the end products. Also, since there is no duty on importing components, there are more traders than manufacturers in India.
