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. This growth gives an impetus to the businesses of the component distributors in India—both domestic and foreign companies. However, domestic players still find it tough to compete with the foreign companies in terms of reach, quality and price. 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. Our research is based on the turnover of the companies, feedback from industry experts and individual company inputs. Disclaimer: While 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. We have also not included companies who are exclusively dealing in semiconductor components.By Richa Chakravarty 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.

Global trends in capacitors: Where does India stand?

Despite India having the manufacturing capability and the right technology, it still lags behind in the global market and is late in catching up with the global trends in capacitor manufacture

Indian components industry to be on upswing in 2012

Components industry is expected to touch nearly US$ 10 billion this year, which will be driven by sectors like IT/OA, consumer electronics, mobile devices, telecom, industrial electronics, etc.

Can Indian PCB industry outshine China?

India has the potential to lead the global market in PCB manufacturing. Should it imitate the growth in China to become a market leader?
Industrial-Auxiliary-Relay

Innovation in relays to meet needs of new applications

Relays have become relatively smaller in size and more cost effective, with longer life, greater dependability and higher capacity

Rising demand for components justifies local manufacturing

With the demand from the Indian electronics market becoming significant, local manufacturing of electronic components would make sense
chip resistors

Moving from leaded to chip resistors

Due to technological advancements, miniaturisation and cost advantages, electronics industry is moving away from leaded resistors and adopting chip resistors. Resistors are also being integrated into PCBs

PCB undergoing changes to meet advancement in defence equipment

Rapid technological changes in defence equipment are set to revolutionise PCB manufacturing in India. Local manufacturers are leaving no stone unturned in terms of innovations

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.

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.

Capacitors: What’s new in the market

Capacitor (condenser), a passive component for storing electric charge, is used as a part of electronic circuits for blocking direct current while allowing alternating current to pass and for smoothing the output of power supplies. An important component in electronic devices, capacitors should be chosen with utmost care. The Indian capacitor industry has very few manufacturers despite its wide applications. As demand outstripped supply, industry’s requirements are met by imports. This article is an attempt to give our readers an overview of the latest capacitors available in the market and the players offering them.

Modern electronic devices driving converter market

New types of converters are digitally controlled, with improved performance. These products are more efficient, smaller in size, with peak power capabilities

Popular LED component distributors & manufacturers

The applications of light emitting diodes (LEDs), a semiconductor light source, have increased over the past few years as they are being used in diverse areas. As we all know, an LED has many advantages over incandescent light sources including lower energy consumption, longer life, smaller sizes, quicker switching, and greater durability and reliability. Hence many countries, including India, have started scaling up production of LED products. The wide perception that the LED industry is a lucrative business in India, the demand for LED components such as LED chips, LED diodes and LED modules is likely to double. However, the country imports nearly 99 per cent of its LEDs. Electronics Bazaar carried out a survey and contacted a large number of companies that are into manufacturing different kinds of LED products, to find out the popular LED component distributors and manufacturers in India. These manufacturers have shared with us their preferred component distributors and manufacturers—based on product quality, credibility, reliability and costs. The survey clearly indicates that Cree, Osram, Edison, Nichia, Philips and Seoul Semiconductor are the preferred LED manufacturers, and that Semitech Opto Devices and Rabyte Electronics are the preferred distributors in India.
