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.
However, with the rise in demand for components coming mainly from telecom, industrial, lighting, medical and defence sectors, local manufacturing of electronic components is likely to attract huge investments. And with the soon to be announced national manufacturing policy, this sector will certainly get the much needed boost to the manufacturing sector, whose contribution in the industry has remained stagnant so far.
Friday, August 12, 2011: Electronics Bazaar attempts to rank the leading component manufacturing companies based on their revenue, which were then verified from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), Government of India, website.
Some top companies like Vishay, Murata, AVX Corporation, Keltron, etc, could not be included in the ranking as their revenues are not available.
Therefore, this Top 12 list of component manufacturers may not be comprehensive. However, it does provide a glimpse into the leading component manufacturers of India.
