Ranking the top electronic passive component manufacturers in India was quite a challenging task. While India continues to import 95 per cent of the components required for the electronics industry, it was interesting to discover an endless number of big, medium and small companies manufacturing components in the country. To this, we also added a long list of popular passive component brands that are only being traded in India.
By Srabani Sen & Richa Chakravarty
Thursday, July 25, 2013:At present, there are about 1600 electronic component manufacturers in India. While passive components account for about 20 per cent of the total electronic components market, wound components contribute about 80 per cent of the total passive components market. About 34 per cent of the demand for passive components is met through indigenous manufacturing and 66 per cent by imports. In India, it is primarily the small-scale industrial units that manufacture passive components.
Electronics Bazaar (EB) attempted to rank the top electronic component manufacturers in India, and conducted a survey in May 2013 to ascertain the leaders in this field.
A) We classified the companies into two categories:
(i) Those that manufacture passive components in India, and
(ii) Those that do not manufacture in India, yet their passive component brands are popular in India.
In the second category, majority of the companies are MNCs that just conduct trading operations in India, either through distributors or direct sales offices. Hence, their India sales revenues are not available. We, therefore, chose to rank them on the basis of a survey conducted by Electronics Bazaar in May 2013. The survey was conducted among the component distributors, electronics manufacturing services (EMS) companies and end-users.
B) Most of the companies ranked are exclusively into component manufacturing in India, while some are into multiple businesses in India.
C) Many companies like PLA, Andhra Electronics, Cedicom, OEN India, etc, could not be ranked as their revenue figures were not accessible. Some companies have also refused to disclose their revenue figures.
D) We have also not included companies that manufacture connectors like FCI OEN, Amphenol Interconnect, Phoenix Contact (India), etc, as we plan to rank them separately.
E) The revenue figures have been procured from the website of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), Government of India, and verified by the companies; some figures were also provided by the companies themselves.
F) We chose not to include Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) in the ranking as it is a multi-product and multi-unit company manufacturing various products besides components. Another company we did not include for the same reason is General Industrial Controls Pvt Ltd.
A) The survey was conducted across India to gauge the popularity of the component brands available in the country. The results of this survey have been shared in the table on page 45.
B) The survey revealed that the international brands are much more popular than the Indian brands.
While this survey is by no means comprehensive, we request our readers to share their feedback and help us make these reports more useful.
