The growth of the Indian electronics industry has triggered the expansion of electronic component industry as well. The electronic components produced in India include, among others, picture tubes, diodes, transistors, power devices, resistors, capacitors, switches, relays, connectors, magnetic heads, etc.
Electronic component industry: Current & future demand
The current demand (total available market) for electronic components
in India is estimated at US$ 9.2 Billion in FY 2009-10. This represents approximately 5.4 per cent of the global electronic component market. The demand is estimated to grow at an average yearly rate of about 12.5 per cent over the next three years and market size is estimated to be around US$ 15 billion in FY 2013-14. This growth will be driven by telecommunication, consumer electronics and automotive electronics industries.
|Type of Components||2007-08||2008-09||2009-10||2010-11||2011-12||2012-13||2013-14|
|Total||7.52||8.19 (7%)||9.20(11%)||10.35(11%)||11.85(13%)||13.21(12%)||14.72 (12%|
Types of electronics components (2009-10)
The Indian electronic component market is dominated by electromechanical components (like printed circuit boards, connectors, etc) and passive components (like wound components, resistors, etc). However, in recent times active components (like integrated circuits, diode, etc) and associate components (like optical disc, magnets, RF tuners, etc) have also witnessed significant growth.
Demand-supply scenario (2009-10)
The share of imports is higher for specialised and precision components like ICs, chip omponents, PCBs, LEDs, etc.
Demand-supply scenario (2009-10) by type of components
For components which do not require sophistication, India has established a near self-reliance. These components include cables, speakers, CRTs etc. India has also been exporting these components to other countries.
The value addition in electronic components is extremely limited as most of the raw materials are
either imported or are purchased at high cost.
