According to a recent report from the ICEA, India's goal of manufacturing $300 billion worth of electronics by the fiscal year 2026 is expected to generate a demand for semiconductors worth between $90 and $100 billion, primarily driven by the country's mobile manufacturing sector.
Mohindroo underlined the requirement for proceeded with intense administration, much the same as what the nation has encountered over the course of the last 10 years, to drive India toward turning into a huge scope, global electronics manufacturing powerhouse force, aiming for the fourfold increment of 400%, like the development found in the previous decade.
