Traditionally a strong growth market, however, the market contracted by 3.4 % in 2020, owing mostly to a decline in private expenditure triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. The global electronics industry has been valued at $2,288 billion in 2020. The industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2 % to reach $2,955 billion by 2025. Some of the critical factors driving this growth are increasing disposable income, improved acceptability of audio and video broadcasting, higher internet penetration, the inclination of the youth towards next-gen technologies, the emergence of e-commerce, etc. The EMS market was established more than five decades ago to execute manufacturing designs from government, defense, and research institutions. As the years progressed, the EMS market grew to support the demand that exceeded the manufacturing capacity of the Brands. Across nations, there is a strong government push to broaden the operations and revenue from the electronics industry. The government of India has been proactively building a base for electronics manufacturing in India and it has launched numerous incentive schemes, which have allowed manufacturing growth, reduced dependence on imports, and promoted exports. The GOI has launched numerous policies over the last few years to increase innovation, protect intellectual property, and develop the best-in-class electronics manufacturing set-up to build a favorable environment and invite investment in electronics hardware manufacturing. India’s electronics production has more than doubled in the past five years from Rs. 3.2 Trillion in FY16 to Rs. 7.8 Trillion in FY21 depending on such favorable incentive schemes. All of the above are expected to have a positive impact on the sector the company is operating in the long term.
