Building India’s Export Competitiveness in Electronics–2025-26: From Assembly to Manufacturing Hub: Call to Action Report
The need to create a globally competitive electronics industry that meets international standards of excellence and efficiently caters to both the domestic and export markets has always been a priority for the country. Accordingly, the National Policy on Electronics (NPE), 2019, and its precursor in 2012, laid down certain goals to significantly boost domestic production by encouraging and driving capabilities in the country for developing core components and creating an enabling environment for the industry to compete globally. Against this backdrop, NPE, 2019, set an aspirational target for the electronics industry to achieve a turnover of US$ 300 billion by 2025-26, which, in turn, would entail a fourfold increase in electronics production between 2020-21 and 2025-26. In this context, NCAER, prepared a Call to Action Report, for the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), to assess the current scenario of the electronics industry and propose recommendations for policy interventions to facilitate achievement of the NPE goals and build export competitiveness in the country in a span of 1000 days.
