The demand for electronics hardware in India is expected to reach £400 billion by FY24. This presents a huge opportunity and a great incentive to boost electronic production.

Increasing domestic demand, rising disposable incomes, the Digital India initiative, growing manufacturing costs in other developing economies and escalated consumption patterns in the Middle East and emerging countries are driving global demand, thereby contributing to the growth of the Electronics Sector in India, the company had said.
