Minister of State Mr Rajeev Chandrasekhar releases Vision Document (Volume-I) on “Increasing India’s Electronics Exports and Share in GVCs” Document released as part of MeitY’s vision 1000 Days for ESDM Sector towards achieving One Trillion Dollar Digital Economy.


The Vision document (Volume-I) focuses on the opportunities and key inputs to increase India’s share in the Global Value Chain and build large-scale manufacturing capabilities to achieve a substantial share in global electronics export. It has been prepared by Indian Cellular Electronics Association (ICEA) in consultation with the industry. The Vision Document is a call to action which analyses the challenges and outlines key success factors for increasing electronics exports, while benchmarking against competing nations. It makes recommendations to increase scale, competitiveness and domestic value addition over the next 1000 days.


Addressing the event and speaking about the transformation of electronics manufacturing space after pandemic, Mr Rajeev Chandrasekhar said that post covid world represents coming together of many things/elements including the renewed confidence under visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, policy making, investments, jobs and a strong preference for trust in Global Value Chains. These together present an unprecedented – never before opportunity for India in Electronics Sector. He further said that the industry needs to focus on expanding product categories which can serve new markets and new types of consumers. We are in a world where hardware plays less role in innovation and software plays more significant role. In this scenario India has the ability to use its strength in electronics design, systems design along with electronics manufacturing.
Commenting on collaboration with industry in realizing the vision, Mr Rajeev Chandrasekhar said that we will approach the industry as a partner and will fully support it in its efforts to increase the overall competitiveness of the economy. He quoted the Hon’ble PM’s Speech “ Yahi Samay Hai “, signifying the narrow window of opportunity available in the electronics sector.

Over 200 units are manufacturing cellular mobile phones and parts in the country which is up from only 2 units in 2014. Production of mobile handsets has grown from INR 19,000 crore in 2014-15 to 2,20,000 crore in 2020-21.
