India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA), India’s premier industry body in Semiconductors and ESDM (Electronics System Design and Manufacturing) sector, concluded the National Seminar on ‘Semiconductor in India: Challenges and Opportunity’. The event was attended by nearly 500 engineering students and was addressed by senior officials from the government, industry captains, accomplished academia and process specialists. The two-day seminar was organized in association with the Government of Gujarat and Pandit Deendayal Energy University (PDEU), Gandhinagar.
The conference addressed various aspects, including different facets of semiconductor
manufacturing, establishment of Fabless entities, OSAT processes & facilities, expanding Indian electronics manufacturing, as well as building a strong supply chain for the nation’s ESDM industry. The national seminar held discussions that will establish the path for semiconductor manufacturing in India, as well as explored its scope and potential future problems, by bringing significant figures from the industry, academics, and government together on a single platform.
Vivek Tyagi, Chairman IESA says, “We were actually elated to see the participation of the young engineering students of our nation besides so many takeaways from all the participants. The two-day seminar is a testimony to IESA’s vision to nurture and grow the semiconductor and ESDM industry in India.
Anurag Awasthi, Vice President IESA says – As India’s semiconductor market is expected to more than double between 2021 to 2026 and tentatively touch US$ 64 billion, it is an imperative to ideate, and spread awareness about the policies, current scenario, likely challenges and possibilities in this crucial space which nearly affects all sectors.
The conference successfully brought together thought leaders to discuss the waypoints of
India’s emergence as a worldwide leader in ESDM through constructive discussions. The
discussions encompassed needs of the sector, imminent challenges and corresponding
solutions that could be adapted to map a route to long-term success”.
The two-day seminar was a resounding success as we envision the roadmap for the
semiconductor industry in India.
