The semiconductor industry in India is witnessing substantial growth, projected to reach $64 billion by 2026, primarily fueled by advancements in the telecom and industrial sectors. 

The Indian government is proactively supporting semiconductor manufacturing through various measures, including the production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme. With an allocation of over $10 billion, the PLI scheme encourages semiconductor manufacturers to produce locally. 

In 2021, the government initiated the India Semiconductor Mission (ISM) with a budget of ₹76,000 crore aimed at promoting packaging and design units. Additionally, the scheme offers up to 50% fiscal support for establishing semiconductor fabrication units in India.

In the beginning of 2024, Union Minister Ashwini Vishnaw announced the approval of Tata’s semiconductor chip fabrication unit in Gujarat with an investment of approximately ₹ 500 billion. Additionally, Tata Electronics’ semiconductor assembly and packaging plant in Assam, received approval with a financial outlay of ₹ 400 billion. 

During the last quarter of the previous year, approximately 30% of the new global capability centers (GCCs) established in India were focused on the semiconductor industry. This indicates a rising interest in utilizing India’s local talent for activities like front-end design, performance testing, and post-silicon validation, as per a report by Nasscom-Zinnov. 

Key roles within the semiconductor value chain encompass ASIC design engineer, reliability test engineer, clean room technician, chip encapsulation specialist, PCB (printed circuit board) design engineer, RF test engineer, and thin film engineer. 

In recent developments, Tesla, the world’s largest automotive company, has entered into a strategic agreement with Tata Electronics to procure semiconductor chips for its worldwide operations.
