The electronic goods industry is one of the fastest growing industries and is expected to be worth Rs 27.96 lakh crore (US$ 400 billion) by 2020. The Government is working on an export-oriented policy for electronic products. The idea behind this policy is to promote greater export of electronics and drive larger investments by setting up port-based electronic manufacturing clusters.

The Government of India has been supportive towards industry’s growth. It has set up Electronic Hardware Technology Parks (EHTPs), Special Economic Zones (SEZs) and has brought about a favourable climate for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). The Government has also increased liberalisation and has relaxed tariffs to promote growth in the sector. In addition, it has given the nod to Modified Special Incentive Package Scheme (MSIPS) under which the Central Government will be offering up to Rs 11,881 crore (US$ 1.7 billion) in benefits to the electronics sector in the next five years. Under the scheme, a subsidy for investment in capital expenditure is provided to the extent of 20 per cent of investment in SEZs and 25 per cent of investment in non-SEZs.

The growing customer base and the increased penetration in consumer durables segment have provided enough scope for the growth of the Indian electronics sector. Also, digitization of cable could lead to increased broadband penetration in the country and open new avenues for companies in the electronics industry.

Merchandise export decreased 4.78 per cent y-o-y to reach US$ 314.31 billion in FY20.

National Policy on Electronics (NPE), passed by the Union Cabinet in February 2019, envisaged the creation of Rs 27.96 lakh crore (US$ 400 billion) electronics manufacturing industry in the country by 2025. 32 per cent growth rate has been targeted globally over the next five years.

In August 2019, the Government permitted 100 per cent FDI in contract manufacturing through the automatic route.
