Ahuja added, "While the report recognised domestic handset providers such as Micromax and Spice Mobiles as important contributors to the growth over the last year, setting up of their local manufacturing plants will add an important piece to the ecosystem that has been missing.

To firmly place the Indian semiconductor industry's growth on an upward trajectory, there should be high level of collaboration between various industry stakeholders, favourable government policies and incentives, industry-relevant academia programmes and giving impetus to entrepreneurs."

Neeraj Varma: We are confident of not missing the big opportunity to grow both Designed-in-India and Manufactured-in-India products.

Neeraj Varma, Country Manager Sales – India, and Australia/New Zealand, Xilinx Inc. said, "We have been witnessing a significant growth in the consumption of programmable devices in the Indian market.

This report goes on to further demonstrate the potential in this sector given that newer markets are emerging for programmable logic in areas where ASICs and ASSPs are being displaced by FPGAs."

Varma added, "As attested by this report, telecom sector has seen incredible growth due to the continued infrastructure builds by the operators that include the 3G build-outs. The forecast on the defence and aerospace segment is encouraging given our current and future products alignment to the needs of the Indian market. The manufacturing index of several sectors, however, needs to be improved.

With the collaboration of industry bodies such as the ISA and various Government agencies, we are confident of not missing the big opportunity to grow both Designed-in-India and Manufactured-in-India products."
