Semiconductor Industry – Sector Overview, Government Initiatives, Investments and Futures prospects

The Indian semiconductor market, valued at approximately $23.2 billion, is poised for substantial growth, with projections indicating it could reach $80.3 billion by 2028. This growth is expected to maintain a strong compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.10%. Recognizing the significance of the semiconductor industry, the Indian government has implemented various strategic measures and policies.

The ‘Make in India’ program, launched in 2014, promotes domestic manufacturing and positions India as a global manufacturing hub. To boost semiconductor production, the government introduced the $1.7 billion Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme for the electronics sector. India has a skilled pool of semiconductor design engineers, constituting roughly 20% of the global semiconductor design workforce. Construction for India’s first semiconductor assembly plant begins in October 2023, aiming for domestically manufactured microchip production by the end of 2024, supported by a $10 billion investment in chip manufacturing.


Semiconductor is the future and also the key part of developing any new technology. The increasing importance of this sector is echoed by the continuous investments from the public and private sectors alike and the growth opportunity for the colonies in this sector cannot be ignored. Careful analysis of the stocks for their core fundamentals and volatility to market fluctuations is however essential for any rational investment decisions.
