In this episode of the Perspective Prog. based on the ‘Semiconductor Industry & India’. Semiconductors are essential to almost all sectors of the economy including aerospace, automobiles, communications, clean energy, information technology and medical devices etc. Demand for these critical components has outstripped supply, creating a global chip shortage and resulting in lost growth and jobs in the economy. The shortage has exposed vulnerabilities in the semiconductor supply chain and highlighted the need for increasing domestic manufacturing capacity. India is aiming to become the global hub for Semiconductor Design, Manufacturing and Technology Development. Most global semiconductor design companies have already set up design and R&D innovation centers in India owing to exceptional semiconductor design talent pool. In December 2021 the centre govt sanctioned ₹76,000 crore under the production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme to encourage the manufacturing of various semiconductor goods within India.
