Speaker Biography:

"India is emerging as one of the fastest-growing markets for electronic products powered by semiconductor chips. A majority of the $200 Billion market in India currently is fulfilled by global brands with a large percentage from China. Over the last decade, electronics manufacturing in India has also grown significantly and semiconductor manufacturing is also beginning to take root. Combining a very strong market demand, superior electronic and semiconductor design capabilities, and a fast-growing manufacturing ecosystem, it is India's time to become an Electronics & Semiconductor Products nation.

Products are the lifeline of any industry as they drive manufacturing, intellectual property creation, wealth creation, employment creation and long-term sustained development of ecosystem. In this talk Dr. Gupta will talk about making India an Electronics & Semiconductor Product Nation"
