Session 1: Opportunities in the next decade
Abstract: India is positioned as a key global player for the next decade. Market opportunities abound in areas like healthcare, telecom, wireless and consumer electronics. At this crucial time, it is essential to address the growing domestic market with support from policy makers. There are two major avenues for growth for designs from India –worldwide applications & products, and India-specific products. The India-specific market offers exciting options and benefits. Access to end-market provide the vital link. It also offers the benefit of volume. Equally significant is that capabilities can be used to ease some of the country’s pressing problems. The India-specific designs will find market in other developing countries in the world as well.


12.45 to 1.15 pm Session 2: Guest keynote:
Electronics: Fueling India in the new decade
The presentation brings forth the power of Electronics as key enabler in modern economy and how nations in the past have successfully leveraged it to generate leadership and wealth. It highlights the crucial interplay among various ecosystem players to enable growth of this vital industry and focuses on the ingredients and possible framework of its success. Highlighting the Indian Opportunity, the existing and future mega-trends in Electronics are presented, where India can play an important role both in the domestic as well as world markets.

1.15 to 2.30 pm Lunch  
2.30 to 4.00 pm Session 3: Overcoming challenges to succeed in Indian market
While the global electronics market is growing moderately, the Indian electronics market is growing at much faster pace and is likely to cross $100B by around 2015. A large percentage of the market is serviced by imports – design and manufacture. The India design, manufacturing and associated industries have begun to participate in this opportunity. This session brings perspectives from three organizations and leaders – ones that have either overcome various challenges and succeeded; or see the challenges and possibilities from further down the value chain including the eventual customer.


4.00 to 4.30 pm Coffee break  
4.30 to 5.30 pm Session 4: Embedded software – enabling Indian products to differentiate in global markets
Think embedded systems and several applications come to mind. Add to it flourishing electronics convergence, and one suddenly sees the increased appetite of the embedded system for consumer electronics, communication products, high-end industrial products and defense markets.
India is the undisputed leader in embedded software, in terms of both the execution of work and its contribution to overall design revenues. At a global level, India will continue to attract chip design work due to exceptional talent, program management and cost arbitrage.
In the future an important growth factor for embedded software companies is likely to be the localization of product design and manufacturing from India, which will drive significant investments from product and service companies. Interestingly Govt. has a dual role to play- both as a potential key customer driving key areas such as security; and as an enabler by initiating state-driven opportunities for this industry to grow in the domestic market.
