IESA Vision Summit 2012 - Session Plan

Day 1 Sessions Speakers
8.00 to 9.30 am Registration
9.30 to 10.00 am Theme Address

Abstract: The semiconductor industry serves as a driver, enabler and indicator of technological progress. Developments in the industry determine the way we work, transport ourselves, communicate, entertain ourselves and respond to our environment. Conventional wisdom holds that companies in emerging markets face daunting obstacles when trying to expand internationally. According to this view, the same factors that make them successful at home - privileged relationships and assets, high tariff walls, and a captive market of local customers - inevitably work against them abroad. So what explains the rise of the emerging world's true global leaders, which operate diverse businesses profitably, at scale, and in a wide range of geographies? In reality, emerging markets, far from being a handicap, actually provide an invaluable springboard. The combination of demanding yet price-sensitive customers and challenging distribution environments can help determined companies develop the distinctive capabilities they need to compete successfully elsewhere.

11.30 to 12.00 Noon Keynote address 1 - Systemic Collaboration: Principles for Success in IC Design

As India’s evolving electronics ecosystem is increasingly influenced by software and systems development, the boundaries of physics, and shifts in global and domestic trends, its wide variety of stakeholders have an exciting new set of opportunities ahead. Yet the principles they will use to deliver innovative solutions and products remain as fundamental and universal as engineering itself.

12.00 to 1.15 pm Session 1 - India future of change: Design & Innovation-Change Drivers for India’s Semiconductor and Electronics Growth

As the Indian market evolves, the need arises for the ecosystem to orient itself towards product and design innovation. The Indian Electronics industry is investing more and more in Research & Development. The Indian market is expected to clock the fastest CAGR by 2020, more than double that of China and the triad of North America, Europe and Japan. With the total demand projected at USD 400 billion for FY 2020, there is significant potential to develop an electronics ecosystem in India. The India advantage is showcased by the number of Indian captives of global semiconductor companies that file patents every year. This indicates the level of IP being created.

2.00 to 3.30 pm Session 2 - Changing India, Venture by Venture

Entrepreneurs represent the promise of the future. They embody creativity and optimism; ability to exploit opportunities and capacity to overcome challenges. Some of the challenges for start-ups include market development, attracting and retaining good talent and access to equity financing. While policymakers want to promote an innovation agenda, the regulatory/political environment is a major challenge for start-ups. What are the factors that can foster innovation and create start-ups besides providing avenues for funding and encouraging generation of IP?

ICT & Electronics Manufacturing: The future is India

The domestic ICT and electronics manufacturing industry is at the cusp of change with huge growth opportunities. ‘Manufacturing’ has been recognized as the main engine for economic growth as per the Eleventh Five Year Plan of the Information Technology sector. However, the share of ICT & electronics hardware manufacturing has been stagnating at a low 17% of GDP for over two decades now. With an ambitious aim of taking this to around 25% by 2025, as per the draft National Manufacturing Policy, Govt. and industry focus needs to be further sharpened to augment growth in this industry. We need to together ensure we don’t miss this opportunity to some other countries in South East Asia. I see this is as opportunity for India to create value and catch up with countries like China.

There exist many challenges in making this industry truly attain its potential. Inadequate infrastructure, limited focus on value addition and exports, changing tax structure, limited focus on R&D and availability of funding mechanisms are some of these challenges. Domestic consumption will continue to surge and the gap between demand and supply will only widen if domestic production which is at present less than 45% of domestic consumption does not catch up. Further, the electronics exports are expected to reach $15 billion by 2014 and $80 billion by 2020. With the rising electronics import we may soon find the Electronic Import bill surpass the Oil Bill.

Ingredients for a Successful Fabless Indian Semiconductor Industry

Within India, there is growing frustration over India’s apparent delay in becoming a major player in the growing fabless sector of the semiconductor industry. The pressure will become more intense since India’s consumption of electronics is predicted to exceed $400 billion by 2020. Fortunately, the reality is actually quite encouraging for India. Dr. Rhines will show how India has all the elements in place to cultivate a vibrant, growing fabless semiconductor industry. He will provide insights and recommendations on how India can become a world presence in the fabless semiconductor industry.

Session 8: UK-India collaboration: perspectives on the opportunities and the challenges

The UK is a country partner for the IESA Vision Summit. There is significant knowledge and experience in innovation in the UK – especially in mobile communications systems design and consumer electronics, to name just two areas. India is emerging as a key innovator in the software products space, but with the new National Electronics Policy this opens up the doors for significant innovation for the Indian market too. This panel looks at the experiences of both UK and Indian companies in doing business and partnerships with each other, and how this might be exploited for the future benefit of both the Indian electronics industry and the UK.
