Thanks to heightened consumer demands for electronics, mobile phones,
television set-top boxes, auto infotainment and industrial
electronics, the demand for semiconductors is expected to top the list
of the import bill, very much closing on oil. It is expected that by
2020, the import of electronics is expected to exceed $400 billion— an
Taking cognisance of this, the government of India rolled out its new
National Policy of Electronics 2012 (NPE 2012), offering fiscal and
infrastructure incentives. In addition, the government has also
expressed preferential access to locally-manufactured electronic
products. To attract domestic and global investments for the promotion
of electronic system design and manufacturing (ESDM) sector, the
government introduced a package of approximately $1.62 billion via its

Startups can always be tricky; there is no carved formula which will
guarantee its success. Any entrepreneur while ideating to establish a
company has to simultaneously figure out ways to keep their company
afloat. And in order to keep a startup running, the two obvious but
essential requirements are customers and a talented team. But for the
Silicon IP companies, there is yet an additional challenge that they
have to overcome in order to stay in the market - the gestation period
of product development and its acceptance.
The company is dedicated to give its best in every vertical it takes
up. It is also working on focusing on much higher speed category, and
achieve some of the best performance numbers in regards to that.

Escalating the Chip Market

IC Insights compared the six most notable end-user markets for ICs.
These are the computer, consumer, communications, automotive,
industrial/medical, and government/defense markets. During the time
frame, until 2018, the IC demand from automotive customers is foreseen
to canvas the strongest average annual growth — 10.8pc on average.
This is importantly higher than the communications industry, at second
place with 6.8pc. The computer market, once the IC growth driver per
se, apparently is approaching saturation status. With 3.3pc CAGR, it
shows the lowest growth of all segments (albeit certainly at a very
high sales level). In contrast, automotive chip demand is still
growing from a smaller base. While a high semiconductor content in
earlier years was associated to the luxury class, higher quantities of
chips are installedautomotive-ics-1 now in vehicles of all categories.
