IESA and SIA Partner to Strengthen Public-Private Collaboration in Chip Ecosystem

Article By : Semiconductor Industry Association

SIA and IESA will form a private-sector task force that will strengthen US-India collaboration in the global semiconductor ecosystem.

The U.S. Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) and the India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA) have jointly announced plans to form a private-sector task force that will strengthen collaboration between the two countries in the global semiconductor ecosystem.

The task force aims to develop a “readiness assessment” regarding the semiconductor ecosystem in India. Another goal is to assemble industry, government, and academic stakeholders to identify near-term industry opportunities and facilitate longer-term strategic development of complementary semiconductor ecosystems.

The initiative also aims to make recommendations on opportunities and challenges to increase India’s role within the global semiconductor value chain, including chip manufacturing, as well as identify and facilitate workforce development and exchange opportunities to benefit both countries.

“We are thrilled to kick off this new initiative with IESA, our counterpart in India,” said SIA President and CEO John Neuffer. “India is already a major hub for semiconductor research, chip design, and equipment engineering, but its future potential is even greater. This task force will help identify tangible ways to unlock this potential by increasing collaboration between the U.S. and India within the global chip ecosystem.”

“IESA is excited to be part of this new taskforce in partnership with SIA,” said IESA President and CEO Krishna Moorthy. “It will be an important platform to bring together global resources to identify actionable plans to support India to increase its presence in the world-wide chip industry and then enable global collaboration to execute the plans across all segments of the design and manufacturing supply chain, as well as creating semiconductor talent for the world.”
