IESA Vision Summit 2021 to Focus on India’s Accelerated ESDM Growth in the Coming Decade

Article By : India Electronics & Semiconductor Association

Now on its 16th edition, the Vision Summit will act as the platform where the industry leaders and policy makers will share their perspectives on India's electronics and semiconductor industry.

The India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA), India’s leading industry association for ESDM (electronics system design and manufacturing) sector, has announced its flagship event, Vision Summit 2021, from October 18–21, 2021. Now on its 16th edition, the event—featuring a power packed line-up of global leaders, experts, strategists, and policy makers—will act as the platform where the industry leaders and policy makers will share their perspectives on the defining decade of growth of the electronics and semiconductor industry by exploring and leveraging megatrends.

This year’s Vision Summit 2021 theme is “India’s Accelerated ESDM Growth: The Defining Decade.” The four-day summit will focus on critical topics such as strengthening the fabless design ecosystem; semiconductors supply chain challenges and opportunities; India’s ESDM roadmap for next decade; nurturing the start-up and MSME ecosystem; and focusing on contributions by women leaders of the ESDM sector. The Vision Summit 2021 will be inaugurated by the Honourable Finance Minister of India Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman along with few of the senior most policymakers from the Central and State Ministry and electronics leaders from across the globe.

“The annual flagship event, the IESA Vision Summit is round the corner. IESA is India’s ESDM leadership and knowledge partner, and we in IESA believe that this is the defining decade for India’s accelerated ESDM growth, which will contribute to about 10% of the country’s GDP by the turn of this decade,” said K. Krishna Moorthy, President and CEO, IESA. “The event has already assumed the marquee status with top policymakers and global thought leaders partaking as speakers over the years. With the pandemic making live conferences almost impossible, we are putting our best foot forward to bring a virtual/hybrid summit this year. We are working closely with the Government of India in many of its initiatives like PLI, CHIMS, and NFSM. IESA is also the ESDM knowledge partner for many states and our 3 reports – the ESDM market and opportunity report, the readiness of the states to drive ESDM growth, and the Semiconductor manufacturing supply chain opportunities for India will be the highlight of this year’s summit.”

Rajeev Khushu, Chairman of IESA, added, “The ESDM industry in the country has been moving at an accelerated pace driven by the ‘Make in India‘ for the world spirit. Electronic production is currently contributing 3.3% to the economy with a potential to reach $410 billion by 2025. At IESA, we are committed to growing the fabless start-up ecosystem and create 10 lakh jobs over the next five years. It’s our endeavor to support the creation of IP in India and support manufacturing to make the country the next destination for a vibrant design-led manufacturing hub. While we work closely towards India realizing the vision of a robust FAB ecosystem locally, we are also exploring the huge opportunity for India to start supplying processed raw materials to global fabs and ATMP’s and thereby expanding opportunities for equipment spares, services, materials & minerals industry in India.”
