South Korea advances industrial ties with India and US

 

South Korea has held separate talks with India and the US to strengthen its defence industrial and technological alliances with the two countries. The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) in Seoul said the talks were held on 24 April in New Delhi and on South Korea’s southern Jeju Island respectively. DAPA said the one-day seminar in India was aimed at “stimulating defence exports” to India and supporting defence industrial partnerships between the two countries. DAPA said that during the event two defence memoranda of understanding (MOUs) were signed. The first featured an undertaking by South Korean firm LIG Nex1, which specialises in electronics and missiles, and Indian company Adani Defence Systems and Technologies to collaborate on marketing and production activities in support of sales to the Indian military.

Beyond the free trade idealism

 

The U.S. has begun trade skirmishes with India. It objects to India increasing import duties on electronic goods and wants India to reduce duties on U.S.-made motorcycles. Meanwhile the World Trade Organization seems to be in the intensive care unit. It is time to apply fundamental principles to reshape a trade regime that is fair to all. On free trade: The macro-economic case for free trade is that if each person would do only what he or she does better than everyone else and all would trade with each other, everyone’s welfare will increase. Also, the size of the global economic pie would be larger because there will be no inefficiencies. The problem is that, at present, many people in the world are doing what others, in other countries, can do better than them.

50% local sourcing likely for companies to book EV ride under FAME-II

 

The government will insist that electric vehicle makers source at least 50% of their components locally if they want to avail of its incentive programme and bid for its orders, even as it looks to promote local manufacturing and discourage imports.  An inter-ministerial steering committee led by Niti Aayog chief executive officer Amitabh Kant has decided that only companies that meet the 50% localization threshold will be eligible for the incentives that will be available under the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME-II) scheme to boost electric mobility as well as the ‘Make in India’ initiative.  “Government will not use taxpayers’ money to subsidies imports but will push for 50% localization content as we want to promote local manufacturing,” Kant told ET.  The steering committee, which held its first meeting on April 1, has finalized the mission’s approach to make domestic industry competitive at the global level.

 SECTION I - POLICY SCAN                                                         

 

ELCINA has taken initiative to set up a Task Force on Electronic Components to promote investments, value addition and manufacturing in this critical segment of the ESDM sector. The Task Force is comprised of legends of Component industry along with senior officials from Ministry of Electronics & IT, DPIIT and Invest India.

 

Components are the building blocks for electronics manufacturing and in their absence it is not possible to establish a self-sustaining and vibrant ESDM industry At present our electronic component industry is inadequate to cater to our market and we suffer extreme dependence on imports. This adversely impacts our self-reliance, security and economic interests.

 

A suitable policy must support large investments in manufacturing facilities for raw materials, parts, components and PCBA/EMS for electronics. This is the segment of the ESDM value chain where there is concentration of technology and requires R&D, IP creation and continuous and consistent investments if we want to create a resilient value chain in the country. This is the only way to reduce our dependence on imports and also reduce the insecurity and uncertainty which accompanies it.

 

Challenges for Component manufacturing in India

  1. Adverse Impact of various trade agreements signed by India such as ITA-1, CEPA, ASEAN FTA etc.

  2. Allowing zero duty imports of inputs/components for the assembly of high volume and high growth products such as mobile phones, PoS Machines, Micro ATM’s, Set Top Boxes etc. has depressed growth in demand of components and discouraged new investments in the segment.

  3. Disabilities caused by High Cost of Finance, Energy and Logistics increase corresponding to value addition. Capital Output ratio and value addition is high in component manufacturing and thus manufacturing disabilities faced are higher making investments unviable.

  4. Duty Free imports of PCBA’s reduce the demand for domestically manufactured PCB & components.

  5. Existing eco-system of component manufacturing in the country lacks global scale and capability and thus remains uncompetitive. It requires huge infusion of capital and technology and support from the eco-system.

New Delhi’s views on China’s Belt and Road Initiative is bad for India’s private sector

 

Various reports indicate that this time again New Delhi has decided to skip Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) summit taking place between April 25 and 27 in Beijing. Close to 40 heads of states or governments are attending the meeting. These include all 10 ASEAN nations, most Central Asians, Russia, Egypt, Italy, Portugal, Pakistan, Switzerland and the UAE among others. Many others are participating at ministerial or official levels. Instead of developing a coherent Indian strategy to deal with the Chinese BRI challenge, just not attending a meeting even at a lower level shows a lack of understanding and preparedness. Negative official narrative about the BRI may also influence Indian private sector not developing strategies to take advantage from emerging opportunities in the neighborhood. Once the governmentally-driven geopolitical phase of hard infrastructure is over, private companies will take over. If by then Chinese, European or ASEAN companies have taken over major operations, it will be too late Indian companies to enter.

Why Consumer Durable Cos are emphasizing on Make In India products

 

Once upon a time, when one needed information, they sought the local library; made a whole day of it too, bundling up with snacks to get them through the day. However, those times have now become obsolete, with smartphones providing all the information one could ever need, at just a click of a button. Consumer durables in India have come a long way, with new appliances making life more and more convenient each day. A rise in disposable income and growing social influence in the middle class has given the segment, the ability to splurge. This was followed by an increase in the import of electronic goods to the US to $53 billion in 2018, according to a report by the Indian Brand Equity Foundation.

All you need to know about EVMs and voting process

 

With a day to go for the third phase of Lok Sabha elections, we have compiled some interesting facts about Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs). An EVM consists of a control unit and a balloting unit connected together by a cable. The control unit belongs to a polling officer while the balloting unit is kept in a compartment to cast votes. After the polling is over, the results can be known instantly at the counting station by pressing the "result" switch which is located in a sealed compartment of the control unit. EVMs are manufactured by two Central government undertakings - Bharat Electronics Limited and Electronics Corporation of India Limited. EVMs were first used at 50 polling stations in a by-poll at the Parur Assembly constituency in Kerala in May 1982. EVMs could not be used after 1983 after a Supreme Court ruling that necessitated legal backing for the use of voting machines.

What went wrong at e-commerce unicorn Paytm Mall

 

In December last year, when board members of Indian e-commerce company Paytm Mall met to take stock of its business, they were in for a shock. The e-commerce entity had burnt roughly $150 million to $200 million in the September-October period - the traditional Diwali sales window - on cash backs and marketing, sources said. The cash burn, though, wasn’t helping it to make a dent in the wider e-commerce landscape dominated by Amazon and Walmart-owned Flipkart. The largest investor in the company, Chinese e-commerce behemoth Alibaba, realised then that Paytm’s volumes, driven largely by cash backs, would not be a sustainable business. Paytm’s pure-play e-commerce business required massive investments in warehousing and logistics for scale, and cash backs in such a scenario were proving to be a drag. That is when Alibaba started pulling the plug, asking Paytm’s management to build what they had initially set out to do — create a platform that enables Paytm’s core payments offering by facilitating a sticky merchant ecosystem.

Mobile phones, consumer electronics lift Reliance Retail

 

India’s largest retailer Reliance Retail’s cellphone and consumer electronics retailing business crossed the $5-billion revenue mark in the year to March, underscoring the breadth of its market presence. Sales in these two categories — which account for about a third of the total — through Reliance Digital and Reliance Jio stores more than doubled to Rs 39,170 crore in FY19 from Rs 15,154 crore in FY18, according to the company’s investor presentation made to analysts. Reliance attributed the growth to having the largest network of stores and enjoying a first-mover advantage in many cities. New brand introductions in mobile phones and air care (air conditioners, air purifiers and air coolers), such as Lloyd and Godrej, helped the retailer outpace market growth rates across key categories. The contribution of smartphones and consumer electronics retailing increased to 30% of total sales in FY19 compared with 21.9% in the year earlier, as per the presentation. The connectivity business, which includes Reliance Jio Infocomm subscriptions and recharges, was the largest at 33.5% (Rs 43,739 crore) of total retail sales and grocery was third at 17.9% (Rs 23,371 crore), the company said.

Movers And Shakers of The Week [15-20 Apr]

 

The week started with a rating system report for working conditions in India’s digital economy by Fairwork Project, part of the Oxford Internet Institute. In India, the Fairwork study was focussed around 12 major internet companies including Flipkart, Dunzo, Bigbasket, Zomato, Swiggy, UrbanClap, Housejoy, Rapido, UberEats, Uber, Ola and Foodpanda. The companies were ranked on the basis of five parameters including fair work, fair conditions, fair contracts, fair management, and fair representation. The rankings also accounted for whether a company pays fair minimum wage, and ensures the health and safety of its workers. Cab aggregators Ola and Uber, as well as, food delivery platform Foodpanda (acquired by Ola) scored the lowest in the Fairwork rankings. At the same time, Flipkart, Dunzo and BigBasket were the top performers. Further, another bang in the Indian startup ecosystem came with a Moneycontrol report saying that a new CEO is likely to replace Flipkart’s CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy soon and a formal announcement is expected around Walmart’s shareholders’ meeting in the first week of June.

Task before the next Govt: Boost investment driven growth

 

Both the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have revised their growth projections downwards for India in 2019-20. While the World Bank’s forecast for India’s GDP growth is 7.5 per cent, the IMF’s forecast is a notch lower at 7.3 per cent. The World Bank has pointed out that India’s slow export growth in the past five years has been due to its GDP growth being “too much” driven by domestic demand. Hence its advice for the next government is to focus on export led growth. The IMF, on the other hand, in its World Economic Outlook released recently has raised the fear of a slowdown in global output growth.

With Reliance planning entry and Amazon & Flipkart spending big, CLiQ may lag

 

Analysts: The investment by Tatas into their e-commerce venture Tata CLiQ pales in comparison to Amazon and Walmart-owned Flipkart. Latest regulatory filings show Tatas invested Rs 292 crore in FY19 in Tata UniStore, the entity which owns the ecommerce marketplace. Though investment was up by 30% from FY18 (Rs 224 crore) as per the filings made to the Registrar of Companies (RoC), analysts said with such low investment it might be difficult for Tata CLiQ to win market share in the Indian e-commerce market with the cash-rich Reliance Retail, too, planning a mega entry.

Recycling of e-waste in India and its potential

 

Electronic waste (e-waste) typically includes discarded computer monitors, motherboards, mobile phones and chargers, compact discs, headphones, television sets, air conditioners and refrigerators. According to the Global E-Waste Monitor 2017, India generates about 2 million tonnes (MT) of e-waste annually and ranks fifth among e-waste producing countries, after the US, China, Japan and Germany. In 2016-17, India treated only 0.036 MT of its e-waste. About 95 per cent of India’s e-waste is recycled in the informal sector and in a crude manner. A report on e-waste presented by the United Nations (UN) in World Economic Forum on January 24, 2019 points out that the waste stream reached 48.5 MT in 2018 and the figure is expected to double if nothing changes. Only 20 per cent of global e-waste is recycled.

Panasonic India eyeing 20% share in full-frame mirror less camera segment in a year

 

Consumer electronic major Panasonic India is aiming to garner around 20 per cent market share in the full-frame mirror less camera segment with sale of around Rs 100 crore within a year, a top company official said. The company, which forayed into the full-frame mirror less camera segment Monday, extending its portfolio of imaging business, expects rising demand for better image quality from business segments such as wedding, advertising, fashion to help it capture the market share.  "The potential of the DSLR market is around Rs 2,000 crore in our country in which the full-frame camera range is around 25 per cent, which is roughly around Rs 500 crore to 600 crore," Panasonic India President and CEO Manish Sharma told. He further added: "Utilising this, we are expecting a revenue of around Rs 100 crore with 20 per cent market share in the full-frame mirror less camera market within the first year."  A mirror less camera does not require a reflex mirror, unlike DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) cameras. A full-frame mirror less camera uses digital sensor of large 35 mm format, as by high-end DSLR cameras.

The Madras High Court had, in an ex-parte order, prohibited the download and use of the popular mobile video-sharing app. The government had been directed to prohibit downloading of TikTok and had prohibited the media from telecasting the videos made using TikTok Mobile App. The court also asked the Centre to answer whether the Union of India will enact a statute, like the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, enacted by the United States, to prevent the children becoming cyber or online victims. A Madras High Court bench comprising of Justices N Kirubakaran and SS Sundar appointed senior advocate Arvind Datar as independent counsel in the case. Datar’s appointment was directed in order to examine the implications of the TikTok app.

India’s Microcontroller Trends

 

India’s semiconductor market share is hardly representative of  its size, both in terms of geography and in its tag as being a technology design services region. India’s semiconductor market share is hardly representative of its size, both in terms of geography and in its tag as being a technology design services region. However, in the last 7-8 years the demand for semiconductor chips in the Indian market has grown fast, especially when compared to the global average. Mobile phone manufacturers are now importing chips and components as well as doing basic printed circuit board assembly in India, instead of assembling knocked down parts of mobile phones.

Apple in talks with potential suppliers of sensors for self-driving vehicles

 

Apple has held talks with at least four companies as possible suppliers for next-generation lidar sensors in self-driving cars, evaluating the companies’ technology while also still working on its own lidar unit, three people familiar with the discussions said. The moves provide fresh evidence of Apple’s renewed ambitions to enter the autonomous vehicle derby, an effort it calls Project Titan. The talks are focused on next generation lidar, a sensor that provides a three-dimensional look at the road.
Apple is seeking lidar units that would be smaller, cheaper and more easily mass produced than current technology, the three people said. The iPhone maker is setting a high bar with demandsfor a “revolutionary design”, one of the people familiar with the talks said. The people declined to name the companies Apple has approached.

‘85% Users are Adults... We’ve Removed 6m Videos’ Off App Stores, but Millions Using TikTok

 

The government ban on ByteDance-owned social media app TikTok has forced the seven-year-old Chinese startup to look into user safety rather than just growth in daily active users (DAUs) and monthly active users (MAUs). Breaking their silence for the first time on the ban, in an exclusive interaction with ET, Zhen Liu, SVP, corporate development, ByteDance, said: “Promoting well-being of the content creators and users is our priority. We are not just looking at DAUs or MAUs but the well-being of users.” Liu insisted to ET: “Eighty five percent of the users are adults. Short videos and usergenerated content is an important strategy for us. Mobile internet penetration is also picking up in India and the videos are becoming a lifestyle for people to express themselves and interact with others.”

Retail, Telecom to Support RIL’s Journey on Bourses

 

The muted earnings growth from Reliance Industries’ core energy vertical in the quarter ended March may narrow the performance gap between the company’s stock and the Nifty 50 index. The Reliance stock has outperformed the Nifty by 15% in the past three months and contributed to about 25% of the index’s gains. Profit in the quarter was better than the Bloomberg consensus estimate, but the quality of earnings may weigh on investor sentiment as it was driven by higher other income and lower tax rates. The company’s capital expenditure was almost Rs 1.32 lakh crore in FY19 as it continued to invest in Reliance Jio Infocomm, its digital business unit, and Reliance Retail, its organised retail venture. As a result, the company’s debt increased by over 30% to Rs 2.87 lakh crore at the end of FY19.

Opportunities in the Indian Defence Market, 2019 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

 

India's defence sector has been growing at a modest pace for the past few years. Modernisation of the armed forces and indigenisation of manufacturing have emerged as focus areas. The segment is receiving the much-needed push under the Make in India programme. The concept of import substitution is being gradually accepted by stakeholders. This is an opportune time to embark upon a new phase of self-reliance in the sector by manufacturing technologically advanced equipment within India. Defence production in India is gradually heading towards private sector participation. Between 2015-16 and 2018-19 (April-October), out of a total 188 contracts, 121 contracts have been signed with Indian vendors including DPSUs/PSUs/OFB and private vendors for capital procurement of defence equipment.

India and Australia helped make up for Chinese solar retreat last year

 

The world had more than half a terawatt of PV generation capacity at the end of last year as emerging solar markets picked up the slack caused by Beijing’s subsidy about-turn to the tune of a 20% rise in installations outside China. India’s critical role in the global adoption of solar power has been highlighted in a study into the amount of new PV capacity installed worldwide last year. However, although the nation was the largest emerging PV market last year, there is little doubt about which country the Photovoltaic Power Systems Program’s latest report considered the star of 2018. The International Energy Agency-run research program said PV installation “increased spectacularly” in Australia to almost 3.8 GW last year, contributing to a 20% rise in new solar generation capacity added outside China in 2018. The retreat of new solar capacity in China – the world’s biggest market – to 45 GW was compensated for by a rise in most other emerging markets as the world saw a modest, 900 MW rise in new PV installations from 98.9 GW in 2017 to 99.8 GW last year.

“Indian Printed Circuit Board Industry & Market Research Report

The evolution of miniaturization and sub-miniaturization in the design of electronic equipment led to the emergence of a new technique of inter-component wiring and assembly known as the printed circuit board (PCB). This technology has now become the backbone of electronic devices. They provide the required mechanical support structure and electrical connect for the circuit. In addition to providing the connectivity, they also help to reduce the overall size and enhance the efficiency of the device.

  • By 2020, the electronics market in India is expected to increase with a CAGR of 25.1 per cent to USD 400 billion from USD 104 billion in 2015

  • Currently only 35% of this demand is currently being met by local manufacturers. And for the rest 65%, India is still dependent on imports.

  • Hence, PCB- being the backbone of electronics holds a huge demand in India - Current demand of USD 2.01 Billion represents the demand based on the total PCBs (which includes both the bare board PCBs and the populated PCBs)

  • Current market size for bare PCBs is USD 1.2 Billion - Only 30% of this demand for bare PCBs is currently being met by local PCB manufacturers. And for the rest 70%, India.
