Xiaomi in talks with two more partners to set up plants in India 

 

Chinese handset maker Xiaomi is in active discussions with two more component partners to set up factories to support its growing operations in the country, especially its smartphones business where it has emerged the market leader.  “We have two other partners who are in active discussions with us for multiple components nothing is finalised yet,”   Manu Kumar Jain, managing director at Xiaomi India, told ET. Local sourcing of components will help the handset maker reduce prices of its products in India, besides reducing the go-to-market time.  Xiaomi has been taking steps to bring its entire component ecosystem partners to India.

Prices of TV, home appliances may go up 7-8 per cent from next month 

 

Prices of TV and home appliance are set to increase as the consumer durable makers are reviewing their selling price post festive season sales amid tight margins. In order to ensure smooth festive season sale, consumer durable manufacturers had temporarily absorbed impacts on their input costs, following the depreciation of the Indian rupee against US dollar and increase in custom duty. Panasonic IndiaNSE 6.63 % is set to increase the prices of its products by up to 7 per cent, while some others players have already increased it.  "Over the last few months, the rupee has continually risen which in turn is impacting our inputs costs. While we try to absorb maximum costs for our consumers, but given the market situation, we will be forced to hike the prices by 5-7 per cent from next month," Panasonic India President and CEO Manish Sharma told. Expressing similar sentiments, Haier India President Eric Braganza said: "We have ensured that the price rise comes into effect post the festive season since India tends to purchase consumer durables extensively during this time.

India To Have EV Charging Infra Policy Soon: Power Minister

 

The policy on electric vehicles (EVs) charging infrastructure will also allow individuals to establish charging stations for commercial use India would soon have a policy on electric vehicles (EVs) charging infrastructure that will allow individuals to establish charging stations for commercial purposes in order to push e-mobility in the country, said R K Singh, Minister of Power and New & Renewable Energy.

 

Power Ministry has circulated the policy on EV charging among other concerned department and ministries for their comments and feedback. The policy also mentions that every individual is free to establish EV charging station,” Singh said while speaking at the International Symposium to Promote Innovation & Research in Energy Efficiency (Inspire), jointly organised by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) and World Bank. Replying to reporters’ question on the use of charging facility by individuals for commercial basis, he said, “Everybody is free to set up charging station. There is no need to get a licence.” India need infrastructure for EV charging to boost electronic vehicles. The country aims to have considerable share of EVs on road by 2030, which is also in sync with the Government’s commitment to cut emissions by a third from 2005 level. Singh also informed about the postponement of 1,200 megawatt (MW) hybrid auction (solar and wind) and said that the tariff ceiling has been raised to Rs 2.70/unit. The ministry is extending the auction because the ceiling price has been increased, he added.

 

The auction is postponed till November 14, which was earlier scheduled for October 26. According to the tender, the successful bidder will establish combined hybrid wind and solar capacities of 1,200 MW. In the meantime, the deadline for submitting the bid for 10 GW solar energy auction has also get an extension till November 19.

Trump to press on with more tariffs if talks with Xi fail

 

President Donald Trump has said he will likely push forward with plans to increase tariffs on US$200 billion (S$275 billion) worth of Chinese goods, and indicated that he would also impose duties on all remaining imports from the Asian giant if negotiations with Chinese President Xi Jinping fail to produce a trade deal. Mr Trump said Apple's iPhones and laptops imported from China could be hit by new tariffs. Americans could "very easily" handle a 10 per cent duty, he said.  Mobile phones and computers, among China's biggest exports to the US, have been spared as the administration has sought to minimize the impact on US consumers. WSJ said the administration has been worried about a consumer reaction to such levies.

Mirc Electronics to make TVs for Mukesh’s Reliance Retail

 

Mirc Electronics, which manufactures white goods under the Onida brand, has bagged a major order to make television sets for the Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Retail. As part of its effort to step up non-captive manufacturing, the company is also in talks with three Chinese companies to manufacture television sets for their clients in India.  The demand for third-party TV manufacturing is driven by the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, as part of which the duty on TV imports was doubled to 20 per cent and the duty on panels was hiked to 15 per cent from 5 per cent. Mirc Electronics has manufacturing facilities at Wada (Maharashtra) and Roorkee (Uttrakhand) with a capacity to make over 3.4 million televisions and 2.4 lakh washing machines.  Vijay Mansukhani, Managing Director, Mirc Electronics, told BusinessLine that the company is currently manufacturing 80 per cent of television LED panels required for captive purpose to reduce cost and have an edge over other brands. Once the LED panel manufacturing stabilises, he said the company will start producing for non-captive purpose as there is a big demand for it after the hike in import duty.

Smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has announced its plan to open 5,000 new Mi Store in rural India by the end of 2019, which potentially can create 15,000 new jobs. Xiaomi changed its initial strategy of the online-only model to venture into offline stores in 2017 amid bottleneck in online retail, as reported by Financial Express. Managing Director of Xiaomi India was quoted as saying that these stores would be set up in one of the most remote corners of India. He claimed that they would generate over 15,000 jobs.  Xiaomi also operates through its own set of Mi Homes chain where it showcases the entire range of Xiaomi products, which includes smartphones, televisions, and other products. Moreover, he said that rural regions share 40 per cent of the offline retail. Through the offline stores, xiaomi is expecting half of its smartphone sales next year. They plan to increase the number of Mi Homes from the current 50 to 100 and take its Mi preferred partners program to 100 cities from the current 50.

Manufacturing jobs

 

Over the past decade or so, information technology has been the prima donna of the jobs market attracting the brightest and largest talent in the country. But no longer, as the manufacturing sector, part of the goods-producing industries group, is slowly catching up. The manufacturing sector comprises establishments engaged in the mechanical, physical, or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products. Some of the industries that feature in this category include - the construction industry, automobile industry, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, Textiles and Apparel, Computers and Electronics, petroleum, plastics and chemicals and several others. Although India's manufacturing sector has  long performed below potential, the country's rapidly expanding economy, growing by 7 percent a year over the past decade, has given a huge impetus to the manufacturing sector. Moreover, a massive workforce, an emerging supply base, access to natural resources - iron ore and aluminum for engineered goods, cotton for textiles, and coal for power generation- and the 'Make in India' initiative is looking to boost the contribution made by the manufacturing sector from the current 17 per cent to 25 per cent of GDP by the end of year 2020, so as to become a viable manufacturing alternative to China. An important factor of this growth is that while manufacturing gives employment to around 12 per cent of the country's workforce, it has a multiplier effect, as every job created in manufacturing is also creating 2-3 jobs in the services sector.

IN-CAR INFOTAINMENT IS SET TO EXPLODE WITH PROLIFERATION OF IOT AND AI IN CARS:

 

According to an article in Forbes, the average American in Los Angeles spends 102 hours in traffic congestion every year, while an average New Yorker spends 91 hrs. The condition back home is no better. The average speed in Bengaluru has fallen from 20.4 Km/h to 17.2 km/h which means more time lost in traffic congestions. In Hyderabad, the number has fallen from 27.1 km/h in 2016 to 18.5km/h in 2017 and this trend is expected to continue as more and more vehicles are added to the roads. On the other hand, notwithstanding the traffic conditions, almost all the auto manufacturers have reported robust sales in India for 2018. A recent article in Livemint notes that India’s top five car manufacturers (Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Mahindra, Tata Motors and Honda) together sold 230,870 vehicles in Oct 2018 — a 2.06 percent rise from a year earlier.

Data Protection Bill: EU cautions India against stressing on mandatory local storage

 

The European Union has suggested that the Indian government, which is in the process of making a data protection law, should not stress on data localisation as apart from being unnecessary and potentially harmful to the cause of data protection, any such measure would create unnecessary costs, difficulties and uncertainties that could hamper business and investments.  The European Union has suggested that the Indian government, which is in the process of making a data protection law, should not stress on data localisation as apart from being unnecessary and potentially harmful to the cause of data protection, any such measure would create unnecessary costs, difficulties and uncertainties that could hamper business and investments. The caution with regard to data localisation being part of a proposed data protection law is part of EU’s responses to the draft Data Protection Bill drafted by Justice Srikrishna committee which is being processed by the ministry of electronics and information technology. As is known, most global companies present in India who deal with data have been opposing data localisation, which basically means that whatever data is generated in the country should either be stored within the country or at least a mirror copy of it should be stored in the country.

Solar & Defence

 

Solar and its shadow

 

One of the few encouraging trends in the global efforts on climate change mitigation is the rapid adoption of solar energy across the world. This change is driven by a combination of government policies and declining costs. The International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that the global solar photovoltaic (PV) installed capacity is expected to increase beyond 1,600 Gigawatts (GW) by 2030. India has set an ambitious target of 100 GW of solar capacity by 2022, with one-fifth of that already installed. H owever, it is important to be aware of the potential future problems. PV panels will inevitably pile up as waste at the end of their useful lives and create challenges in the absence of an effective plan to deal with them. Consider the case of electronic waste (e-waste). With the explosive growth in the adoption of computers and consumer electronics over the last two decades, India is one of the countries worst affected by e-waste, according to the United Nations Environment (UNEP).

“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.
