Union Budget 2020-21

 

FM demonstrates appetite for imposing higher import duties on Electronics and several Manufactured Products

 

ELCINA welcomes special mention of Electronics Sector in the Budget with assurance of support to develop the value chain of this industry, including Mobiles, Electronic Equipment and Semiconductor Packaging. This is very encouraging because ELCINA has been urging the government to focus on supporting growth and investments in electronic component manufacturing which is the building block to establish a competitive and sustainable Electronic System Design & Manufacturing Sector in India.

 

Semiconductor Packaging, popularly known as Assembly Test Mark & Packaging (ATMP) of Semiconductors is the route India must take to leverage its design capability and develop IC Packages to cater to our unique needs. The aspiration to establish a semiconductor fab as the first step has been a miscalculation with little chance of success. With focus on ATMP we are now moving in the right direction to meet domestic demand for low cost technology for our masses and ensure security of our critical infrastructure and defence.

 

Enhanced duties on mobile inputs should take the manufacturing value chain of this critical product forward as per its PMP, which has a key role to play in Electronics manufacturing. At present it suffers from low value addition and these needs to change. Import duty has also been increased on PCBA’s of several products telecom products, Set Top Boxes, Reception apparatus for TV’s, Solar Cells and some Consumer Electronic products. These steps will surely encourage domestic manufacturing and make investments attractive.

 

Imposing high Customs Duty on inputs for EV’s may become a road block to rapid growth of EV demand. A more calibrated approach may have been a better route to take.

 

Several macro steps have been taken in the Budget such as a huge allocation for Bharat Net project which is an excellent step to connect the remotest parts of India and also boost demand for Telecom products and equipment.

 

It is encouraging to see focus of the Government on giving a boost to farm, infrastructure and healthcare which should revive growth of our economy. Emphasis is seen on capacity building and empowerment of marginalised sections of the society while some steps have also been taken to assuage the business community and investors who have borne the brunt of harsh structural reforms.

 

Proposals for Start Ups are very encouraging and enhanced Turnover limit and Tax break is a welcome step. With respect to MSME’s  the proposal of Working Capital Credit through subordinate debt, equated to quasi equity and increase in the limit for Statutory Audits are welcome steps they provide some procedural relief and addresses their credit requirements. However the issue of definition of MSME limited to Rs 10 Cr Investment remains and has not been addressed in the Budget. This is a major hindrance and anomaly.

 

The announcements with respect to Personal Income Tax appear positive but we need to work on the fine print. A clear tax benefit could have been provided without the option of both old and new Tax Schemes which has taken away a lot from this positive step.

 

Overall the scenario appears positive though speedy implementation, protecting the wealth creators and real ease of doing business would decide the impact of this Budget. ELCINA is hopeful that new Schemes under the National Policy for Electronics will be announced soon to meet the aspirations of the sector and adequate budgetary allocations to effectively implement these Schemes.

Coronavirus outbreak: China shutdowns hit Indian electronics companies

 

Smartphone and consumer electronics companies in India said they were staring at production cuts and possible delays in launch of new products due to the coronavirus outbreak in China that has disrupted component supplies. The scale of the impact would depend on how long the disruption continues. China accounts for 75% of total value of components used in TVs and almost 85% in case of smartphones. All critical components like mobile displays, open cell TV panels, printed circuit boards, capacitors, memory and LED chips are imported from China. Air conditioner compressors and washing machine motors are also among sourced from that country.  Chinese vendors have hiked component prices by 2-3% due to supply shortages triggered by factory shutdowns, and this could rise further unless the situation improves in the next few days.

Apple Partner Wistron Opens Third iPhone Manufacturing Facility in India

 

Wistron won approval to build the new smartphone factory in March 2019 and has already completed trial production at the plant, thanks to collaborative efforts by the Taiwanese firm’s local team. According to Wistron company chairman Simon Lin, local talent will fill the top- to mid-tier management roles at the plant, which will undertake production of lower-priced iPhones initially, possibly starting with the iPhone 8. Wistron has two other plants in India, both in Bengaluru, that have been producing ‌iPhone‌ SE and ‌iPhone‌ 6s devices for sale in the local market. Meanwhile, DigiTimes reports that Apple has continued expanding its mid-tier ‌iPhone‌ production in India, with partner Foxconn already manufacturing iPhone XR devices there. Apple has been setting up ‌‌iPhone‌‌ manufacturing hubs in India ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi began promoting his “Made in India” initiative, which requires that 30 percent of products sold by foreign companies be manufactured or produced within the country. India is the world’s second largest smartphone market, but just one in four Indians are said to own a smartphone, providing Apple with an opportunity to sell iPhones to millions of new customers in the country.

Samsung invests $500 million for new smartphone display manufacturing plant in India

 

Samsung is investing $500 million to set up a new plant in Delhi for manufacturing smartphone displays, technology news website Tech Crunch reported on Monday. The South Korean smartphone-maker disclosed its investment and the plans for the plant to a local regulator earlier this month, the report said. Samsung had previously invested $700 million to build its existing manufacturing plant at Noida in 2018. It was then claimed to be the largest mobile phone manufacturing plant in the country. The upcoming plant will also utilise a few acres of land from this existing plant. Samsung plans to produce smartphone displays alongside other devices at the plant. In-house production can lead to the possibility of future Samsung devices to be sold at relatively cheaper prices in the country, reports say. amsung setting up a new manufacturing plant is in line with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s strategy to increase in-house production of smartphones. According to a Bloomberg report, the Ministry had proposed to offer subsidised loans to mobile handset manufacturers in order to attract tech giants such as Apple Inc and Samsung Electronics Co’s suppliers to open more factories in the country.

‘Make in India calls for manufacturing policy’

 

Despite the fact that factory-based industrialisation in India was started in 1854 with the establishment of first factory-based textile unit, the country hardly saw any significant industrialisation, said retired professor of Economics at Jawaharlal Nehru Univeristy, CP Chandrashekar. Chandrashekar, who recently quit the Standing Committee on Economic Statistics setup by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MOSPI), after the attack on students at JNU, was addressing at a session on Perspectives on Make in India as part of a seminar organised by Xavier Institute of Management & Entrepreneurship, Bengaluru, on Saturday. “Despite the country giving rise to industries like cement, paper, steel, it did not possess enough manufacturing capacity which was reflected in the extremely low share of manufacturing in GDP,” said Chandrashekar.  He said there is a need to look at re-engineering the domestic industry to make it internationally competitive and attract foreign investment to use india as a base for the world market and it can be done by removing the several restrictions. Rajeev Gowda, MP, Rajya Sabha said Make in India, that aimed at creating 100 million jobs, has failed to do so. Instead, the textile industry lost 30 million jobs.

Making cash out of trash, these entrepreneurs earn cores by recycling waste

 

Over the past few years, India’s air pollution problem has been making headlines. At the same time, the country is also dealing with other kinds of pollution, such as plastic and electronic waste (e-waste). An Un-Plastic Collective (UPC) study revealed India generates 9.46 million tonnes of plastic waste annually, of which 40 percent remains uncollected. Further, India generates about two million tonnes (MT) of e-waste annually, according to the Global E-Waste Monitor 2017.The plastic and electronic waste has been proving difficult to handle. But in every adversity, there lies opportunity, and some entrepreneurs have been quick to capitalise on the need

How e-tailors are leveraging the second-hand goods market

 

E-commerce giants Flipkart and Amazon are bullish on the nascent refurbished goods market in the country, with a special focus on smartphones and gadgets. Amazon is offering such products under its Amazon Renewed program, while Flipkart has a separate platform, 2GUD, for the same. The refurbished market in India is mostly unorganised, but is witnessing rapid growth. Consider this: 14 lakh second-hand smartphones were sold in India in 2019 — a growth of 14% — according to Counterpoint Research. Industry watchers say that this trend is being fuelled by the diminishing product life cycles of smartphones — from three or four years to a year or two now — and more phones entering the refurbishment cycle as a result. It is estimated that automobiles, due to their high prices, command a 60% share in the organised part of this market currently, while electronics, including smartphones, have 25%, and other products such as home/kitchen products and apparels claim 15%.  Globally, the online second-hand goods market is flourishing. China’s second-hand market, according to NetEconomy, was valued at $100 billion in 2018. Alibaba, a formidable player in the market, has two refurbished goods marketplaces under its umbrella: Idle Fish and Xianyu. Idle Fish, reports suggest, has 200 million users and is valued at $3 billion.

India’s growth impulses since independence

 

Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC), is India's apex trade promotion organization mandated to promote India's electronics, telecom and IT exports to global markets. The development India achieved since independence is multifarious. Some of them are tangible and others intangible. Spread of literacy, bringing more and more people in the mainstream, building strong democratic institutions etc are some of the factors which cannot be measured in quantitative terms; but the impact of these inclusive measures are felt widely. Besides, they are the great pillars, which will unleash a sustainable growth path to India's future development. When it becomes economic growth, which can be measured in quantitative terms, India's growth triggers are services sector, infrastructure, manufacturing and advancement in technology. If one takes the GDP growth for the last 10 years, India ranks second after China in the world pecking order of growth. ESC has its representative office in Dubai to service the Middle East Region represented by Shri Kamal Vachani. With the help of Shri Kamal Vachani, Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC) has been organising India's participation in major events like Gitex in Dubai and Comex in Oman. ESC members use the services of ESC's regional office in Dubai to enhance their exports to the Middle East Region. Shri Kamal Vachani represents Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC) as a Hon. Regional Director in the Middle East.

The Role of Silicon Carbide in Power Electronics

 

The adoption of energy solutions with SiC materials is accelerating in both the automotive and industrial markets. Making silicon carbide (SiC) wafers is a far more involved process than making silicon wafers, and with demand for SiC devices rising, companies that make them have to nail down sources of SiC wafers.For example, Rohm and STMicroelectronics recently signed a multi-year agreement under which SiCrystal (part of Rohm Group) will provide over $120 million of 150mm SiC wafers to STMicroelectronics. SiCrystal will supply ST with monocrystalline silicon carbide wafer substrates (figure 1). Why is this so important? Because the properties of SiC are particularly well-suited for a variety of power components and devices used in electric vehicles, fast charging stations, renewable energy, and various industrial applications.  SiC offers a number of advantages in terms of energy, which is why it has been and will be the focus of attention in the development of the new power electronics, together with its cousin GaN.  They are the main wide band gap (WBD) semiconductor materials. SiC is able to withstand substantially higher voltages, up to ten times higher than typical silicon. This means fewer series components to be used in high-voltage electronics applications, reducing complexity and system costs.

Mobile handsets & components under Make in India to get special push in Budget

 

In late December, at one of the extensive closed door meetings that the PM has had with various industry vertical heads, a high-profile team representing India's digital economy outlined with way forward. At the meeting where the PM was most candid asking for real time suggestions to boost growth, he was informed that electronics manufacturing, especially handsets and components, had a good chance of becoming India's largest exports within the next five years. Industry asked him to follow a path of least resistance.  Sources close to developments revealed to IANS that a special incentive scheme for the manufacture of mobile handsets and components will be unveiled in the Budget to give an additional push to the burgeoning sector.


A Modified Special Incentive Package Scheme (MSIPS) to promote aggressively a 20-odd component manufacturing ecosystem in the country that will go beyond making mobile phones is on the anvil. This will be an overarching policy which goes beyond interest subvention and credit default guarantee and it will be outside the scope of MeitY (Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology) and by an outside department/arm since ministry's role is that of a policy maker only. M-SIPS was floated to encourage electronics manufacturing and it ran from 2012 to 2018. It promised multiple incentives for 10 years, including a capital subsidy of 20% in special economic zones (SEZs) and 25% in non-SEZs, and reimbursements of countervailing duty or excise on capital equipment for non-SEZ units.

Samsung to set up India’s 1st mobile display plant

 

Samsung is setting up India's first smartphone display manufacturing unit on the outskirts of Delhi. The South Korean company is investing more than ₹3,500 crore in this facility in Noida, as per a regulatory filing with the Registrar of Companies (RoC). It could later be expanded to manufacture displays of other devices as well. The chaebol’s flagship India entity, Samsung India Electronics, has transferred a plot to a group company, Samsung Display, in its existing manufacturing plant area and has given a loan of Rs.3,500 crore to meet the investment and working capital requirement for establishing the production unit. As per the regulatory disclosures, sourced from business intelligence platform Veratech Intelligence, Samsung India said it had incorporated a group entity, Samsung Display Noida, “with the principal business of manufacturing, assembling, processing and sales of displays (including their parts, components and accessories) for all types and sizes of electronic devices.”  Samsung said the plant would produce displays of mobile phones and IT display. However, an industry executive aware of the plans said the plant would initially produce displays for mobile phones, but could later extend it to laptops and televisions. The current investment will be enhanced as the capacities increase and Samsung Display sells the component to other brands like it does globally, he said. The first phase will become operational this year itself. An email sent to Samsung India seeking comment remained unanswered till Friday press time.

Govt considers offering subsidized loans to attract Apple, Samsung suppliers to India: Report

 

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) is considering offering subsidized loans to mobile manufacturers to attract suppliers to Apple and Samsung to start operations in India, reported Bloomberg. The report also quoted an official saying that giving interest subsidies on local borrowing by such handset manufacturers is likely to be a part of the upcoming Budget, set to be tabled on February 1. Industrial zones with tax and customs clearance, along with infrastructural facilities like roads, railways and water supply, could also be a part of the larger plan. Currently, Apple's iPhone XR is being assembled by its supplier Foxconn in Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu. Even the South Korean tech giant Samsung has set up its largest manufacturing facility in Noida, thus setting up shop in India. Experts say that phone shipment is expected to see high single-digit to double-digit growth in India as smartphones aiding everything from shopping to banking to social media. Counterpoint Research Associate Director Tarun Pathak expects India's smartphone market to grow by 9 percent this year and in double digits (by 12-14 percent) in 2020. The Bloomberg report quoted figures that showed that the Indian electronics manufacturing export segment achieved record numbers year after year since 2014.

The long read: All about albedo

 

Bifacial technology offers project owners the chance for a significant boost in energy yield. But unlike some other innovations in module technology, this boost is entirely dependent on how the modules are installed and maintained within the PV system. A clear understanding of how a bifacial module behaves in the field is needed to ensure its performance. And though this could be said for any PV system, with bifacial the factors affecting performance multiply considerably compared to a single-sided installation, so gaining this understanding is no small feat. “You have to consider the complicated shading of the ground and the even more complicated way different points are irradiated by diffuse light,” explains Bas Van Aken, a scientist in PV module technology at Netherlands-based research organization TNO Energy Transition. “Each point on the ground has different angles and distances to the PV panels, and mounting structures which are obstructing the view of the sky and the horizon.” TNO is one of several players working on accurately simulating the behavior of bifacial modules in the field, and its ‘Bigeye’ model takes into account various types of rear side shading, as well as temperature, row length, and edge effects, angle-dependent reflection and more, in both fixed-tilt and single-axis tracker systems. The influence of these and other factors can inform various aspects of system design, including ground coverage ratio, total DC system size, DC/AC ratio, module height, and more. And the optimal setting will vary depending on climate, business model, and other site and project-specific factors.

Perovskites meet the stability standard

 

Perovskite PV technology has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years, with cell and module efficiencies quickly growing from just a few percent to figures that match and even surpass the performance of commercial silicon and thin-film products.  Though stability has improved at a similar pace – the first perovskite PV cells, fabricated a decade ago lasted only minutes – the issue remains a key concern and one which has prompted caution among manufacturers taking an interest in the technology. The latest announcement from European solar research organization Solliance, however, could ease stability concerns. Solliance, which incorporates Dutch research organization TNO and Belgian counterpart imec, claims it has put perovskite modules made on its pilot production line through rigorous stability tests and achieved impressive results that would meet industry standards. “By passing three tortuous aging tests, Solliance and its industrial partners take a major step towards commercialization of this novel solar technology,” read an announcement from the research body. “This will have a major impact on how solar energy can be applied.” The glass-glass encapsulated modules, measuring 6in by 6in with an aperture area of 100cm², were fabricated using sputter and slot die coating, atomic layer deposition and laser interconnection.

“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.
