Semicon India 2024: Shaping India’s Semiconductor Future
A Preview Event Illuminates India's Rise in Global Electronics and Semiconductors
A preview event for Semicon India 2024 took place at the Bengaluru International Exhibition Center last week.
Following the resounding success of Semicon India 2023, which occurred earlier in the year in Gujarat, the global summit is scheduled to return in September next year. The curtain raiser event for Semicon India 2024 took place on September 13–14, 2023, at the Bengaluru International Exhibition Center. The event was inaugurated by Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Union Minister of State for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship and Electronics & IT, and was organized by SEMI in partnership with electronica and productronica.
Under the theme “India — A Reliable Partner and a Growing Force in the Global Electronics Industry,” the event brought together industry leaders, researchers, and government officials in support of India’s growth as a significant player in the semiconductor sector. SemiconIndia has evolved into a pivotal event in the country, uniting both domestic and international organizations to bolster India’s electronics manufacturing industry.
During the event, Chandrasekhar underscored India’s advancements in establishing a global electronics and semiconductor ecosystem. He emphasized the growing momentum in India, particularly following the historic New Delhi declaration during India’s G20 Presidency.
Chandrasekhar had earlier highlighted India’s emergence as a trusted global partner. Leading companies such as Micron, AMD, Lam Research, and Applied Materials have already made investments in India, contributing to the expansion of the manufacturing ecosystem, generating employment opportunities, and aligning with India’s aspiration to achieve a $5-trillion economy.
SemiconIndia 2023 was organized by the India Semiconductor Mission in collaboration with industry partners and associations, all under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The primary objective is to position India as a worldwide hub for semiconductor design, manufacturing, and technology development, aligning with the vision of India Semiconductor Mission. The event garnered substantial participation from startups, entrepreneurs, innovators, academics, researchers, and government officials, all dedicated to advancing India’s vision in this sector.
