The requirement for high technology products, especially electronic products has registered significant growth at around USD 400 billion by 2020. The estimated production will reach USD 104 billion in the same period, creating a gap of USD 296 billion in demand and production. This creates a unique opportunity for companies in the ESDM (Electronic System Design & Manufacturing) sector.
Under the EMC Scheme of Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), Government of India, the primary objective is to upgrade the existing Brownfield Electronics cluster by setting up of a Common Facility Centre (CFC). Seven Electronic Manufacturing Companies have come together along with ELCIA to form a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for promoting the Common Facility Centre in Electronics City, Bangalore.
The CFC will cover a majority of processes that a concept or an idea requires to undergo in order to make it a ready product. The CFC will also support small volume production. For functional testing and other services that cannot be undertaken in the CFC. The SPV will have the necessary collaborations with service providers for functional testing and other services.
