Digital India: Can Tech Companies Catch Up On Semiconductor Chip Manufacturing?
Integrated circuit(IC) chips, soldered on semiconductors, are the soul and mind of digital technology manufacturing ecosystem.
The semi-conductor IC chips ecosystem works on super-tech intensive interplay of four sub-systems: semiconductor materials, mostly polysilicon, designing of these chips, fabricating semi-conductor chips on semiconductor material and embedding semiconductor chips in final electronic products.
Semi-conductor chips are driving digitalisation of every process and equipment today in industry, services, farms, governance or regulation. The semiconductor chip industry has already become $500 billion strong and is heading strongly to reach $1 trillion by 2030.
For India to miss out on semi-conductor chip fabrication will be missing out on digital industrialisation, risking future prosperous digital economy and society.
