Over the past few decades India has been the epicenter of consumer demand fuelled by technological advances. With regards to the electronics market, India is one of the largest in the world and is anticipated to reach US$ 400 billion in 2022 from US$ 69.6 billion in 2012. The market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.4 % during 2012-2020. The key Growth drivers are increasing incomes, credit availability and government spending. The demand for electronics hardware in India is projected to increase from an estimated US$ 125 billion in 2014 to US$ 400 billion by 2020. Domestic electronic production accounts for around 45 % of the total market demand.

The electronics manufacturing market in India will be growing day by day in India with “DIGITAL INDIA” program. With the launch of Digital India, the government is taking a big step forward to transform the country into a digitally empowered knowledge economy. The programme includes projects that aim to ensure that government services are available to citizens electronically and people get benefit of the latest information and communication technology.

With “Make in India” initiative started by the Indian government, it is expected that many multinational companies shall start their manufacturing set-ups in India. This will increase the requirement of EOT (Electric Overhead Traveling) cranes in India and in turn, the increasing demand for the radio remote system usage. With an expected rise in infrastructure projects in the coming year, there will be a rise in demand from different industry verticals such as power, engineering, steel etc. along with allied industries. The development of new infrastructure for road, railway, and metro lines across the major Indian cities will certainly boost the growth of the sector. The construction crane segment is yet to develop in this respect and will require more time to accept the radio remote controls for their operations.
