Your analysis is spot on. This may be the reason why India has not so far attracted the kind of interest it is hoping for from chipmakers and investors. The companies still have to be certain of the viability of the project no matter how much incentive the government offers.

Not a good idea

It would be a waste of time and money to put up a fab in India. It is not a particularly labor intensive industry and the industrial infrastructure is still very poor. The capital, power and water resources are no where comparable to China and many other countries.

This proves that India is getting more and more serious into Fab industry. With the right policy and infrastructure in place, it will come soon. India has been the design centers for lots of MNC to date.

There are so many big private industrial houses in India with huge cash reserves. Instead of looking outwards if Indian govt is successful in tapping these internal resources and promises them with good tax incentives and right infrastructure they will definitely come forward. These industrial house have enough entrepreneurial acumen and international contacts to bring in the reputed foundries to set up shop in India with their partnership.


IC Fab is a kind of business best left to the private parties.

India should become more aggressive and invite the fabrication houses to set up the industry. This could spur in a huge electronics manufacturing industry towards India and the cost of the end product can be reduced.
