India Semiconductor Market: The country doesn’t have talent for chip manufacturing

There is no skilled talent available to manage semiconductor manufacturing plants in India, and 10,000-13,000 human resources will be required to meet industry requirements by 2027, according to a Meity official, citing an internal report.

During a panel discussion on the Electronics Sector Skill Council foundation day, Ministry of Electronics and IT Scientist ‘E’ Prashant Kumar stated that India has a large pool of semiconductor design engineers, but that to manage semiconductor plants, talents will initially come from overseas, and resources will be developed in the country gradually.

“For semiconductor manufacturing, other than Strategic Works, SCL etc, we do not have skilled manpower readily available in India. There will be around 10,000-13,000 kinds of requirements for semiconductor manufacturing,” he said.

The manpower for the semiconductor manufacturing plant would initially come from outside, and that the companies would then focus on developing skilled resources locally to meet the estimated requirement of a 10,000-13,000 talent pool by 2027.

Kumar stated that the government’s Chips-to-Startup programme aims to create over 85,000 skilled workers by 2027 and provide expensive state-of-the-art chip designing EDA (Electronics Design Automation) tools to 120 organisations, including colleges, startups, and public institutions, to give students hands-on experience.

The Electronics Sector Skills Council of India (ESSCI) launched the Electronics Olympiad at the event, in collaboration with state-owned CSC E-governance Services, which will engage students in schools, colleges, and higher education institutions in competition in electronics projects.
