How Semiconductors and AI Will Drive India’s Innovation Future

Semiconductors are the building blocks of modern electronics, powering everything from smartphones to supercomputers. They are also essential for the development and deployment of artificial intelligence (AI), which relies on massive amounts of data processing and computation. AI has the potential to transform various sectors and domains, such as healthcare, education, agriculture, manufacturing, and entertainment, by enhancing productivity, efficiency, quality, and innovation.

India, as one of the fastest-growing economies and the second-most populous country in the world, has a huge opportunity and a challenge to leverage semiconductors and AI for its development and growth. India has a strong talent pool of engineers, scientists, and entrepreneurs, as well as a large market and consumer base. However, India also faces some constraints and gaps in its semiconductor and AI ecosystem, such as the lack of domestic fabrication facilities, the dependence on imports, the low level of R&D investment, the regulatory and policy barriers, and the ethical and social implications of AI.

To overcome these challenges and realize the full potential of semiconductors and AI, India needs to adopt a holistic and strategic approach that involves multiple stakeholders and dimensions. Some of the key steps that India can take are:

Developing a national semiconductor and AI policy that outlines the vision, goals, priorities, and roadmap for the sector, as well as the roles and responsibilities of different actors, such as the government, the industry, the academia, and the civil society.

Investing in the infrastructure and capabilities for semiconductor and AI research, design, development, and manufacturing, such as setting up fabrication plants, design centers, innovation hubs, and testing labs, as well as supporting the human capital development, the intellectual property protection, and the quality standards.

Fostering a vibrant and competitive semiconductor and AI industry that can cater to the domestic and global demand, as well as drive innovation and entrepreneurship, by creating a conducive business environment, providing incentives and subsidies, facilitating access to capital and markets, and promoting collaboration and partnerships.

Applying semiconductor and AI solutions to address the societal and developmental challenges and opportunities, such as improving healthcare delivery, enhancing education outcomes, increasing agricultural productivity, boosting manufacturing efficiency, and creating digital entertainment, by identifying the use cases, the user needs, the value propositions, and the impact assessment.

Ensuring the ethical and responsible use of semiconductor and AI technologies, by establishing the legal and regulatory frameworks, the governance and oversight mechanisms, the accountability and transparency measures, and the public awareness and engagement initiatives, as well as addressing the issues of data privacy, security, quality, bias, and inclusion.

India is one of the emerging markets for semiconductors and AI, with a projected growth rate of 25-35% between 2024 and 2027. India has a strong talent pool, a large consumer base, and a supportive government policy for the sector. However, India also faces some challenges, such as the lack of domestic fabrication facilities, the dependence on imports, the low level of R&D investment, and the ethical and social implications of AI.

According to the latest rankings, India is the 9th largest semiconductor market in the world, with a share of 3.2% of the global revenue in 2021. India is also the 5th largest AI market in the world, with a revenue of $3.2 billion in 2021. India’s main competitors in the region are China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan, which have more advanced and established semiconductor and AI industries. India needs to catch up with these countries by investing more in infrastructure, innovation, and applications of semiconductors and AI.
