Appliances and Consumer Electronics (ACE) Industry Urges Government to Propel Growth in Domestic Manufacturing

Additionally, in association with PwC, CEAMA unveiled a detailed report on ‘Championing Change in the Indian Appliance & Consumer Electronics (ACE) Industry’. With an anticipated CAGR of only 9%, PwC findings state that manufacturing disabilities and a limited component ecosystem are root causes of low cumulative value addition. The large population and steep GDP growth over next 5 years will be the key driver for Indian economic pyramid shift towards the top. The report also goes on to illustrate government of India’s push to promote electronics manufacturing in order to achieve net zero imports, and placing the ACE industry at the forefront of digital India program.  This push has resulted in an increase in domestic manufacturing from INR 55,765 crore during 2015 – 16 to INR 64,752 crore during 2016 – 17.

Sharing his views, Mr Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog said “The appliance and consumer electronics (ACE) sector offers immense growth opportunities, not only in terms of consumption but also manufacturing and job creation. They have been one of the forthcoming industries who has successfully aligned their business strategies to various government-led initiatives such as ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’. The policy led initiatives proposed by the government have been specifically designed to aid the small and medium enterprises. CEAMA has given these SME’s a platform to voice their opinion and become more included in the government-led policy and growth discussions”. 


Sharing his views on this occasion Mr. Manish Sharma – President of CEAMA, said “CEAMA was established with the sole objective to address the emerging issues of the Appliances and Consumer Electronics industry (ACE), and evaluate and advocate alignment with government policies. The aim behind releasing this report was to bring to the fore challenges faced by the industry in the current environment, and the policy framework needed to support the continuously evolving business ecosystem especially local manufacturing. The consumer durable industry creates 3 indirect jobs for every direct job, thus it needs to work closely with the government on further improving the local manufacturing framework to generate more employable labor”.
