July 4, 2023 /SemiMedia/ -- According to industry sources, as India's demand for electronic products continues to rise, Chinese chip companies are seeking to cooperate with Indian partners to gain market opportunities.

Several Chinese electronic component makers are in talks with Indian companies to set up joint ventures, in which the Indian companies will control a majority stake, the source said.

Manufacturing looking beyond China is inevitable amid tensions between China and the United States, and as Foxconn expands its investment in India, other companies are following suit.

India has launched a production-linked incentive (PLI) program since 2020 to encourage local manufacturing of electronic products, textiles, and automobiles. However, due to various factors, few Chinese companies have applied for the program before. The source pointed out that India may adjust its stance on Chinese investment, allowing Chinese companies to form joint ventures with Indian partners.
