India’s Electrical Equipment Industry

  • Comprises of two segments – generation equipment (boilers, turbines, generators) and transmission & distribution (T&D) and allied equipment like transformers, cables, transmission lines, switchgears, capacitors, energy meters, instrument transformers, surge arrestors, stamping and lamination, insulators, insulating material, industrial electronics, indicating instruments, winding wires, etc. The T&D equipment sector 85% of the industry whereas generation equipment sector is 15%
  • Industry Production (Estimated) for 2016-17: INR 1,52,000crores; Exports: INR 39,280crores (approx. 6USD Billion)
  • Imports: INR 55,290crores (approx. US$ 8.5 Billion)
  • 8% of manufacturing sector is terms of value and 1.3% of India’s GDP
  • Direct employment to 5 lakh persons, indirect to 10 lakhs, and over 50 lakhs across the entire value chain
  • Diversified, matured and strong manufacturing base, with robust supply chain
  • Rugged performance design of equipment to meet tough network demand
  • Presence of major foreign players, either directly or through technical collaborations with Indian manufacturers
  • State-of-art technology in most sub-sectors at par with global standards
  • Major Export Markets: United States of America, United Arab Emirates, Germany, United Kingdom, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France.
  • Major Export Products:, Switchgear and Controlgear, Transformers & Parts, Industrial Electronics, Cables, Transmission Line Towers, Conductors, Rotating Machines (Motors, AC Generators, Generating Sets) & Parts
  • For the rapid development of the domestic electrical equipment industry, encompassing the complete value chain in power generation, transmission and distribution, a holistic Mission Plan launched by the Department of Heavy Industry (DHI), Government of India, with support from IEEMA
  • The Mission Plan lays down a clear roadmap for enhancing the competitiveness of the domestic electrical equipment industry
  • Vision 2022: To make India the country of choice for the production of electrical equipment and reach an output of US$100 billion by balancing exports and imports
