Tata’s Semiconductor Plant To Be Set Up At $300 Million Investment

Tata’s semiconductor plant could soon be turned into a reality.  Several news outlets have stated that the Indian multinational business conglomerate Tata Group is in discussions with three states about establishing a semiconductor assembly and testing facility at the cost of $300 million, or about Rs 22,352,118,000.00.

Tata’s semiconductor plant is part of its strategy to strengthen its high-tech semiconductors manufacturing industry, often known as chip manufacturing. India’s current semiconductor demand is estimated to be worth roughly $24 billion, and it is expected to reach a value of $100 billion by 2025.

Semiconductors have become an indispensable component in today’s modern gadgets that provide human beings with comfort, luxury, and security. For example, remote control devices that we use to operate televisions and air conditioners, infotainment systems and vehicle auto-piloting features, and laser treatment machines used in the healthcare industry are just a few examples of the wide range of applications that semiconductors can be used for. Furthermore, advancements in semiconductor technology have resulted in increased system efficiency, miniaturisation, and energy savings, all of which contribute to the preservation of the global environment and the achievement of a safe and comfortable life and the creation of a prosperous future.

Tata’s semiconductor plant is still in the early stages of development. The company is now in discussions with Karnataka, Telangana, and Tamil Nadu about how to continue. When it comes to semiconductor production, Tata Group is looking into the possibility when both global and Indian firms are experiencing a scarcity of semiconductors.

According to CRISIL, a rating agency, a shortage of semiconductors has resulted in a massive reduction in passenger vehicle manufacturing by 11-13 per cent. CRISIL gathered and analysed data from three leading Passenger Vehicle Original Equipment Manufacturers in India. They together have a combined market share of 71 per cent, to arrive at its conclusion.

More Details About Tata’s Semiconductor Plant

According to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want their identities revealed, Tata’s semiconductor operation would be an outsourced semiconductor assembly and test unit. The Tata group is also seeking a suitable location and piece of land for the semiconductor project; the location will be decided by next month, according to further information from insiders. The Tata Group’s semiconductor facility will be involved in packing, assembling, and testing silicon wafers that have been produced by foundries, as well as for converting them into completed semiconductor chips.

Additionally, tata’s semiconductor plant is slated to begin operations late next year. According to the source, it may employ up to 4,000 people, who added that the availability of competent labour at a reasonable price was critical to the project’s long-term survival. Firms such as Intel (INTC.O), Advanced Micro Devices (AMD.O), and STMicroelectronics are potential customers of Tata’s On-Site Automation Technology (OSAT) business.

According to reports, the Tata Group, which already owns a leading software company in India called Tata Consultancy Services, has previously indicated an interest in entering the semiconductor manufacturing market. The rumours from many sources concerning Tata’s semiconductor facility and its size have increased the chance that its new venture would be implemented on a large scale.

In addition to software, the source said that “hardware is something they (Tata) are interested in adding to their portfolio, which is extremely crucial for long-term growth.”

N. Chandrasekaran, the chairman of Tata Consultancy Services, has previously said that the TCS group has interests in everything from automobiles to aircraft and that the company aims to engage in high-end electronics and digital industries.

It is expected that the Tata Group’s entry into semiconductor assembling and testing will strengthen Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Make in India” initiative for electronics manufacturing, which has already assisted the South Asian nation in becoming the world’s second-largest manufacturer of smartphones.

Apart from Tata’s semiconductor plant, the group is also constructing a high-tech electronics manufacturing complex in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, which is separate from the other projects.
