MMI is delighted to announce SEMI join forces to host SEMICON India.

• The partnership augments the efforts by the government of India to propel India’s
semiconductor ecosystem.
• SEMICON India will be collocated with electronica India and productronica India.

Messe München India, the Indian subsidiary of Messe München GmbH and a leading
organizer of trade fairs in India, and SEMI, the global industry association advancing growth
for 3,000 member companies and helping the semiconductor industry deploy lifechanging
tech worldwide, have officially inked a monumental agreement. The partnership heralds the
collaboration to host SEMICON India, in colocation with electronica India and productronica
India thereby creating Southeast Asia’s single largest platform for showcasing the latest
advancements in electronics and semiconductor industry.

The collaboration comes in the wake of the earlier announcements by the India
Semiconductor Mission (ISM) at the SemiconIndia 2023 event in Gandhinagar and
subsequently at the curtain raiser of SEMICON India during electronica India and
productronica India 2023 in Bengaluru and signals a significant stride in advancing India’s
domestic semiconductor ecosystem and connecting it to the global industry.

India has emerged as an attractive destination for semiconductor manufacturing and
sourcing due to its rapidly expanding domestic market, demand for new-age electronics
including electric vehicles, and a fast-developing supply chain for machinery, components,
assembly, testing, and many other specialised products and services. Creating a frugal
supply chain for semiconductor manufacturing in India is the need of the hour.

Giving a sense of the opportunities that await participants at SEMICON India, Bhupinder
Singh, CEO, Messe Muenchen India, said, “India’s demand for semiconductors is valued
at $24 billion today, and this is likely to emerge as a $110 billion opportunity by 2030. This
explains the initiatives by global semiconductor companies to enter the Indian market. As the
organisers of South Asia’s largest trade fair for electronics manufacturing – electronica India
and productronica India, we are excited to work with SEMI to host SEMICON India.
It will be a vital event for the semiconductor industry in India, providing a platform for
companies across the semiconductor ecosystem to showcase their latest products and
technologies, and to network with potential customers and partners. We are confident that
SEMICON India will play a key role in advancing the domestic semiconductor ecosystem.”

Regarding SEMICON India, Ajit Manocha, President and CEO, SEMI, said, “Considering
the inherent strengths of the Indian economy, the government’s India Semiconductor
Mission is an open invitation to the world to make and source semiconductors in India. From
policy support to talent availability and attractive demand, India has all the elements for
success in semiconductor design and manufacturing. What the country needs today is a
mature and resilient supply chain that can respond to the exponential demand. SEMICON
India will be a place for all stakeholders to come together and build win-win partnerships to
develop the ecosystem in India. Thus, we are excited to host SEMICON India with our
longstanding partners Messe München.”

SEMICON India will give Indian semiconductor and electronics companies access to global
semiconductor and electronics manufacturing and design supply chain, thereby integrating
the upstream and downstream value chains for semiconductors. Additionally, it will provide a
platform for stakeholder participation in critical initiatives across areas including Workforce
Development, Sustainability and Supply Chain Management to advance industry growth.

About this collaboration with SEMI, Dr Reinhard Pfeiffer, CEO, Messe München, said,
“Today, global manufacturers are looking to diversify their supply chains, and India offers the
world a unique opportunity in this regard. We have had a successful partnership with SEMI
in hosting SEMICON Europa in Munich, and the decision to jointly host SEMICON India is a
natural extension of this partnership. SEMICON India promises to be a high-energy meeting
place of ideas and innovators from the global industry, and I am very excited to see this
platform contributing towards the development of the ecosystem in India.”
