Previously held leadership roles at Western Digital, SanDisk, Freescale Semiconductor (Now NXP) and Motorola. Vivek’s career spans 30 years in the industry and is an engineering graduate with e-MBA from Columbia business school.


Vivek Tyagi, Chairperson, IESA said, “I am honoured to be appointed as IESA Chairman. I am working with the new Executive Council and will strive to make India a preferred destination for Innovative Electronic product designs & Semiconductor Products, with globally competitive manufacturing, industry-friendly and fiscally attractive policies and best in the world talent. Last year was challenging but despite the pandemic the ESDM sector grew in all areas of design, manufacturing and export of ESDM products. India's electronics system design and manufacturing market is about US$ 100 billion in the year 2021, and is expected to grow to US$ 300 billion by the year 2026 as per the MeitY Vision document. Out of this semiconductor, consumption is about US$ 27 billion in 2021 and will rise to US$ 70 billion by the year 2026. IESA will work to catalyse this growth and also work on developing semiconductor manufacturing and supply chain eco systems out of India working alongside GOI and various state governments.”


Sanjay Gupta is the Vice President and India Managing Director at NXP India spearheading four diverse R&D locations across Bangalore, Pune, and Hyderabad comprising more than 3000 Hi-tech semiconductor design engineers. He is also the Chairman of the NXP India Board of Directors for all country decisions. As a seasoned professional with more than 27 years in the semiconductor industry, Sanjay is committed to the development of the sector in India and has been vocal about the importance of the government industry-academia partnership in key industry forums. Sanjay started his professional journey with Motorola in 1996. He holds multiple US patents and numerous technical publications.

IESA is also happy to announce the formation of 6 new Core Initiative groups within to drive focused activities in these domains or verticals which are needed for the next level of growth and innovation in the Electronics and Semiconductor industry as below

1. The IESA HR and Talent CiG for development of next generation skills for the industry headed by Vivek Sharma

2. The IESA Finance CiG for the finance professionals of the members of IESA for the development of policies and inputs to the government headed by Shetul Thakrar.

3. The Semiconductor manufacturing Supply Chain CiG for catalyzing the manufacturing supply chain in India for the Worldwide Semiconductor Manufacturing headed by Jitendra Chaddah

4. The Automotive Electronics CiG for furthering the development and manufacture of chips and systems needed for Automotive electronics including EV headed by Sanjay Gupta

5. The Defense and Aerospace Electronics CiG for furthering the development and manufacture of chips and systems needed for the strategic electronics headed by Anil Kumar Muniswamy.

6. The AI/ML CiG for the further development and manufacture of chips and systems needed for AI/ML solutions coming from India headed by Venkata Simhadri.


Rajeev Khushu said, “Despite the challenges brought on by COVID, IESA did have a productive year, making important strides in strengthening the semiconductor ecosystem and aligning with key stakeholders including the Government to bring greater focus to local semiconductor capability across design and manufacturing. I am happy we were able to conduct our flagship event Vision Summit 2021, the first ever Semicon 2022 and also close an MoU with SIA. In addition, we launched two groundbreaking reports – one, on the semiconductor market potential in India and the Semiconductor supply chain report. The Semiconductor supply chain report was the first of its kind and it clearly sets the stage for India to become a part of the global supply chain ecosystem. Because of the inclusive nature of the SC supply chain many states in India will be able to participate and contribute to the target of 85-100 B USD by 2030. We are on the right path and the road ahead is exciting and full of potential! It gives me great pleasure to welcome our new Chairman Vivek Tyagi, Vice Chairman Sanjay Gupta and our Treasurer Ruchir Dixit – who will continue to build on the vision to establish India’s strategic leadership in semiconductors.”


IESA has been instrumental in working with the central and state government to bring out favorable policies to enable the Indian electronics and semiconductor sector by driving numerous initiatives to bring awareness to the policy makers and working closely with them to help the industry overcome impediments for growth. IESA has also been at the helm towards new government initiatives like ‘Make in India’, ‘Start-up India’ and ‘Digital India’ and has given valuable consultations to international companies who have shown interest to set-up electronics and chip designing facilities in the country. The Executive Council will continue working towards achieving the vision laid down collectively by the association member community.
