Big Leap of India in ‘Chip Design’ Industry

Many American Industries are outsourcing ‘Chip Design’ work to India, due to the lead taken by India in the research of ‘Chip Design’ and also because of the high quality of the research. Many employment opportunities will be available in the near future, in this rapidly expanding field of ‘Chip Design’ .

The ‘Chip Design’ industry has got a good thrust due to the large demand of household appliances from the expanding middle class in the country. The annual turnover of this industry may cross a figure of Rs.45000/- crores, within the next 2 years. The ‘Chip Design’ industry is growing with fastest speed during the last 2years.
