South Korean giant, Samsung, the biggest Smart device manufacturer in the world, has ended its phone production center in China. The business will now expand its production base in India to make up for the Chinese production system. This is huge blow to Chinese production, which is currently struggling with flight of worldwide companies.
“The production equipment will be re-allocated to other global production websites, depending on our worldwide production technique based on market requirements,” said journalism release by South Korean innovation significant.
The Huizhou plant, based in Guangdong Province, constructed in 1992, utilized more than 6,000 employees. In its 2 and a half years’ long journey, the factory played an essential role in Samsung’s operations in China. In 2017, 6.3 crore smartphones were produced in the factory.
In the last few years, the Smart device manufacturers are moving the production from China to South and Southeast Asia. The rise in land and labor expense and saturation in domestic Chinese market are reasons behind China losing on the Smartphone manufacturing front. “In China, individuals purchase low-cost mobile phones from domestic brands and high-end phones from Apple or Huawei. Samsung has little hope there to revive its share,” said Park Sung-soon, an analyst at Cape Investment & & Securities.
The Smart device manufacturing giants, consisting of the Chinese majors like Vivo, Oppo have actually broadened their manufacturing facilities in India in last couple of years. India has overtaken the United States of America to end up being the second largest manufacturer of Smart device worldwide in 2017.

Foxconn, the Taiwanese manufacturing giant has actually also signed a contract with the state government of Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, and Haryana to invest five billion dollars. Acer’s spin-off manufacturing arm Wistron revealed contracts with Indian government officials to rent land for local production purposes.
The Electronic maker, Samsung, Toshiba, Panasonic, and Sony are considering cuts in their investment in China and established factories in India. So the troubles of Chinese manufacturing is not restricted to Smartphone companies, it is prevalent across all the sectors. As Trump’s ‘Made in America’ rhetoric translates into action, more problems to manufacturing in China is expected. But one thing Indian federal government must bear in mind that it needs to focus more on land and labor reforms if it wishes to benefit from the big manufacturing move over from China.
India has very strong community for software application front however hardware industry is still in nascent stage. As per National Policy on Electronics-2018, electronic devices making clusters will be promoted by the government and will assist the nation to grow on the hardware front. When the existence in hardware front like semiconductors and mobile phones ends up being strong, the software presence and hardware existence could be integrated to develop a whole brand-new variety of products for the nation and for exports.
