Mumbai, May 28 -- India is making a concerted effort to ramp up local display manufacturing for digital gadgets such as smartphones, laptops and television sets.

India accounts for 7% of the global display revenue as the third-largest consumer market. The push is being led by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity), which is working with industry stakeholders to urge ramping up of display assembling and full-fledged manufacturing efforts.

Industry veterans state that this could boost domestic value addition in 'made in India' products, including smartphones, both for being sold in the local market as well as in exports-since display accounts for a significant part of a product's 'bill of materials' (BoM) cost.
