According to a recent report, Apple, the US giant of technology, will bring a part of the production of iPads to our motherland, India. India was aiming towards becoming a hub for manufacturing products, mostly in the field of electronics, and it seems the journey has started in a good way. In the present times, Apple’s iPhones are being manufactured in India. All these things have been made possible by contractual agreements done with Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron.
Currently, a vast number of iPads are being manufactured in China. But as we all know, there is now a rift between the United States and China, which has created a gloomy business atmosphere. There is a report that states that Apple is looking forward to lobbying with the Government of India and striking them a handsome deal. The Government of India has been rolling out many incentive programs to attract foreign companies to start their production here. Now that Apple has decided to manufacture iPads in India, the government can be satisfied with their trials and be motivated to attract even more companies. Apple is planning to come up with a deal of Rs. 200 billion, whereas the government has tabled only 70 billion rupees in the time span of 5 years.
The company has complained about the lack of quality in the Indian supply chains. This will make the company bear some extra money. The Government of India has launched several programs and campaigns like “Vocal for local,” “Aatmanirbhar Bharat,” ” Make in India,” and many others. Apart from Apple, a few other US companies are also planning to shift their manufacturing units from China.
So these companies will have to look for an alternative market now that they have moved away from China. The market should definitely have cheap labor and good technology available. India qualifies in the list of demands, and we might soon see some of the big companies coming over here. iPad production can start during the first part of 2021 in India.
