IESA is the premier trade body representing the Indian Electronic System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) industry and has been represented it since 2005.

Late 1990s, India emerged as the back-office to many multinationals. And this gave momentum to the technology sector in India. Riding on its engineering management and software coding skills, India developed the art of product designing. Thus, the era of start-ups started in India.

However, silently the technology hardware sector was gearing up to create an ecosystem to drive the product designing and manufacturing in India. Today, both the industries are at an inflection point and need to create an ecosystem to front-lead India's manufacturing agenda.

The ecosystem, as desired, will not be possible without promoting existing and new start-ups. India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA) has been leading the agenda through industry partnerships, driving industry-academia relationships, and partnering government bodies to set up incubation centre for the start-ups.
