Currently serving as the Co-founder, Managing Director and CEO of KPIT, Kishor Patil's vision in maintaining KPIT's leadership in its key focus verticals made the company one of the world's largest and most recognized technology, services, and business solutions globally. Co-founded KPIT in 1990, he led the company to grow over 50 times in revenues in the last 12+ years to reach around $500 million. Kishor is passionate about applying technology to solve business challenges and address larger problems of the society. He has received CA Business Leader Award - Corporate Award, by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) in 2014. Also, he has presented several forums at World Economic Forum on subjects such as Entrepreneurships, Innovation, building high performance organizations, and business transformation.

In spite of the current tough times, there are abundant opportunities for innovation, co-development and globalization in the semiconductor design industry, especially with the opportunities offered by the Automotive Industry. Even with the economic crisis gripping the automotive industry globally, it still remains one of the key customers for the semiconductor design industry and the demand has been growing continuously.

Technology per se, driven by the priorities of fuel efficiency, emission reduction and safety, automotive companies are investing heavily in semiconductor solutions for hybrid vehicles, driver assistance systems and in-vehicle networking solutions. At the same time, each automotive manufacturer is faced by the challenge of reducing costs without compromising on product features and quality.

OEMs are thus expecting semiconductor companies to deliver not just chips but the solution platform comprising of the hardware platform along with the software. A solution that is very close to the final product validated, tested, certified and productized which creates a very good opportunity for semiconductor solution makers.

Additionally, at the silicon level, nano design for small chips is a leading market growth indicator. The clear trend observed is Low Power Chips for both Consumer Electronics & Automotive Applications and more analog and Mixed Signal content rather than only digital content.
