Tata Group to Develop Fab in Dholera


This new initiative from Tata Electronics will script a new era in the global semiconductor ecosystem.

In a significant step towards creating an indigenous semiconductor ecosystem in India, Government of India has approved a proposal from Tata Electronics to build a mega semiconductor fabrication facility(Fab) in Dholera, Gujarat, in partnership with PSMC.

Dr. Randhir Thakur, CEO & MD, Tata Electronics said, “This marks a beginning of a new era for India.  Tata Electronics is proud to play a prominent role in strengthening the global semiconductor ecosystem. Our partnership with PSMC provides access to a broad technology portfolio in leading edge and mature nodes including 28nm, 40nm, 55nm, 90nm & 110nm and also collaboration for high volume manufacturing. We are confident that the upcoming Fab will support our ambitions of ‘Make in India, For the World’. We will be able to serve our global customers’ requirements for supply chain resilience and meet the growing domestic demand.”

Frank Huang, Chairman, PSMC said, “Tata Group is one of the most established and well-respected names in India and globally. We are very excited to enter in partnership with Tata group, that I believe will script a new era in the global semiconductor industry. Semiconductor industry presents a large and growing opportunity, and India is uniquely placed to capture this opportunity.”

“On one end, India has a large and growing domestic demand and on the other end global customers are looking at India for supply chain resilience. There could not have been better time for India to make its entry into semiconductor manufacturing industry. This partnership has the potential to redefine the contours of global semiconductor manufacturing and we are looking forward to collaboration with Tata Electronics,” Frank added.

N Chandrasekaran, Chairman, Tata Sons, said, “Tata Group has a tradition of pioneering many sectors in the country, and we are confident that our entry in semiconductor fabrication will add to this legacy.”

“With AI-led digitisation of every aspect of human existence, semiconductors will be the most critical building block. By 2030, Global semiconductor industry is expected to grow to US$ 1 trillion and Indian semiconductor demand is expected to cross US$110bnIndia’s entry in the semiconductor manufacturing will significantly de-risk global supply chains and will make India a very important player in the global semiconductor industry,” N Chandrasekaran added.

“We are proud to lead India’s entry into global semiconductor fabrication. This will also accelerate our progress towards providing high-technology employment opportunities for the youth of India,” N Chandrasekaran concluded.

This new initiative from Tata Electronics will bring to India a portfolio of cutting-edge semiconductor technologies, advanced skill set and talent, and a network of semiconductor manufacturing suppliers and ecosystem partners.

The fab construction will begin this year with a total investment of up to INR 91,000 crores (~US$11bn) and will generate over 20,000 direct and indirect skilled jobs in the region. With this announcement, Tata Electronics enters the global semiconductor industry.
