Tamil Nadu emerges as major base for electronic manufacturing services sector: analysts

Several EMS companies have set up factories in the Sriperumbudur and Tambaram areas for indigenous manufacturing, contributing to the State’s leadership in this segment, according to analysts.

As a sign of the State’s dominance in this segment, three Chennai-based companies are seeking to raise or raising funds through initial public offerings (IPOs). 

These include Bharat FIH (Foxconn Technology Group company) which is planning to raise about ₹5,003.8 crore; Avalon Technologies (₹1,025 crore) and Sryma SGS Technology which is currently in the market to raise ₹825 crore.
