It is very encouraging to know that the Indian semiconductor market is estimated to grow to 100 billion in 2020. I think the semiconductor market in India was $6.5 billion in 2010 and is estimated to grow to $9.8 billion by 2012 (~50%). With this same growth rate, it might reach $50 billion by 2020. Is $100 billion not too optimistic?
