The increase in GenAI adoption by IT services is propelling a demand for semiconductors across the world. The subsidies and sops offered by the Indian government for semiconductor industry has prompted big conglomerates domestically and internationally such as Tata Group and US-based Micron Technology and CG power to line up funds for investments in the country.

In a recent development, Tessolve CEO Raja Manickam announced the launch of his fabless semiconductor startup, iVP Semi. The start-up based in Chennai raised $5 million from multiple investors to design semiconductors at its upcoming plant in Tamil Nadu.

It is reported that the Indian semiconductor space is projected to skyrocket to a market size of $150 Bn by 2030.
