Deep-tech Sector in India is Growing

As the global market for edge AI is projected to reach $8 billion by 2027, driven by advancements in AI-powered edge solutions for factories, mobility, and entertainment, Myelin Foundry is well-positioned to capitalise on this growth. Additionally, the Indian government has announced plans to launch a Digital India Innovation Fund to support Indian deep-tech startups, further bolstering the sector’s potential.

According to AIM Research report, Indian AI and analytics startups received a record-breaking $1,108 million in funding in 2021, demonstrating investors’ growing trust and confidence in the sector. Additionally, a NASSCOM report found that deep-tech startups in India have raised $2.65 billion in funding this year, and over 30% have filed for patents. With more than 4,000 people employed across 14 potential deep-tech unicorns, the sector is expected to double in size by 2026.
