India Manufacturing and the Fight Against Counterfeit Sales: An Exploration with Arduino

Arduino Uno R4
Arduino is considering manufacturing in India. Violante considers fake Arduino boards the key reason for this discrepancy. Therefore, by starting local manufacturing, Arduino would sell its boards in India at reduced prices — in line with those of its Chinese counterparts. However, most of it results from the growth of local mobile phone manufacturing. Arduino is currently considering both large international EMS companies and smaller local players in India, which specialize in producing electronic boards or development boards, Violante told TechCrunch.
