This may be due an increasing to superior technology  was giving was much better than the quality provided by the peers China and Hong Kong, and Indian consumers were preferring high quality products compared to cheap products and also for the fact that millennials in India are choosing innovative products with better technology which is easy to use and help save time.

Out of the total commodities under  HS Code 851762 majority of the imports are from  Modems(modulators-demodulators) (HS Code 851762 30) and Other products related to HS Code 851762(HS Code 851762 90) the main reason would be the growing use of technology and science and to make India pollution free with the introduction of various alternatives which reduces the consumption of natural resources, one such incident is the introduction of Electric Vehicles with ISO( International organization for standardization) IEC15118 standards which is basically for electric road vehicles and electric industrial trucks,which is already used extensively in the United States where the Electric Vehicles(EV) are produced by TESLA and in other countries.The introduction of Electric Vehicles(EV)in India, in huge number will lower the consumption of petrol and diesel vehicles and in turn make the country a little pollution free and a better place to live. The projects have already been assigned to Giant auto manufacturers such as Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd and Tata Motors Ltd , which cover the majority of the Indian Auto industry, thought the transformation is in the initial stages but the government of India is aiming to have more than 30% vehicles run on electricity by 2030. This initiative will attract a lot of importers from various parts of the world to have More Exports to India of the products related to electric Vehicles such as Electric Vehicle(EV) charger, Electric Vehicle charger communication modems, cables other modems etc. It is also said that the duties and taxes imposed on the imports for these commodities will reduce, thus making exporters of such products from different countries excited especially Korea who is in a big way eyeing India as an important market to to have More Exports to India.

Power is most crucial component for economic growth of the nation. The changes in the existence and development of adequate infrastructure in power sector of India is essential for the sustained economic growth of India. The consumption of electricity has been increasing over the period of time due to the innovations and technologies and also policies led by Indian government to have electricity in all the villages and remote areas of India, due to the increase in demand of electricity in India, massive addition to the installed generating capacity is required. Better transmission and generating electricity components are required to fulfil the rising demand of electricity, better power grid transmission systems are required to transmit and transform electricity to various power substations to parts of the country. For better quality transmitters India imports those transmitters from countries like Korea, China USA etc having Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) technology for transmission in large wavelengths and wide bandwidths and having High-availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR)  a network protocol for Ethernet that provides seamless failover against failure of any network component. This will lead to more inflow of products under HS Code 851762 and More Exports to India, with the innovations brought by Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (POWERGRID),which is an Indian state-owned electric utility company headquartered in Gurugram, India. POWERGRID transmits about 50% of the total power generated in India on its transmission network.Technology and innovations have constantly increased in India and people have also upgraded the knowledge with the same to come in line with the new things that are constantly coming into the market.

Ever since the discovery of internet and mobile phones in 1995. In India out of 3 people 2 people have mobile phones, which means that people in India are extensively depended on mobile phones and other be it rich or poor or be it urban or rural areas everyone nowadays has a basic mobile phone.

Its not just the use of mobile phones but also the use of wireless telephones, satellite televisions, wireless computer parts, GPS, Bluetooth, Wifi etc has made the lives easy and not all these devices are manufactured in India, but they are imported in large numbers and many countries are doing More Exports to India of such products. Korea is one of the leading companies to have More Exports to India of the above product and Samsung being one of the giants surely encourages other Korean telecommunication companies to have their products in Indian market.In todays date almost every house has a internet connection which is provided by the internet service providers through cable modems and other communication devices, and network switches that connects devices together on a computer network by using packet switching to receive, process, and forward data to the destination device. CCTV(Closed Circuit Television) are widely used nowadays due to the increase in security in corporate and household buildings. The government has also proposed that CCTVs should be installed on railway stations and trains for safety purposes which will give a boost to the imports of CCTVs from different parts of the world.
