dc.description.abstract Electronics manufacturing industry is one of the leading industries in the world. Singapore, Korea and Malaysia are some of the ultimate success examples in the Asian region. But situation is right opposite when it comes to Sri Lanka. Over past thirty years, the country was able to establish just above thirty electronic based manufacturing organizations. Hence it is worthwhile to excavate the reasons behind it. In that context, the objective of this exploratory research study was to identify the main barriers associated with sluggish growth of the industry followed by a strategic framework which was developed to overcome the identified hurdles and leverage the industry to its vision. Furthermore study provided necessary recommendations and suggestions for the same. A few related studies had been carried out so far to analyze the different aspects of the industry. Applicable concepts for the research were found in literature review and six dimensional external environment analysis tool “PESTLE” was occupied for the same. The conceptual framework was designed to ascertain barriers associated with the industry, followed by analysis of variables and classification of barriers. Outcome of analysis were used to craft strategic framework and recommendations as well. Both quantitative and qualitative methods have been employed for this study. Since the entire population is low, a questionnaire was distributed among two to three senior management officers in each organization. Above respondents were selected as convenient samples which confined to a total of 65 respondents. In addition structured interviews were taken place with industry experts in an orderly manner whenever needed. The obtained raw data were analysed in a structured way. Then, it revealed that, there exist fourteen main barriers affecting on the development of electronics industry. Out of which eleven were used to craft the strategic framework and rest were used to formulate suggestions and recommendations to government and individuals. Lack of long term national policy, deficient in FDI for capitalization, high OPEX indicators and low quality in infrastructure are some of the key findings of this research. Therefore, this research provides a guideline for leveraging electronics manufacturing industry in the country. en_US
