This study is based on Data Envelopment Analysis to analyze the performance of semiconductor product manufacturing Indian IT companies. The study will explore the patent related activities and variables of randomly selected 32 semiconductor product manufacturing companies in India. These companies have their respective Research and Development Centres in India. It is a highly volatile industry and hence, it is very important for every semiconductor company to perform to stay in competition. The findings suggest that as per input-oriented DEA with VRS (Variable Return to Scale) assumption, most of the semiconductor companies are not utilizing their input resources efficiently and to follow the benchmark companies.
