Which country have better IT industry and why, India or China?
They can manufacture any integrated circuits other than 5 nm CPUs and they will have that technology soon and soon after that maybe 3 or even 2. They have many more university graduates coming out every year than any other country in the world and sometimes 8 times more — this is the figure for the US.
China's defence technologies surpass most American technologies in this field and India doesn't come even close to the US let alone China. India still cannot solve the issue with Rafele planes or make their own comparable aircraft.
China sells more IT equipement internationally and also locally in China than any other country.
I agree that India will be the second strongest economy in the world but to suggest that India will surpass China anytime over the next 30 — 50 or more years is, l believe, fanciful.
我认同印度将成为世界第二大经济体的说法，不过印度能在未来30 - 50年或更长时间内超越中国的看法绝对是异想天开。
I read a lot of answers similar to yours where the answer suggests that India is best at everything — this cannot be true as, in your heart, you know. Answers such as this just tell me that too many people in India have to make statements like yours so they don't feel insecure and to try to feel better about India than they really feel.
Please don't forget that the best people in India mostly leave to go to other countries and this is not a good thing for India. Need to start creating jobs for these meritorious people or India will have few left at some time in the future

I don’t think there is a doubt in hardware. I just want to focus on software.
I just came cross this web page: Chinese app developers have invaded India
and then I found this: Chinese apps hugely popular in India - Mobile World Live
and this: Supremacy of Chinese apps in the playstore and what India can learn from it
There are 44 apps among the top 100 in India, that is a big achievement.
I don’t know how many Indian apps are among the top 100 in China. I don’t expect more than 5.
Unless you don’t believe mobile apps are software, from the chart we know that Chinese are way ahead in software development.
In 2017, the total software revenues are RMB ￥5,503.7B, roughly US$800B  . As a comparison, India’s 2017 IT revenues are US 160B . China’s software revenues are 4 times more than India’s.
India has a larger software outsourcing business. But overall, China’s software business is much larger and stronger than India. China has a way bigger domestic software market. This healthy market is the reason why there are so many creative Chinese apps. India’s domestic software has yet reached the self-sustainable level. India has many talented software developers. The domestic market can’t support them. Many of them migrated to the states. Others are doing not so creative back office software service work.
India primarily produces “Hi Tech Coolies” or IT Babus to work for Foreign Powers. It is focused on revenue rather than investment and is essentially a trader, in this instance, of cheap sl ve labour.
I have been criticizing this Government and Private Sector Policy Perversity, publicly, since the days when I was considered a “Guru” of the Indian IT Industry, and my articles on IT used to appear regularly in Dataquest, Computers Today and Economic Times, and I was Co-Chairman of MAIT, Member (Informatics) of the Core-Group of FICCI as well as a member of the Rajaraman Committee (GoI) on Computer Education. (1985- 1993)
自从我被认为是印度IT业的“大师”以来，我就一直公开批评这种政府和私营部门的政策反常，我关于IT的文章也经常出现在Dataquest、Computers Today和Economic Times上，我还是MAIT的联合主席，也是FICCI核心小组的成员（信息学）作为拉贾拉曼计算机教育委员会的成员。（1985-1993年）
China is developing, creating and manufacturing original Hardware, Firmware, System Software and Application Software albeit with a foundation built out of piracy and hacking. China makes mega strategic investments in Research and Development, Education and Training
China is, obviously, a far superior IT Industry.

1.Why? Because clarity in language.
2.Not hard working, but can stretch more than Elastic.
3.You can use Face recognition for attendance (joke)
4.Most intelligent brain of the world.
5.Indian struggle so much thst they don't give up.
6.Indian believe on Power of Love.
7.For Indian, having job is more important than making money. Resources are available so easily and in abundance. You need not to bother about pay packages.
8.They don't take leave, infact you can call them on Diwali.
9.Once you given them onsite, they will work for a decade.
10.Good Family support system. That works in company , infact more closely, language and place bind them. So any good manager will respect that. Decode them accordingly. Telugu Team, Marathi Team, Gujrati team. So they select resources of interest which make them team bonding madly strong.
I have 2 degrees of separation awareness with China IT services.
For domestic demand with China’s local requirements in Chinese language China IT services industry is quite sufficient. Due to China’s insular economic and social construct, IT services for exports are yet to pick up. There is also an angle of pegged currency in China which makes pricing not very competitive in the export market.
On the software products and platforms, there is much net chatter, on how China is rivalling Silicon Valley. Since i dont have any direct exposure, my guess is as good as anybody.
From outside it looks like China’s IP protection (or lack of it) does help in building out next gen platforms.
Siva Kumar, Knows something about self-improvement
So far as SW (IT support/maintenance/bug-fixing) is concerned, India has the edge but that is eroding. As you can guess, getting expertise in SW/programming is not very difficult, it will not call for any large investment or long learning curve compared to developing expertise in HW.
For instance, Philippines and Ireland do a lot of customer support because they have no problem with American/British English accent as Indians have.
On the other hand, China developed very good edge in HW area, you see Chinese made gadgets everywhere. For that, they need some SW expertise anyway (e.g. firmware for their products). Due to this, Chinese are not inferior to anyone.
Bharat Nadhani, former Ex Mg Director
India has the better software Industry,
1.It possess the creativity and refinement potentiality,
2.Over 30 crores of Indians know the English, greater than the population of USA.
3.However, China is better in hardware, though their quality is very very inferior,
4.Indians are more apt in mathematics in general, than the USA,
5.China is poor in every research, innovation, they theft the technology of others and starts their reverse engineering, it is applicable in hardware, but not in software. The later requires the knowledge., China do not have.
Raul August, I am a blogger.
Hardware is dominated by China and India is no where near it.
Software Product development is also dominated by China but India is picking up.
Service sector is dominated by India but many countries are picking up because no state in India is helping them to settle in 2nd tier cities in India and bangalore is saturated
India is much much ahead of China on IT front. Reason is simple, India started much ahead of China on IT front and most importantly India has a large English speaking community which China lacks. China has realised this and is trying to catchup. At the same time TCS and other big IT companies have established their presence in China to take advantage of Chinese business.
Do your own research. Many answers here are baised specially by Indians. Indian IT industry is overglorified and huge only bcoz it offers IT service such as customer care etc. at cheapest rate.
IT has various departments. India is leading in Software IT & China is trying to lead in AI but without software : AI can't survive so India is the leader. Software is essential for programming in AI too.
Srikanth Throvagunta, Technical Researcher
If it is IT, it is India, as most Indians tend to work in software with Bangalore IT giants.
China is competing differently with the US in hardware gadgets and equipment.
IT industry hardware chip etc China India is far off
iT industry software India advantages over China timing with Europe USA English language
Bharath Bhat, (PhD) in Biomechanics from MIT, Manipal
India has better IT industry. But, China has better IT research centers in its universities. It is a matter of great shame. We have very limited research
Virendra Singh, MSc biotechnology CBSC & CBSC (2008)
In term of software development industry India best .but in manufacturing of hardware and CPU and new technology China on no 1 China also on way of beating USA .

China. Because the United States transferred technology to China and trained teachers for Chinese universities.
And India itself is trying to do something. Sometimes it works - sometimes not. There are too few universities and quality teachers in India.

India. Reason: Democracy.
You do not need glass buildings, supported by go nment infrastructure. You just need one desktop/laptop to change the world. And this can happen only in an de acy .

Among the above mentioned countries,it is definitely India.Because,
India’s IT services are world known ,we have one of the brightest software engineers in the world.
India has the second largest number of IT companies.
Bangalore and Chennai are the top IT hubs in India.
Recently SaaS(Software as a Service) trend is witnessed in India and it’s promising.
Besides,China too has good number of ITs,but I think their primary focus in on manufacturing.
India is much more Advanced!
