BANGALORE, India — India, with its huge consumer population and its intellectual capacity, is shaping up as a burgeoning market for semiconductors, according to the head of Texas Instruments Inc.

TI—the first multinational tech company to set up an R&D center in India, in 1984—will continue to commit resources to technology innovation from India, said Rich Templeton, TI’s president and chief executive officer.
