It houses more than a hundred industries, including IT industry leaders such as Wipro,Hewlett-Packard, Motorola, Infosys, Siemens, ITI,Satyam etc. The area is maintained by Keonics, which provides all the necessary infrastructure.
Electronics City also is the home of the International Institute of Information Technology - Bangalore which is one of the premier graduate schools in India, focussing on all aspects of Information Technology..

In recent years, the main highway connecting Electronics City with Bangalore has seen a large increase in vehicular traffic, causing traffic jams at several road junctions. Currently, major infrastructure improvements are taking place including widening of the road and the building of a 9 kilometer elevated highway. It promises to reduce and redistribute the traffic for a smoother flow. The highway or Hosur road, also has some buildings of some major IT players like BOSCH, Sasken, Convergys etc, along with showrooms of major auto manufacturers like Volvo,Audi,BMW,Toyota,Honda etc.
