Asia is still considered as a potential market for IT vendors. The future of IT is here!
Intel Corp., the world’s biggest maker of semiconductors, said Tuesday it expects the personal computer market in the Asia-Pacific to account for 30% of global PC sales by 2010, up from the current 25%.
In an interview with Dow Jones Newswires, Intel Asia-Pacific General Manager John Antone said he expects the company’s operations in Asia to contribute more to Intel’s global revenue as sales from the region rise in the coming years.
Intel’s operations in Asia, excluding Japan, already contribute 51% of the chipmaker’s total revenue, Antone said, without giving his target revenue-contribution figure.
He said the growth of the PC market in Asia will be fueled by emerging markets like China and India as well as the continuing decrease in prices of personal computers.
