DUBLIN, Ireland — Research and Markets has announced the addition of “Development Strategies of Leading STB IC Design Houses in China” from the Market Intelligence Centerto their offering.

China is now the bastion of global digital STB manufacturing with over 200 STB assembly service providers in 2007. The STB IC market is, however, still dominated by STMicroelectronics and LSI. Chinese STB IC makers have only a limited market share and most are focusing on domestically developed Chinese standards. With China’s release of the DMB-TH terrestrial and ABS-S satellite broadcasting standards in 2007, new market opportunities have opened up for Chinese STB IC makers. The report examines the current developments of the Chinese STB IC industry in terms of leading companies’ background, products, R&D, and customers.
