You'll also receive an in-depth industry overview that focuses on price trends, new products, and other issues that will impact your sourcing activities over the next twelve months.

Report publisher, Mark Saunderson, said: "Telephony solutions are expected to drive growth in the worldwide VoIP market. Telephony product exports for 2006 are forecast to increase 52 percent year-on-year, revolving around the integration of wireless technologies, led by Bluetooth and WLAN.

"The convergence of voice and video applications is also expected to gain ground this year. Several companies in Taiwan already are including VoIP videophones in their product line-ups," he said.

The report indicates that buyers sourcing VoIP products from Taiwan, Hong Kong and mainland China can expect a growing yet very dynamic supply market in the coming year. Findings are based on in-depth manufacturer interviews, factory visits and surveys.

Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan Manufacturers Face Challenges

China Sourcing Report: VoIP Products notes that while Greater China's production and exports are growing, competition from makers in North America and Europe could reduce its worldwide market share. Taiwan's Market Intelligence Center forecasts that Greater China's share of the global market in 2006 could drop from 82 percent to 61 percent.

The report also shows:

-- Worldwide subscriptions for residential VoIP are expected to hit 197.2 million users by 2010, up from 4.8 million in 2004

-- Taiwan leads product development and production in Greater China with VoIP gateways, phones, terminal adaptors and routers

-- USB phones, USB gateways and high-end IP PBXs dominate VoIP production in mainland China

Hong Kong makers are positioning themselves in the middle ground between the high-volume capability of mainland China companies and the technological strength of the Taiwan makers.
