July 14, 2008 -- Research and Markets (Dublin, Ireleand) has released its "China Sourcing Report: AV Cables & Assemblies," based on in-factory tours and personal interviews with senior plant managers conducted by the research firm.
The firm notes that China is home to over 500 manufacturers responsible for producing more than half of the world's supply of AV cables and assemblies. Despite cost increases in raw materials, says the firm, "the industry is moving full-steam ahead," with makers ramping up their production efficiency and expanding their capability to produce advanced digital interface models.
The report is intended to help suppliers: determine which makers are adopting the HDMI standard in replacement of the standard AV interface; find out which vendors are enhancing efficiency to offer better value; discover which suppliers serve the world's leading brands such as Sony, Nokia, NEC and Philips.
