Yano Research Institute Surveys Taiwan's Mobile Phone Market.

Tokyo, Japan, Nov 16, 2005 - (JCNN) - Yano Research Institute (YRI) conducted a survey of Taiwan's leading mobile phone makers on the domestic phone market from October 17 through 22.

The number of handset users in Taiwan is expected to reach 21.55 million by year-end, down 410,000 year-on-year. The number will continue shrinking to 20.37 million by the end of 2006. The actual service penetration is about 60%.

By format, GSM handsets account for 94%, leaving the rest to CDMA2000 handsets. YRI forecasts that handset shipments in Taiwan will reach 6,595,000 units in 2005, almost the same last year (6.6 million units), and 6,890,000 units in 2006. Nokia and Motorola are two leaders with a combined market share of 45%. Among Japanese makers, Panasonic will be able to ship 300,000 units this year.

Camera phones account for about 35%, with shipments reaching 2.3 million units. Of the camera phones, 70% or 1.6 million units are equipped with a camera not capable of taking photos with 300,000 pixels.

Looking at production, Taiwan will manufacture 74.61 million handsets in 2005, up 37.6% YOY. Production will reach 89 million units in 2006. Taiwanese makers are not expected to begin shipping 3G phones until 2007.

The 79-page report, available only in Japanese, sells for 63,000 yen ($535).
