Taiwan spans up OEM CD-ROM biz

Japanese cede lion's share

The local press in the shape of Computex Online is reporting that Japanese manufacturers of CD-ROM devices have transferred the bulk of that business to Taiwan. According to the report, Taiwan is likely to account for over 40 per cent of the CD-ROM business in the near future. Japanese manufacturers are, instead, concentrating on DVD drive manufacturing. That's an area that Taiwan would also dearly love to get its hands on, as reported here. ®
