Noted this from a press release today and thought it was interesting (edited for brevity)

Cogo Group, today announced that upgrades to High Definition Television ("HDTV") in China are accelerating with total subscribers reaching over 2 million. A combination of strong consumer demand and aggressive roll-out schedules are helping to fuel this growth.

Cogo previously revealed its design wins for HD solutions, which it will provide to multiple top-tier set-top box ("STB") manufacturers. The company had already begun to record material revenue by the end of 2009. Currently, Cogo is working with over 20 manufacturers of HDTV set top boxes, and the company continues to pursue new customers.

Based on current projections, HDTV subscribers are expected to reach 6 million by the end of 2010. Cogo expects that over time the majority of China's over 1,000 city-based cable operators will ultimately roll out HDTV.

Given the country's increase in cable subscribers and base of 60 million digital subscribers, Cogo believes HDTV in China will reach over 30 million by the end of 2012. The company continues to believe that the preferred method for upgrade will include the purchase of a new set-top box.

Just about every consumer product record, including cars, will be broken by China over the next few years. The numbers in that country are mind boggling and we have difficulty in even imagining such high numbers. It is not a surprise that so many companies have expanded to China to cash in on such a hugh market.
