This IDC presentation sizes the market for internet cafes (iCafes) within the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) region, or APEJ, and provides analysis and commentary on select markets within the region. It also examines some of the challenges faced by the iCafe industry and provides suggestions to vendors on how to best navigate through them.
"Within APEJ, iCafes have historically been a big vertical market for PC vendors," says Sam Reynolds, market analyst, Client Devices, IDC Asia/Pacific. "However, given changing consumer tastes, the iCafe market isn't the same reliable channel for PCs it once was."
