Set-top-box shipments will reach 74.8 million units by 2008 from an estimated 36.4 million in 2003, according to a new study from IMS Research.

Much of the growth will come from the Asia-Pacific region, specifically China and India, IMS said.

More than 90% of worldwide TV households currently receive analog TV services, but the researcher expects nearly 25% to opt for digital services by 2008.
