NEW DELHI : India is one of the top three markets for the telecom company, a senior official from Motorola in Asia Pacific region, said in New Delhi.

"China is our top market in the A-Pac region followed by Japan. India is placed after that," Amit Sharma, Motorola vice president and cluster president for India, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Philipines, said in New Delhi.

Sharma claimed the company was moving closer to number two position in the mobile handset segment while on the infrastructure side, it is closer to any of its competitors.

The company is already number two in its position on certain segment of mobile handsets.

"Last three months have been excellent for us. In fact the year gone by (2003-04) was fabulous. If we are not the market leader in the telecom infrastructure segment, we are on par with Ericcson on that. And on the handset front although India had been a Nokia-dominated market, the last three months, due to a slew of new launches, our marketshare has picked up," he said.

"During the last three months, on the back of strong sales, we are moving closer to number two position if not actually number two now", Sharma added.

He said broadband is a promising future growth area for Motorola in India . Broadband over cable is seen as a service on demand.

"Globally we are leaders in that field. India has 55 million cable homes, who are using analog devices. If they move to digital, it becomes a great opportunity for us. We are already developing products and doing pilots with some customers," he said.

He said the company will introduce 3G handsets in India as soon as operators are ready with their network.
