The ASP market has been slow to take off according to the latest research from analysts Frost & Sullivan.

However, Frost & Sullivan predicts the market is due to pick up over the next few years, despite poor initial uptake of the technology. The research says the market will grow from $275m in 1999 to over $13bn by 2005, driven mainly by a demand from small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The growth will also be fuelled by general increased use of the internet by businesses. The Frost & Sullivan report warns of "extravagent" claims of cost savings possible from vendors anxious to sign people up to the new model. silicon.com's ASPs guide
