Made-in-China servers to dominate sensitive sectors

China is aiming for a 90 percent market share in home-made servers in finance and telecom markets by 2025, according to a government-backed committee.

The target, set by an advisory body to the central government on building the country into a high-end manufacturing superpower, is set to further push overseas products out of the market.

Chen Shanzhi, a member of the body packed with industry heavyweights and senior government officials, said the move aims to better protect information safety in key industries.

IBM Corp, Hewlett-Packard Co and other overseas companies are rushing to team up with Chinese companies in a bid to make their products easier to pass a tightening checkup of data security before entering government procurement markets where State-owned banks and telecom carriers are among the biggest spenders.

Chen said the market share of made-in-China basic software products in the finance and telecom sectors will also be lifted to about 75 percent in 10 years. Local software makers control less than half of the market today.
