According to this recently released report from the Evans Data Corporation, more developers are using Ajax in the emerging markets than they are in North America.
The latest Emerging Markets Development Survey from Evans Data Corp reveals developers in Emerging Markets are embracing AJAX. Over 400 developers from Eastern Europe, Brazil, China, and India contributed to the study. Evans Data Corp found AJAX adoption is generally higher in the Emerging Markets then in North America. Brazil is breaking through the pack with 25% of developers using the technique. China has the lowest adoption rate with a little over 16%, closer to North American levels of AJAX adoption which are just below 18%.
They note that the emerging markets are just adopting it more aggressively than seen before with only an upward slope in the future. They also mention the adoption of other technologies, both web-related and not, such as PHP, Flash, Linux, and Windows.
