Chinese factories are picking up production of Vuvuzela's, as demand continues to increase. The trumpets have become an icon of the 2010 World Cup, albeit after some controversy.

Chinese factories roll out vuvuzelas for the FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Demand is still growing for the controversial horns, 90 percent of which are made in China.

Wu Yijun, General Manager of Ninghai Jiying Plastic Products Factory said "From January to April this year, we were producing 250,000 vuvuzelas every day. The production stopped in April but there has been a gradual increase in our production in recent days. The demand from the Chinese market is surpassing our production capability."

The increasing number of orders isn't only boosting profits, it's also boosting morale among workers.

They're honored to see their work on TV screens around the world.

Wu Jinyan, Worker of Ninghai Jiying Plastic Products Factory said "At first, we did not know that this vuvuzela trumpet would become this popular. After we realized the vuvuzela had become so famous, our staff felt very pleased with our work."

Sales of vuvuzelas, thanks to the World Cup, are expected to exceed 20 million US dollars this year.
