What manufacture and family of 8051s do you intend on targeting?

The required programming techniques vary widely from one manufacture to another and well as between different variants of the same manufacture.

Well, I would say that it would depend on the location. In Malaysia, it can be different from Bangladesh or somewhere in Europe or in USA. In Bangladesh, there is almost no market for 8051 programmer, whereas, in India, I think there is a pretty large market.

You should find out up to what extent 8051 is used in Malaysia. Ask among your colleagues and friends and see how many of them use it. Then, you may search in different forums to see the extent of use of 8051 in Malaysia and then you can decide for yourself.

There seems to be plenty of USB programmers which can program the AT89S51/52, in other words there are plenty of AVRisp designs and clones available.

However if you could produce a programmer which could reliable program other members of the Atmel AT89SXX series there could be a market.

It is a topic of frequent discussion in this forum:

Can 89S programmed using USBasp?
