Acer targets double digit growth in Saudi
Riyadh, March 13, 2014
Acer is targeting double digit growth in Saudi Arabia this year on the back of steady increase in demand for its new range of touch devices, the company said.
The global PC manufacturer has also signed a new partner in BDL, a leading name in the IT distribution business in the region, with operations across the GCC and Egypt.
The kingdom’s IT market, the largest in the GCC, is slated to grow from $3.8 billion in 2011 to $5.4 billion by 2017, according to Business Monitor International.
Acer is keen to capitalise on this growth, and the company’s new vice president for Middle East and Africa, David Drummond, remains positive that Acer can help the kingdom meet its robust need for world class PC products and solutions.
“KSA remains an increasingly strategic and important market for Acer. As the Kingdom’s IT sector continues to grow, Acer is committed to providing world-class technology and products to help fuel this growth,” commented David Drummond, vice president, Acer Middle East and Africa.
Drummond remains confident that Acer will ultimately become the preferred brand in the kingdom and the region.
Acer’s new VP brings with him over 20 years of experience, in-depth leadership qualities, and a wealth of customer relationships. He is keen to highlight the crucial role its channel partners play in making Acer’s empowering technology and products available to valued customers across the kingdom, said the statement.
Acer in 2014 is looking to introduce more competitive touch-based products in the kingdom, and to increase the company’s market share, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
