Acer, the world’s third largest supplier of personal computers, said at a press conference in Taiwan that it would work hard to become the world’s top vendor of mobile computers. Besides, the firm also asserted that in 2009 it would at least sustain its market share and revenue, but if all goes well, both would be up.
Acer is a company that has very favourable positions at the moment: it owns well-known Acer and Packard Bell brands in Europe as well as Gateway company in the U.S. Provided that Acer has a high-quality and high-performance products, the firm will definitely be in position to either secure or increase its market share or earnings, the reports claim.
Acer shipped around five million netbook personal computers in 2008, according to Mr. J.T. Wang, the president of the Acer conglomerate, who projected the company to ship 12-15 million of the devices in 2009, which isl likely drive up the company`s total notebook PC shipment by 25-30% from last year’s volume.
Regardless of the global financial crisis, Mr. Wang asserted his company`s market share and operating income for this year would surge from last year. Acer originally planned to attain the goal of taking the No.1 title in 2011, and Wang`s latest spot forecast suggests the company will shorten the time. He said it is meaningful to make Taiwan`s homegrown brand known globally if his company could accomplish the goal earlier than originally planned.
