Taiwanese PC maker Asus is on track for a record-breaking year in terms of sales in the local market, its top executive in the Philippines said.
George Su, Asus Philippines country manager, said the PC maker remains a top player in three categories: consumer PCs, gaming PCs, and business PCs.
Su said Asus remains on top of the heap as far as gaming PCs are concerned with a 37% market share. The executive said this is due to the continued strong showing of Asus’ “Republic of Gamers” product line which remains to be the top choice when it comes to PC gaming.
In terms of commercial laptops, Su said Asus is on track to achieve a 30% market share by 2022. In the same timeframe, he said Asus is on track to snag a 26.8% market share when it comes to business PCs.
He noted that this September, Asus recorded its strongest month yet in the Taiwanese company’s 30 years in operation. “We are on track to have 2019 as our best year yet,” Su said.
