Acer Heads In New Direction Six New Companies Registered
They already dominate the US European and Australian PC gaming markets, now Acer is looking to deliver a new generation of gaming and business technology following the listing of six new businesses.
Acer Chairman and CEO Jason Chen believes the slowdown in the past quarter which was caused by Intel’s inability to deliver processer supply to PC companies after they cut a deal with Apple to manufacture modems for the iPhone will be overcome as new supply trickles into the market.
Several Companies who in the past have relied on Intel for processor supply are now moving to new suppliers with “amazing results” said one PC gaming manufacturer.
According to Chen Acer will see growth this year driven by sales of its gaming PCs, Chromebooks and B2b notebooks and desktops which in Australia are proving popular with large Corporations, Government and education departments.
Acer is currently the largest gaming notebook brand in the US and also became the top seller in the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region in December 2018, Chen said citing research firm’s figures.
Chen pointed out that Acer’s gaming PC sales had seen staggering growth until they slowed down in the fourth quarter of 2018 due to the lack of supply.
In 2018, Acer acquired a total of 476 patents, which will serve as the foundation of Acer’s development of innovative new gaming and products, with the Company currently developing several new product which are tipped to be revealed later this year at a New York launch.
Acer founder Stan Shih said that six of Acer’s affiliates including Acer Synergy Tech, Acer Cyber Security, Acer ITS and Altos Computing, will apply for listing or start trading on stock markets in 2019 as part of a major initative to expand Acer beyond just PC’s, gaming and commercial display.
