In the era of smartphone gaming where the PC market is declining, Taiwanese electronics major ASUS is aiming for 50 per cent market share in the gaming laptops segment in India while increasing its retail presence from 100 to 200 stores by the end of this year, a top company executive has said.

“We are already the number one gaming laptop brand in India. Last year, we had around 23 per cent market share in the gaming laptops division in the country and this year, in the first four months itself, we have reached 40 per cent market share,” Arnold Su, Head of consumer Notebooks and ROG Business, ASUS India told IANS.

In addition, the company is aiming to increase its share in the consumer laptops division in India from 11 per cent to 15-20 per cent by the end of 2019.

“We noticed that not everybody is able to afford the Rs 60,000 or Rs 70,000 premium laptops. This year, we launched the new generation of Vivobooks with which, we are expecting to grab a larger market share in India,” Su noted.

“Laptop gaming is growing but people who are interested in playing top-of-the-line games or like to compete with teammates and other players would only get that kind of gaming experience on PCs,” said Leila Lin, Country Product Manager, ASUS India.

ASUS said it is expanding its retail footprint in the country and opening between seven to 10 exclusive stores evey month. The company hopes to touch the 200 stores count by the end of year.
