ASUS Committed to Deepen Market Shares in Nigeria
ASUS has disclosed plans to increase its market shares in Nigeria which is currently at 16 percent
Multinational computer hardware and consumer electronics company ASUS has disclosed plans to increase its market shares in Nigeria which is currently at 16 percent.
The electronics company had earlier disclosed that it will continue to create innovative technologies for everyone to enjoy in Nigeria as it targets a 40 percent activation rate.
The country manager for ASUS English-speaking Africa Simplice Zaongo disclosed that ASUS is driven by innovation and commitment to quality products that include notebooks, netbooks, motherboards, graphics cards, etc as it intends to deepen the market.
He said, “I must admit, when we compare ourselves with top competitors in the market, we still manage to achieve the number three position in the consumer industry in Nigeria, according to the IDC 2022.
“Besides being the No.1 consumer notebook brand in Asia-Pacific and East Europe, ASUS gaming notebooks account for the highest market share, No.1 worldwide.
“Our market share is 16 percent, while our activation share is 17 percent.” This means that when we push into the market, there is acceptability. That’s how we interpret it.
“But when we go back over the years, we noticed that market share was below 10 percent activation. We tried to analyze what the problem was.”
While responding to how ASUS intends to go beyond its 16 percent market share to its target of 40 percent, Simplice stated three strategies the company intends to use which are; brand awareness, affordability, and public enlightenment.
According to him, the primary goal for the next quarter is to reach a 40 percent activation rate.
“To achieve our goals, we have decided to strategically deploy three options. So, the first step is to create awareness. The second one is to educate customers. And the third one is to make our laptop affordable. We think it works for us”, he added.
It should be recalled that in February 2019, Investors King reported that ASUS plans to expand its operations in East Africa.
Last week, the electronics company introduced the ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED (UX3402) and Zenbook 17-Fold (UX9702) to the Media.
The company has three distributors in Nigeria, namely Coscharis Technologies, Mitsumi Distribution, and TD Africa, as well as five service centers in Lagos, Abuja, and Port Harcourt.
