Acer said it closed the period with a growth rate of 35.2% and in the EMEA region, maintained its second position in the global PC market and strengthened its top ranking spot in the notebook sector with a 38.1% growth rate (Q2, 2006 over Q2, 2007) and a 20.3% market share.

And, according figures recently posted by analyst firm Gartner, Acer recorded a year-on-year growth rate of 35.2% in the total PC Market, almost three times the market growth. Gartner also revealed that the EMEA region's general PC growth in Q2 was encouraging, with the PC industry growing 12.8% year-on-year.

"The IT industry is experiencing a considerable transformation, and we have identified two segments that have driven our product offer," says Krishna Murthy, general manager, Acer Computer Middle East.

"Implemented at the beginning of 2007, our organisational structure has taken a different approach from our product posting. Focusing on delivering solutions that satisfy specific market needs has resulted significant growth and vastly improved customer satisfaction."

Acer has strengthened and retained its leadership in the EMEA notebook sector and has established itself as market leader in Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Italy, The Netherlands, and Spain, he claimed.
