Acer’s Predator range is one of the most recommended and critically acclaimed gaming products in the world. Recently, the company recognised the mass market potential in the Middle East and North Africa region and started investing their assets to grow, and it finally paid off.
Acer’s MEA General Manager Paul Collins expressed his excitement to report a 52% growth on revenue and 68% growth in volume in the MENA region’s sales. He discussed Acer’s interest in growing the esports scene in the region, while maintaining and growing their 18% in the UAE gaming notebooks market alone.
We are delighted with the success the Predator range has had in the region. Gaming and eSports in the Middle East is rapidly evolving and is valued at $3 Billion, according to Newzoo. With that in mind, as shown by latest results from GFK, Acer currently holds a market share of 18% in the UAE notebook gaming landscape alone. This highlights our focus within this segment and commitment to expanding the gaming industry in the region, while also empowering the next generation of homegrown eSports champions
For those interested in following their MENA accounts, links to their respective Facebook and Twitter pages are in the statement below.
To connect and engage with the regional gaming community, Acer Middle East has launched Facebook and Twitter profiles, dedicated to its Predator range. The newly created Predator pages will act as the go-to platform for product information, game play recaps, industry trends, gaming tips and tricks and local gaming news in the region.
Great news for the MENA region and we hope to see the esports scene continue to grow with the support of Acer’s Predator brand and other major companies as well.
