Acer, the world’s second-largest PC maker, estimates its operations in China will make up more than 20% of its total sales by 2015.
Chairman J.T. Wang attributes the sales growth of its business unit in China to the tablet device market, where Acer’s competitors include the Apple iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The company, which launched two Android-based tablet computers in November, is hoping to capture a 15-20% share of the global tablet PC market next year.
In November, research firm Strategy Analytics issued a report saying the iPad held a 95% share of the tablet market.
Information Week reports Acer, along with rivals Asustek Computer, Toshiba and Samsung, are planning to launch tablets powered with Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chips.
