D-Link Corporation, the Taiwan-headquartered multinational,
expects sales of its Indian operations to cross $200 million
in the next five years. D-Link Corporation chief financial
officer A P Chen says the goal can be achieved on account
of several factors.
Indian networking and communications market is expected
to grow at a rate of over 25 per cent in the next few
years and the convergence of data, voice and video has
increased the spectrum of D-Link''s business.
India has recently launched high-end switching products
that will help the company penetrate the large enterprise
market estimated at Rs 1,500 crore. D-Link India''s R&D
and software division is developing its own IPRs to
manufacture products for domestic as well as global
business process outsourcing division should witness
robust growth as the business of all English-speaking
countries under D-Link Corporation''s fold will be transferred
to D-Link India.
Corporation is also looking at outsourcing work to its
Indian subsidiary in other areas like return material
authorisation and manufacturing. D-Link Corporation
spends around $300 million every year in outsourcing.
Corporation is a world-class manufacturing company and
has seven state-of-the-art facilities one in
Taiwan, two in China, three in India and one in the
US. It has a strong worldwide presence in networking,
internetworking, wireless LAN, digital home, bluetooth
and broadband products and a well-established global
distribution network with 29 sales offices in 21 countries.
