SAB: What do you think is the potential of Bangladeshi market?
Ken: Well, the technology sector of Bangladesh observed huge growth over the last couple of years creating a huge consumer base. We just went to the IDB computer city and we find to be a very well equipped market and we found that people of Bangladesh are highly enthusiastic about new products. Before coming to Bangladesh, I did not know that there was so much demand of various technological products. I think Bangladesh is a great market for business and we need to put more effort to raise our brand awareness. After returning to Taiwan, we would definitely discuss on how to give more effort to popularize our products in Bangladeshi market.
SAB: Currently, what is the market share Vivtek Corp in Bangladesh?
Ken: Well, I can not give you any specific information, but as you know Bangladesh is comparatively a new market for us and there is a lot of room for growth. We are currently working on raising our brand awareness and our local partner, Global brand is doing very well. We have been working with them for the last one year and they have sold more than one hundred thousand units and the market size of Bangladesh is quite big probably around 2000-3000 units. So, as a new business, they did very well.
SAB: In future, are you going to expand your manufacturing facility in Bangladesh?
Ken: Right now, we have no such plan but as I have already told you that Bangladesh is a very big market and it has huge potential. We are currently focusing on raising brand awareness among Bangladeshi consumers and we would continue doing that. If we have a sizable market, then we might think of having our production facility in this country.
