New Delhi: Global headset maker GN on 12 June said it will expand its presence in the Indian market to 1,500 stores by the end of this year and focus on BPO industry, office and enterprise segments in the country.
The company, which sells its products - bluetooth mobile headset and other handsfree devices - under the brand name Jabra, has about 1,000 stores in the country at present.
The bluetooth headset market in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of 74% and reach at over eight million units by 2011 and to one million by the end of this year, GN Regional Managing Director (Middle East, India, Africa) Vincent Pena told reporters here.
The professional (contact centre and enterprise) headset market in the country is also likely to grow at a CAGR of 21% over the next five years, he said.
