AVL TIMES had the opportunity for an exclusive interview with Linda Chen, General Manager of Asia II Business at Absen. Ms Chen is responsible for Asia II business development as well as implementing Absen’s Asia II strategic plans, and was gracious to shares valuable insights of the company, and especially what’snext for the globally leading LED display manufacturer.



What aspects of Asia‐Pacific and/or Global market sectors make video technology an exciting industry to be involved in?

The really exciting thing is that LED technology is always evolving. For example, a recent development is MicroLED which is creating a lot of buzz as it has the capability to replace traditional display technology including projection and LCD video walls. This makes for an exciting future as the potential growth is exponential, creating new opportunities as it continues on its upward trajectory.


How much growth for your industry do you see in the next 2 years for the Middle East and APAC territories.

Absen is involved in many markets, so when analysing growth, we look at the vertical markets we operate in, as well as across all our regions. At present we are seeing huge growth in the corporate market – and this looks set to continue for some time yet. Alongside this, the OOH (Out of Home) market is likely to grow 10‐15% in the next 2‐3 years. When looking at regions, we are aware that there is much work to be done in Asia‐Pacific which, for us, makes it an exciting area in which to operate. EMEA however is a much more mature market, so the growth areas there are different to those in Asia‐Pacific.
