Industry in need of consolidation


Acer CEO
Gianfranco Lanci, the man behind the company's renaissance over the past couple of years, says the industry needs consolidation, and that some companies are bound to be squeezed out of the market.

In a recent interview, Lanci said the top three PC makers, HP, Dell and Acer, need to take out Toshiba and Sony. He claims Japanese PC makers are "at the weakest today".

This would obviously enable the top PC makers to increase margins and drop retail prices, making their products even more competitive and squeezing the little guys out.

Lanci also said that Asustek and Lenovo need to take a long hard look at their aspirations of functioning as independent companies. He says Lenovo is heading in the wrong direction, and that it has been struggling since it acquired IBM's PC business.
