Rapoo breaks through Philippine IT market
Manila, February 6, 2013 - Peripherals brand Rapoo introduced its multiple new product lines in the Philippines to drumbeat its 10thyear anniversary as it also prepares itself to become a major player in the IT landscape alongside industry giants the world over.

Rapoo was founded in Shenzhen by 23-year-old Michael Tsang, initially, as an original design manufacturer (ODM) provider in Sept. 2002. Five years later, it formally introduced Rapoo as a brand and trade name. By December 2008, the label skyrocketed to the Top 3 companies lording over the market share in mainland China. By 2011, it opened its shareholdings and went public as a listed enterprise through IPOs with the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.
From a mere .8 percent market share in 2007, Rapoo has achieved in leaps and bounds by charting a growth 21 times in 2012, cornering 16.8 percent of the total market, and sharing the limelight with giants like Logitech and Microsoft. As a worthy recognition, Rapoo wins the prestigious IF Award in Germany; proof of its pioneering efforts that includes 110 patents to date.
And in celebration of its first decade in the IT industry, Rapoo has built the world’s biggest wireless product plant as an answer to its burgeoning market share all over Europe (Portugal, Austria, Belgium, Norway, the Netherlands and Switzerland), the Philippines and the rest of Asia Pacific.
