Ko’s journey in the LED technology sector began over 30 years ago, during which he quickly ascended through the ranks due to his outstanding leadership skills and technical proficiency. His seven-year tenure at Siemens as a Senior Production Operation Manager provided him with invaluable experience in managing large-scale manufacturing operations and optimizing efficiency.

Ko stated that this investment will expand our assembly, manufacturing, and warehousing capabilities in the country.” The company currently has an assembly facility in Chennai and sources up to 55% of its components for some products from Indian suppliers.

With a client portfolio that includes major companies such as Reliance, Adani, and BQ Prime, AET sees the “Digital India” policy as a significant driver of LED display adoption in the country.

According to a report by market research firm IndustryArc, the Indian display market size is forecast to reach $18.64 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 11.7% from 2022 to 2027. The significant adoption of signage and interactive displays by various industry verticals, including healthcare, education, sports, and entertainment for branding, advertisement, and broadcasting, has positively influenced the Indian display market.
