The present room air-conditioner market in Saudi Arabia is estimated at 3.3 million units, with an annual growth of 12 per cent per annum.

This comprehensive range of water cooling solutions primarily cater to the requirements of the commercial sector, with a special focus on commercial, healthcare, residential, education and hospitality segments.

Blue Star has put in place a dedicated team of professionals in the Saudi market, to support the local sales team. Several customised collaterals and advertising campaigns are being designed to build the Blue Star brand in this market.
