While TV, Fridge and Washing Machines enjoys penetration of over 10% to 60% in India, AC penetration is as low as around 4% and thus this segment has vide scope of advancement going forward.RAC penetration in neighboring countries ranges from 30 to 100%.

Company is a market leader in Indian RAC, OEM/ODM segments and has comprehensive product portfolio to suit the requirements of its customers. AEIL has 11 manufacturing facilities at 7 strategic locations and thus enjoys proximity of its prime customers. To stay tuned with the futuristic requirements, it keeps spending on R&D and backward integration. In last five years it made two acquisitions i.e. PICL in 2012 and IL Jin in 2017 and is now able to offer maximum solutions under one roof.
