In this one also, obviously, we will grow higher than the market," Vickram Bedi, Senior Director, Personal Systems Business at HP Inc, India said.

The company entered in gaming laptop segment in February last year.
"We are already experiencing much higher growth in market. That is why we got quarter of market in just one year," Bedi said.
