International Data Corporation (IDC) has released figures pertaining to the worldwide page volume from digital hardcopy devices, which is stated to have climbed to 3.1 trillion in 2010. Developing regions have experienced a 7.3 percent page growth compared to 2009, although page volume in developed markets declined by 1.3 percent year over year.
Overall growth was 1.4 percent, with Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe as standout regions, entering double-digit page growths.
MFPs remained the “dominant force” in terms of page volume and installed base for inkjet, and colour laser devices continued to find popularity in developing regions across both printers and MFPs. “Affordable colour and select developing economies are driving colour in developing markets. Measured against the backdrop of managed print services (MPS) and workflow digitization, colour remains a bright spot for vendors in developed economies.”
HP remain the top vendor for overall worldwide page share in 2010, with Canon and Xerox also retaining two and three rankings in worldwide page share, although “Xerox’s momentum in laser pages helped it close the gap with Canon”.
