Global printer sales growing?

Global printer sales growing?

August 31, 2016

The latest analysis from IDC suggests that there are “signs of improvement” globally, thanks to laser printer sales.globalhcp

The results, from IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker, found that the global hardcopy peripherals market saw “signs of improvement” in the second quarter, with the “rate of the decline” slowing down. Shipments only contracted by 3.8 percent year-over-year to 23.1 million units, with this improvement “largely driven by strong demand” in both the colour laser (over 21ppm) and monochrome laser (21 to 30ppm) segments.

The colour laser segment saw 18 percent growth, while the monochrome laser segment saw an 8.9 percent year-over-year increase as well, and IDC pointed out that on a regional basis, the Asia-Pacific excluding Japan saw 6.6 percent year-over-year growth in shipments of around eight million units. This was “bolstered by strong performances” in China, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam, while on an OEM basis, Epson saw “double-digit year-over-year growth” of 10.4 percent.

The analysts noted that this was “fuelled” by growth in “six out of eight regional markets”, and Epson also grew shipments by 13.3 percent year-over-year in business inkjet in Western Europe alone. Canon saw a yearly growth of 1.4 percent globally, with shipments reaching 4.8 million in the second quarter, and its “best results” came in the Asia-Pacific market, with a 19.4 percent year-over-year growth “driven by increased traction for its ink tank series” of PIXMA printers.

HP Inc remains the first-placed OEM worldwide, with over eight million shipments in the quarter, but actually saw a 13.7 percent decline year-over-year, with 36.6 percent market share compared to 40.8 percent last year. Canon saw a 1.4 percent increase and holds a 20.6 percent share of the market, while Epson’s aforementioned growth has seen it hold third place.

Brother, in fourth place, saw a 1.5 percent year-over-year decline for a 7.3 percent share of the global market, while Samsung holds fifth place after an 8.9 percent year-over-year decline.
