Inkjet in short supply

May 15, 2020

As the market adapts to the coronavirus situation, delays emerge as the demand for inkjet grows.

Since the pandemic lockdown started the demand for inkjet printers and consumers has grown. In March we reported that one Netherlands retailer told us “We sold 150 inkjet printers last week, it was all our stock.” We contacted him again yesterday and it is a slightly different story. He shared with us that “we sold another 420 printers in April and so far this month another 150, or we will as soon as they arrive.”

Several other retailers are reporting disruptions in the production or delivery cycle that lead to delivery delays from most OEMs. German OEM wholesaler Winterholt & Hering GmbH, took to LinkedIn to advise customers [translated from German] “The effects of the Coronavirus are now clearly felt in the consumer materials #OEM market. Numerous disruptions in the production or delivery cycle lead to delivery delays and bottlenecks, especially in the ink sector (HP, Canon, etc. For this reason, it is not always possible for us to meet your possible best-before date (MHD) specifications.”

Earlier this month Armor reported that Armor said that “demand for certain inkjet products (orders have grown by 200% compared to April 2019). wta Carsten Weser GmbH, a leading remanufacturer in the German market “is looking for empty printhead cores to meet demand.” Meanwhile Jeremy Gilchrist, director at UK based BCMY Ltd, reports “There seems to be a real shortage from Tier 1 Distribution in the UK for OEM inkjet [and] inktank”
