This IDC study outlines our predictions for the 2012 hardcopy market. In the recent past, we have discussed the transformation of the hardcopy market as part of our prediction activity. No longer do we focus merely on the conventional print hardware, supplies, and maintenance trends; rather, we expand the market's reach into services and other peripheral opportunities.
"IDC's predictions for the 2012 hardcopy market truly reflect a transformed marketplace. Much of the 2012 focus will be spent on emerging growth opportunities offered by an increasingly mobile and cloud-based IT infrastructure. We believe that hardcopy vendors will need to consider these market developments in order to achieve success this year and in subsequent years," said Keith Kmetz, program vice president, IDC Hardcopy Solutions.
