Hardcopy Vendor Financials, 4Q21: Vendors Prioritize High-Margin Devices as Supply Chain Woes Continue

This IDC Market Perspective provides excerpts from public financial disclosures by leading hardcopy vendors and details the impact of COVID-19 and supply chain issues on performance and forecasts."Demand continued to outpace supply in 4Q21, with component shortages joining container shortages as a significant obstacle.
