U.S. MPS and BPS Printer and MFP Laser Hardware Forecast, 2016–2020: An Analysis by Technology

U.S. MPS and BPS Printer and MFP Laser Hardware Forecast, 2016–2020: An Analysis by Technology

This IDC study quantifies the U.S. MPS and BPS printer and MFP laser hardware market opportunity. The forecast is segmented by product type, technology, and MPS and BPS. The forecast contains data for the U.S. markets for 2011–2020. Unit shipment information is presented. Data for 2011–2015 is based on actual market data, whereas data for 2016–2020 is projected.IDC predicts that despite some growth segments in color laser, the overall MPS and BPS hardware market will follow the overall hardware shipment trend of declining growth.Key highlights include:BPS is expected to grow slower than MPS in all segments.MPS and BPS growth rates are highest in color laser printers and MFPs.The largest markets in terms of shipment volume for both MPS and BPS are monochrome laser printers and MFPs.The segments that are growing the fastest are color laser MFP MPS and BPS segments, with 6.2% and 5.8% CAGRs, respectively."Even though the U.S. hardware market is mature, and the MPS and BPS market is also maturing, there remain areas of growth. The fastest-growing segments are the BPS and MPS color laser MFP segments. It is very important for vendors to develop and expand their MPS and BPS offerings, building on their traditional strengths and offering differentiation." — Alyson Frasco, director for IDC's Hardcopy Peripherals Trackers and Forecasts
