Western Europe Hardcopy Forecast, 2019-2023

This IDC Market Forecast discusses the Western Europe hardcopy market, segmented by speed range technology, price band, and country, as well as predicts its performance from 2019 to 2023."The hardcopy market is in decline — some segments of the market are decreasing faster than others. However, there will be pockets of opportunities, and the number of printed pages still runs into hundreds of billions. Some of the more successful OEMs are switching some of their resources toward IT services, and one way they are gaining traction is through acquisition. Markets are moving at such a pace that OEMs simply don't have enough time to organically grow these services, so they are simply acquiring them," said Phil Sargeant, program director, Imaging Hardware and Document Solutions.
