Western Europe MFP Installed Base, Page Volume, and Supplies 2014–2018 Forecast and Analysis
This IDC study provides an in-depth look at the Western European ink and toner supplies market for the inkjet and laser MFP segments. It contains quantitative and qualitative data analysis derived from actual MFP shipments and installed base calculations. Forecasts for total average annual print/copy volume, annual page volumes, MFP cartridge average selling prices (ASPs), MFP cartridge yields, MFP cartridge shipments, and MFP cartridge value of shipments are provided for 2014–2018.
The Western European MFP installed base is forecast to increase as the transition from single-function to multifunction continues. Although some markets such as consumer inkjet and entry-level monochrome segments decline, there are significant opportunities that have emerged and are flourishing. "Color and business inkjet are two segments where annual shipments are increasing, leading to sizeable installed bases which in turn will lead to increased pages in these areas," said Phil Sargeant, program director, IDC Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions. "Vendors with portfolios in such markets are well placed to capitalize on areas that are producing profitable pages even if the overall hardcopy page volume may decline."
