Western Europe MFP Segment Forecast, 2018-2022

This IDC Market Forecast discusses the MFP segment in Western Europe and provides a five-year forecast on MFP segment shipments."Continued transition from paper to digital means will negatively impact the amount of hardware devices being purchased across all buyer segments. Private and public businesses are printing fewer pages, resulting in falling hardware sales. However, with competition becoming more intense between the same number of suppliers, many OEMs are trying to target the market with other services and solutions to keep revenues and profits healthy. Further industry consolidation will likely occur," said Phil Sargeant, program director, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions, IDC Europe.
