Worldwide Single-Function Printer Forecast, 2017–2021

Worldwide Single-Function Printer Forecast, 2017–2021

This IDC study quantifies the worldwide printer market opportunities and analyzes issues, trends, and product advances. It contains 2011–2021 data showing actual unit shipments, value of shipments (end-user spending), and average selling value (ASV), whereas 2017-2021 data is projected."The market shift toward MFPs and managed print services engagements will continue to push the worldwide single-function printer market toward greater maturity. However, developing regions (e.g., Asia, CEMA, Latin America) will be growth engines for this market category relative to the rest of the world. This IDC forecast offers a clear vision of the greatest single-function printing opportunities." — Max Pepper, research analyst, IDC's Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions
