Electrophotographic Printing Market in Japan 2015-2019

About electrophotographic printing

Electrophotography, also known as xerography, is a printing technique that is used in photocopy machines, laser, and LED printers. It works on the works on the basis of electrostatic charges. It is based on two phenomena: materials of opposite electrical charge attract and some materials become better conductors of electricity when exposed to light.

Technavio's analysts forecast the electrophotographic printing market in Japan to grow at a CAGR of 1.70% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Electrophotographic Printing Market in Japan 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Electrophotographic Printing Market in Japan: Canon, Kodak, HP, Konica and Fuji Xerox

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Jadason Enterprises, MGI Digital Graphic Technology, Ricoh, The Imaging Systems Group, and Xeikon.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Electrophotography or electrophotographic printing is a popular choice for commercial applications due to its cost-effectiveness, ability to print on a large scale, and high speed. The commercial use of the technique accounted for over 50% of total electrophotography revenue generated in Japan in 2014. Saturation in the printing market is one of the main factors contributing to the declining revenue of the overall printing market.”

According to the report, electrophotographic printers offer many benefits over inkjet printers, such as the ability to retain print even when exposed to light for longer periods. This will likely drive the demand for large-format electrophotographic printers.

Further, the report states that electrophotography poses serious environmental hazards, as these printers use the harmful substance selenium. This has created an additional burden for vendors to continuously innovate environmentally friendly printers to meet the changing printing requirements of customers.
