World print market continues to grow   11 June 2014   


According to data published by the IDC (International Data Corporation), 26.4 million printers and MFPs were sold in the first quarter of 2014.  This represents an increase of 2.1% over last year.  Q1 2014 was the third consuctive quarter showing year-on-year growth. 

Looking in more detail at the various market segments, inkjet represents 58.4% of all units sold (down 3% against the preceding quarter), while laser sales were up 4% to 38% in Q1 2014. 

Sales of monochrome laser machines were up 2.6% year on year, and now make up 80.1% of the laser market in terms of units shipped.  Color laser device sales were up 8.9% on the same period last year, and now represent 19.9% of worldwide laser sales.
