This IDC study provides a detailed analysis of the U.S. and worldwide total monochrome production opportunity. It quantifies and forecasts equipment sold into end-user production environments only. The study also segments the product categories into three product segments: light-production, mid-production, and full-production equipment. Forecasts are provided for shipments, value of shipments, and average shipment values (ASVs).
