"IDC is forecasting growth in the worldwide MFP market, for both inkjet and laser, albeit low growth, especially when you consider inkjet. The growing number of managed print service contracts, pricing reductions, and vertical selling will drive laser and business inkjet MFP shipments through 2019. This IDC forecast will show which regions and which subsegments of the market show the greatest opportunity." — Amy Machado, research manager, IDC's Hardcopy Peripheral Solutions
