This IDC study delivers the managed print services (MPS) market size and forecast for the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) or APEJ region for the period of 2012–2016. It includes the markets in Greater China (China, Hong Kong and Taiwan), South Korea, Australia and New Zealand (ANZ), India, and SEA (Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Indonesia).
"MPS will become a feature of the broader APEJ region within the next five years generating revenues of US$1595 million at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17% by 2016," said Trevor Clarke, Research Manager, Infrastructure, IDC Asia/Pacific. "However, the maturity of each country in terms of adoption will remain fragmented in the short term and many opportunities will be in specific markets that host organizations with similar characteristics. Developed economies will lead the way with both the demand and supply side exhibiting mature approaches to managing their print and document environments. However, considerable opportunities also exist in the fast growing mega-cities across the region," Clarke adds.
