This IDC study quantifies the worldwide hardcopy peripheral printer market opportunities and analyzes issues, trends, and product advances in this market. It contains 2009–2014 data showing actual unit shipments, value of shipments (end-user spending), and average selling value (ASV), whereas 2015–2019 data is projected.
"The worldwide peripheral market generates over $58 billion in value of shipments. As inkjet shipments decline globally, there is a big opportunity in higher-value segments, especially color laser MFPs and products that are solutions enabled. This IDC forecast will show which MFP and printer technologies and which regions translate to the greatest opportunity." — Amy Machado, research manager, IDC's Hardcopy Peripheral Solutions
