IDC Canada Announces Winners of its Annual Print Vendor Awards

- March 10, 2016 -

International Data Corporation (IDC) Canada is pleased to announce the winners of its annual Print Vendor Awards for 2015. Winners include Brother, Canon, HP, Lexmark, Ricoh, Samsung, and Xerox. These vendors maintained the largest market share in various sub-categories of the printer market.

Winners of the IDC Canada Print Vendor Awards are awarded based on sales data acquired from the 2015 calendar year. Awards are issued to manufacturers with the largest market share in the following categories:

  • Sub-Technology (Laser, MFP/Printer, Colour/Monochrome)
  • Format (A3/A4)
  • Speed Range
  • *NEW - Total Market Category

The IDC Canada Print Vendor Awards are based on quantitative data from the Canadian Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker, a program that is, at its core, a comprehensive electronic database detailing changes and trends in the highly competitive print market. It provides a comprehensive view of the printing and imaging marketplace that assists with strategic business development efforts and product development, while also monitoring the market share of Canadian print vendors.

Quote Attributable to Evan Hardie, Research Manager, IDC Canada
"Pent up demand from 2014 was fulfilled in 2015. Consumer confidence levels surged upward with the federal election, though they dipped toward the end of the year as consumers became more pessimistic about their future job prospects and the economic outlook. The laser market was unsettled, though it exhibited positive growth throughout 2015. Once again we are pleased to award vendors who achieved top sales in specific categories of the print market in Canada."
