This IDC Market Note provides an update on U.S. consumer and office print activity in 1Q20.
"While the first two months were business as usual, March saw a huge impact on equipment buying, with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing offices and schools to close nationwide. For low-cost inkjet and compact laser devices, the move to home learning and work was a positive for sales. But for workgroup devices, especially A3 MFPs, sales and contract-signings plummeted." — Amy Machado, research manager, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions at IDC
