Analyzing the Impact of Ink Tank Printers and MFPs on the Home and Office Printing Market
This IDC Market Perspective reviews and analyzes the history and impact of ink tank devices currently offered in the global home and office color inkjet market. This document investigates the factors that led to their introduction and the advantages and disadvantages ink tank printers and MFPs have compared with cartridge printers and MFPs.
"While ink tank technology is relatively new to markets with low levels of print volume, its global success is hard to ignore. It could have a detrimental effect to the inkjet supply revenue stream in these markets where more users only print occasionally. Still, this is one of the few growing trends within the color inkjet market, and vendors should look for ways to maximize its implementation without causing negative disruption."— Max Pepper, research analyst, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions
