Wave 2: Examining the COVID-19 Impact on U.S. and Worldwide Printer Spending in 2Q20 and Over the Course of Full-Year 2020
This IDC Survey Spotlight examines the printer-specific question and compares the early April data set (see Examining the COVID-19 Impact on U.S. and Worldwide Printer Spending in 2Q20 and Over the Course of Full-Year 2020, IDC #US46210920, April 2020) with the latest data revisited in late April. Even though the time period between the two data sets is relatively short, the latest findings offer a decidedly more negative perspective than the first survey.
We continue to examine the massive impact that the COVID-19 has had on the global economy and IT spending. Its presence has literally shutdown worldwide operations in business, in education, and across all facets of society. In this second data set, IDC continues to monitor the anticipated short-term and long-term impact on spending across several IT product segments (COVID-19 Impact on IT Spending, Wave 2).
