Wave 4: Examining the Ongoing COVID-19 Impact on U.S. and Worldwide Printer Spending in 2020
This IDC Survey Spotlight examines 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 latest data set (Wave 4), IDC continues to monitor the 2020 impact on spending across several IT product segments (IDC's COVID-19 Impact on IT Spending Survey, Wave 4). This IDC Survey Spotlight examines the printer-specific question and compares the earlier April data set (see Wave 3: Examining the Ongoing COVID-19 Impact on U.S. and Worldwide Printer Spending in 2020, IDC #US46269420, May 2020) with the latest data revisited during May 7–14. Even though the time frame between the data sets is relatively short, the latest findings demonstrate a possible beacon of hope beginning to emerge.
