What We Saw: U.S. Consumer and Office Print Activity, 3Q21


Geoffrey Wilbur

This IDC Market Perspective provides an update on office and consumer printer shipment activity in 3Q21 for the United States.

"In 3Q21, shipping container shortages and port delays caused inventory shortages in the United States. As a result, printer and MFP supply was insufficient to meet demand, so unit shipments declined significantly. While vendors prioritize the manufacture and shipment of higher-margin devices to minimize the impact on their bottom lines, supply shortages are expected to persist until at least mid-2022." — Geoffrey Wilbur, research manager, IDC's Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions
