TECH SUPPLIER May 2022 - Market Perspective - Doc # US47974022
What We Saw: U.S. Consumer and Office Print Activity, 4Q21
This IDC Market Perspective provides an update on office and consumer printer shipment activity in the fourth quarter for the United States.
"In the fourth quarter, shipments stabilized as vendors adapted to supply chain challenges. Chip shortages constrained manufacturing, and shipping container shortages and port delays suppressed imports. As a result, printer and MFP demand continued to significantly exceed supply in the United States. Supply shortages are expected to persist until at least mid-2022." — Geoffrey Wilbur, research manager, IDC's Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions
