This IDC Market Perspective provides excerpts from public financial disclosures by leading hardcopy vendors and details the impact of COVID-19 and supply chain issues on performance and forecasts.

"Demand continued to outpace supply in 4Q21, with component shortages joining container shortages as a significant obstacle. While vendors continue to allocate more manufacturing and shipping resources to higher-priced, higher-margin products to buoy revenue and profits in the near term, success in 2022 will hinge on forward-looking supply and demand management." — Geoffrey Wilbur, research manager, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions at IDC
